If you don't have your target audience nailed down from the start of your campaign, you are shooting yourself in the foot. Knowing who you are marketing to goes hand-in-hand with knowing what they want. After you know what they want, don't hesitate to give it to them!

After you have made a list, do some research and come up with a solution to some of these problems and compile it into a report. Remember, people work for their money and they aren't going to buy from you unless you have something that they really want.

Finding your target audience will put you directly on the path toward your goal. Marketing directly to this audience will speed up the process by which you reach this goal, and giving your audience a reason to buy from you, rather than your competition will assure you a hefty paycheck at the end of the month.
