Making the Right Offers


After you've determined who your target audience is, the next step in your content marketing plan is to ensure that you are making the right offers. The products and services that you are offering should be tailored to attract your primary customers. Your primary customers are what matter most and now that you’ve spent the time to identify them, it is now time to give them what they want.

To understand the kinds of offers that are more likely to be successful in your market, you have to go back and take a look at your primary customers. You must understand what they need, what their problems are, and their motivations in order to find the best offers to offer them. There is a degree of trial and error involved when developing the best offers and it can take some time for the perfect offer to materialize. You might come up with multiple offers that will serve your target audience. To find the right offer you need to have a deep understanding of what matters most to your primary customers. To pinpoint the most valuable thing to offer them, you have to have a deep understanding of your target audience.

Developing the Right Offer

Product development requires a lot of patience, whether you are developing a digital course, physical product, or consulting service.

Your company is built on what you can offer your customers and simply throwing something together for the sake of having something to sell, is not the right way to grow your business. This makes market validation a critical part of developing the right offers for your target audience. Before you start designing your offering, it is essential to take the following key steps.

Get the Facts

You can accomplish this in a number of different ways. You can start by surveying them and asking questions that will help you quickly determine if your assumptions are right.

Finding Your Audience

All successful copywriting campaigns contain three elements. First, you need to find the right target audience. Once you've determined your target audience, you need to develop the right offer, and finally, you need the right copy. All three elements must be present if you want your content marketing campaign to be successful. You can hire the best copywriter, but if you aren't targeting the right audience or have a mediocre offer, the work you do on your content will count for nothing.

To create a successful content marketing strategy, you have to have a deep understanding of your audience. You need to focus your efforts on evergreen content that holds its value over time, and that continues to be useful to your audience. While you may have a rough idea of who your target audience is, you probably don't have a clearly defined persona that you can build a marketing strategy around. That's why it is essential for your business to develop a customer avatar.

Why You Need a Customer Avatar

Over the last several years, the concept of a customer avatar has been gaining momentum. Developing a customer avatar allows you to develop a deeper understanding of your customer’s motivations, desires, fears, and problems that influence their buying decisions. Creating a profile that indicates your customer's priorities, challenges, and goals, allows you to tailor your marketing campaign to serve them best.

While every business caters to a wide range of customers, creating a customer avatar allows you to identify your primary customer, those individuals for whom your service is a no-brainer. When determining if a market segment is the right fit for your business, you need to take a three-fold approach and consider; perspective, capabilities, and profit potential. 

Assessing Perspective

This is about ensuring that your customer’s attitudes are in alignment with yours. You are trying to ensure that they have comparable sensibilities, priorities, and direction to your company. It is essential that the perspectives between your customers and your business are in alignment. 

Assessing Capabilities

This is about your company's embedded resources. This includes the resources and assets that position your company to serve a specific type of customer better than another. The key to choosing the right audience is determining if your capabilities fit with the perspective and profit potential....

Developing Your Content Marketing Strategy

One of the most powerful arms you can add to your overall marketing strategy is content marketing. Content marketing is used to establish you as a subject matter expert, which leads to an increase in your company’s revenue, as well as having a high-profit potential. However, creating content to build your audience and create a successful business is not a fast growth strategy. It takes months for the content you produce to grow into its potential.

Before you begin creating content for your business, you need to have a clear picture of your business goals if you want to develop a successful marketing strategy. This is especially true when it comes to content marketing. It is essential for you to have a consistent approach when it comes to the content that you are producing. Having a regular strategy provides you with content that keeps your audience engaged, resulting in them seeing you as an authority on the subject. When your business is seen as an authority on a subject, your audience is more likely to purchase from you when the time is right.

For your business to see a return on investment regarding your content marketing effort, it is essential that you develop a comprehensive ecosystem around your central content platform. Developing a complete system helps to leverage your resources to help you grow your business, rather than wasting your resources. For you to have a successful content marketing campaign, it is vital that you see your complete content marketing strategy as an ecosystem in which your content is a dynamic medium, where your customers are involved at every stage.

The Content Marketing Ecosystem

The content strategy that you first develop will grow and evolve. For your strategy to be healthy and productive, you must include many different elements. There are two main types of content that you will have to consider when developing your strategy; recurring content and content assets. Recurring content is content that builds your customer base over time, while content assets are used as a near-term client acquisition tool.

When working with a recurring system, there are six parts that need to be included to ensure a healthy ecosystem;

  • High-quality front-end content
  • An opt-in offer
  • An email onboarding sequence
  • An initial conversion opportunity
  • A follow-up sequence
  • Another conversion opportunity

The asset system consists of four parts and can be used on its own or combined with the recurring system. The four elements necessary for the asset content system to be useful are as follows;

  • A high-quality long-form content asset
  • An initial engagement opportunity
  • An initial conversion opportunity
  • A follow-up email sequence

Here is a quick look at the parts that you should include for both the recurring content system and the content asset system. .....

3 Steps to Help You Build Your Perseverance for Entrepeneurial Success

3 Steps to Help You Build Your Perseverance for Business Success

​One of the critical components of success is perseverance. Without an ability to keep moving forward when faced with challenges and setbacks, you can't expect to find success as an entrepreneur. Perseverance is what allows you to overcome difficulties and failures and can make all the difference in the world on your entrepreneurial journey. As with any of the other entrepreneurial traits, you can build your perseverance with practice. Here are three steps to help develop your perseverance and put you on the right path to success.

