Identify your audience

The first step is to find out who your audience is and how they like to communicate. It’s important to know what matters to your audience – their likes, dislikes, struggles, interests, goals, etc. Basically, anything that will help you connect with them on an emotional level. Make sure you know what makes them tick – what’s important to them? What do they like? What don’t they like? What are their “pain points,” and how can you help them with those? Once you know these things, it’s much easier to tailor your messaging and style based on this information.

Choose your platform

It is important to make sure that you are targeting the right platforms for your message. Platforms can be social media outlets like Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok, where people will likely use them more often than they would their email or text messages on the phone. Or maybe you want to limit your platform to email or newsletters.

What does your audience want?

If you already have a few fans, clients, or followers, you’re ahead of the game because you can ask them questions directly. 

  • What’s the single biggest result you want to have? 
  • What is important about that result for you? 
  • What are your biggest challenges? 
  • When it comes to your career or business, what do you want to change in the next 30 days? (You could create a workshop around this for your followers!) 
  • What sort of project would you like me to do next? 
  • More than anything, what would you like me to know? 
  • What are some video topics you’d like me to tackle?
