Crafting the perfect client avatar is a key component to any business’s marketing strategy. Knowing who your target audience is and what they are looking for can help you create content that will speak to them, attract their attention, and convert leads into customers. But how do you go about creating an effective client avatar? Let’s take a look at some of the best ways to create an accurate and useful client avatar.

Research your audience

One of the first steps in crafting your ideal client avatar is to research your audience. Start by taking a look at your current customer base and see if there are any commonalities between them. What age group do they tend to fall into? What gender? What kind of interests do they have, or what problems are they trying to solve with your product or service? All of these questions will help inform your decision when it comes time to create your ideal customer profile. A good tip is to research their Facebook profiles to see if there are common interests or themes that you are starting to notice. Finding out what pages they like and what groups they belong to and engage in often is invaluable information.

Create detailed profiles

Once you’ve done some research on your current customers, it’s time to start creating detailed profiles for each type of customer that you want to target. Ask yourself questions like: What is the problem and pain that they are experiencing? What do they need from my product/service? What challenges or goals do they have? How can I best address their needs and wants? What are their greatest fears and desires? By creating detailed profiles for each type of customer, you can ensure that you’re targeting the right people with your marketing efforts and key messaging. There are great templates that you can find and use. 

Amazing things will happen when you speak to and listen to the consumer.

Find out where they hang online

Now that you know who you want to target with your marketing efforts, it’s time to find out where those people hang out online. Are they active on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter? Do they frequent certain forums or message boards like Reddit and Discord? Are there any industry-specific websites they visit frequently? Knowing where potential customers are spending their time online will help you tailor your messaging and to advertise/engage on those same platforms so that it reaches them in the most effective and efficient way possible.

Interview them

Personally, I like going straight to the horse’s mouth when it comes to discovery. If I want to attract more dream clients, I look to my existing dream clients to tell me more about who they are and why they love engaging with my product or service. Asking them about their problems and how your business provides the solution allows you the opportunity to attract more great clients like the ones you already have. Asking their opinion and even incentivizing their response will also make them feel valued in the process. It’s a win-win situation!
