If you can focus on the right customers the impact will be there today.Trying to appeal to everyone can be a path to failure in a world of immense choices. Because we all have the world at our fingertips via search and social media, marketing has to be focused on specific and targeted groups.
In the past age where we thought like industrialists, we sought to throw money and volume to gain attention with the masses, hoping to be heard. The screaming and spending contests don’t work when buyers are empowered to tune out the noise on every level. Instead, customized marketing that is designed to be heard by a specific group of people who “get you” has ended the mass approach to marketing.
The hard part of today’s new economy is getting clear, and resonating and remaining congruent with your audience. It may be a different mindset where you are laser focused on working with the few rather than the many. It entails providing intimate value at the right times in the right ways with your tribe of believers.
Sustain Excitement Through a Customized Approach
The hard part of the approach is creating excitement and belief. Having raving fans that truly get excited about who you are and how you approach your craft is like the coals that sustain a good fire. The excitement factor can be because of the story you represent or the experience you create.
Fostering and building your audience’s belief in who you are comes over time from connection and credibility. The things that your customers and prospective customers notice and similarly value constitute this powerful part of building belief within a tribe. It is how a custom and personalized approach works with people who love you. You represent them and give them something to rally around.
The approach to custom marketing means a lot more thinking about who you are as a brand and how that shines through to people who get you. Crack that code and aim it at a smaller, more eager contingency, and you will have all the business to build something great. Keep remaining scattered and thinking in mass, and the impact can be quite diluted by the noise out there.
