Start By Focusing

I’m finding it harder and harder to focus. I’m not talking about focusing my attention, I’m talking about my eyes. It started out as being difficult to read menu’s in dimly lit restaurants, then hard to read a book in my living room. Even in well-lit rooms the words are getting fuzzy. A friend recently told me that once you start wearing glasses your eyesight declines quickly. That’s what I’m afraid of, but I know it’s time to focus.

Identify Who’s Important

When it comes to marketing it’s also important to focus. Even if you’re using mass media to build a brand it’s key to focus on who’s important. Identify the customer you want to hear your message and provide them with something that brings value to their life.

Reach them where they are now with a solution to their problem and your message will be heard. Even those potential customers who are on the fringe of your target market will hear your message and understand how you can help them.
