Am I a fraud? Dealing With Imposter Syndrome

Even after writing eleven books and winning several awards, Maya Angelou couldn’t escape the doubt that she hadn’t earned her accomplishments.

Who Do You Serve? : Identifying Your Target Audience.
Every brand or business out there is supposed to solve a problem of a want or a need.
Whether you’re selling makeup products or building websites, both businesses have one thing in common. That’s serving a particular group of people who have a desire to experience an outcome that can only be provided by these businesses.
The ultimate question every brand should ask is:
What group of people have the greatest desire to acquire the outcome that our solution provides?
The answer to this question is going help you identify the category or industry you want to serve, your target market, your target audience, your target group and finally your ideal customer avatar or audience persona.
I can’t stress enough on the importance of identifying the people who can benefit the most from our products and services especially now that, there is so much content and solutions out there.
Using the strategies in this episode, I believe we can narrow our audience from everyone to a specific group of people that represent our target audience.
Defining the audience for your brand gives you a foundation to build upon. It gives you the stability to make decisions:
How to tell your story
How to position your products and services against the competition
How to engage your audience in authentic and meaningful ways
Clearly stating who you serve takes your brand to the next level.
Identifying Your Brand’s Purpose
Times are changing. When choosing brands to do business with, today’s consumers care about more than just what products or services they offer—they care about what kind of impact brands are making in the world. And if you want to take your brand to the next level, you need a sense of purpose—a sense of purpose your audience truly connects to.
In this episode, We talk about how to identify your brand's purpose, the difference between a purpose statement, vision statement and a mission statement.
We also look at how to write a brand purpose statement.
