Hopefully you have decided to start the new year off by making a deeper commitment to your business by deciding to seriously develop a marketing strategy. A couple of years ago, I discovered that though I had a clear view of my target audience I needed to focus more on my niche. Analyzing my year-end results I realized that though I have a great and loyal audience, the majority did not fit my desired criteria for clients. I was able to gain more insight and develop a clearer strategy, one that further incorporated my niche. This was just one example of ways I got clearer on my marketing strategy.
