Perfect customers

EPISODE 39: How Leaders Find Their Perfect Customer

Getting in depth with your customers’ definition is one of the critical characteristics of highly successful business leaders.

In this episode, let me share with you some of the questions I have asked myself that helped me get clear on who my perfect customer is.

Key takeaways:

  • When you’re finding yourself having to educate your customers, you’re probably with the wrong avatar…a wrong person to serve.
  • It is every Leader and CEO’s responsibility to know who their businesses are serving. Getting in depth with your customers’ definition is one of the key characteristics of highly successful business leaders.
  • The people who make your heart feel lightest and you feel good connecting with will give you a clue on who your customers are. The ones that you feel like it’s a lot of work? They’re probably not your customers.
  • Oftentimes, how we earn and spend our money represent our values. To find out your perfect customers and consumers, recognise the values behind their earning and spending habits, and determine if you can speak to those values. It helps if your values drive business decision making.
  • Your perfect customer is usually you.