1. Spend 10-Minutes Practicing

You can start building your perseverance by practicing on smaller projects that you want to get done. Pick a task that you think you can finish in a couple of weeks, then commit to not quitting until you've completed the project, even if you can only invest 10 minutes a day for working on the task. You can let yourself off the hook for a day but must start on it again the next day. Just 10 minutes a day will keep you moving forward in accomplishing your goals.

2. Develop Your Dream

Before you start working on your projects and goals, take some time to imagine how you will feel as you work on it and when you’ve completed it. Imagine yourself being engaged in the process and feel the fulfillment, harmony, and pride that comes with accomplishing your goal. Visualize the stages of the work and what it will look like when it's completed. Set aside some time to imagine the broad sense of feelings associated with the project from start to completion.

3. Cultivate Your Optimism

Research has found that the difference between people who give up when faced with challenges and difficulties and those who keep moving forward despite setbacks is how they think about good and adverse events. When you have an optimistic outlook on life, you see adverse events as temporary. Those who are pessimists, on the other hand, see adverse events as being set in stone and affecting every aspect of their life. The key to building perseverance is to listen to your self-talk and work at moving it to a more optimistic view.

Following these steps will help you to build your perseverance. It is what keeps you moving forward no matter what challenges you face, and is a key aspect of success.

Doing this will help you to understand better how much you actually get done during the day and where your valuable moments are going. This will allow you to see how much time you are spending producing results and how much time you waste on unproductive thoughts and activities.  

3. Don’t Instantly Give People Your Attention

Start practicing not answering the phone just because it’s ringing and stop reading your emails the moment they show up.

4 Tips for Facing Your Fears to Achieve Entrepreneurial Success

4 Tips for Facing Your Fears to Achieve Entrepreneurial Success

Fear can be extraordinarily crippling and is often the Achilles heel for many entrepreneurs. Unfortunately, for many entrepreneurs, the overwhelming feeling of stepping outside their comfort zone is just too much to bear and stops them from achieving success. If you want to obtain success on your entrepreneurial journey, you have to face your fears. Here are four tips to help you overcome the fears that are holding you back from success.

1. Identify Your Fears

The first step to overcoming your fear is to identify your fears, as well as your goals. When you know exactly what it is you want to accomplish, as well as what you don't want, it allows you to stay focused on pursuing your goals. Knowing your fears helps to prepare you for any challenges that you may face, allowing you to come up with a solid plan for overcoming them.

2. Think Positively

It is a well-known fact that when you nurture positive thoughts in every aspect of your life, you are better able to attract success, abundance, and prosperity. This is what is known as the law of attraction. To keep fear at bay, you have to make your positive thoughts dominate the negative ones. You can do this by reciting daily, positive affirmations.

3. Start Small

Your fears will come in many different shapes and sizes. Not every fear that you face will be significant. However, even the smallest of your fears can break you into a thousand pieces. For you to be able to fight your bigger goals, it is important to take smaller steps and keep moving forward. It's the same idea for breaking up larger goals into smaller, more manageable tasks. Starting small can help you to reduce your fear, and it forces you to take action rather than running from your fears.

4. Don’t Dwell on Scarcity

People who tend to quit when things get tough are usually dwelling on scarcity. They accept what little they have and avoid trying harder to accomplish what they want in life. While it is essential to be happy with what you have, you should never dwell on what you don't have.

Facing your fears is never an easy process, but it is necessary if you want to be a successful entrepreneur. Use these tips in your daily life, and you'll quickly find that you are able to face all your fears and achieve the success you desire as an entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurs who have a fixed mindset tend to dwell on their failures and see any setbacks and challenges that they might face as a reason to throw in the towel and give up on their dreams of becoming successful. To help you drive your ventures forward and find success, here are four ways that you can develop a growth mindset.

1. Embrace Challenges

There's always a positive reason to embrace challenges. If you beat a problem, you reap the rewards; if you don't overcome a challenge, you still learn valuable lessons in your failure. If you do everything you can to avoid problems that you may face, you will never grow as an entrepreneur, and neither will your business. Embracing challenges will allow you to achieve higher things in both your business and personal life.

2. Expect Setbacks

When running a business, you have to expect that you will have setbacks, and learn how to overcome them. In order to have a growth mindset, you have to learn how to persist in the face of setbacks and avoid dwelling on the reasons that you failed. When you can do this, inevitable setbacks will be nothing more than a small bump in the road.

3.   Listen to Criticism

Use the feedback you get to improve your business. Criticism isn’t a bad thing and can be very useful to your business. If you want to develop a growth mindset, you have to listen to your customer’s feedback. Learn to conquer your fear of disapproval by listening to feedback and focusing on how you can improve. Entrepreneurs who develop a growth mindset know that there is always room for improvement.

4. Be Inspired by Others’ Success

You should never feel threatened by the success of other entrepreneurs. Instead, you should look at their success as inspiration to do better. Reach out to other successful entrepreneurs and don't be afraid to ask for help. Every entrepreneur deals with the same self-doubts and being jealous of others' success and doing this will only make you feel more inadequate in your own life.

Once you develop a growth mindset, you can apply it to almost anything in your life. If you want to be a successful entrepreneur, you have to get out of your own way and learn to develop and use a growth mindset to your advantage.
