Shownotes

In this episode, Tara breaks down why your sales strategy should NOT be focused on selling based on volume and an 'everyone can use it' philosophy. The more specific you are about who you are selling to, the more sales you will receive (even if you have a small niche size).

Speaker:

Hey everybody, it's Tara Bryan, and you are listening to the

Speaker:

Speaker:

Speaker:

Speaker:

fastest path to results. This podcast will give you practical

Speaker:

real life tips that you can use today to build your online

Speaker:

experiences that get results and create raving fans. Why? So you

Speaker:

can monetize your expertise and serve more people without adding

Speaker:

more time for team to your business. If you're looking to

Speaker:

uncover your million dollar framework, package it and use it

Speaker:

to scale, you're in the right place. Let's dive in.

Speaker:

Hey, everybody, welcome to the episode. In this episode, I want

Speaker:

to talk about your audience. Okay, so I'm going to just say

Speaker:

this, because this is maybe my rant for the day. But if there's

Speaker:

a topic that people need to hear over, and over and over and over

Speaker:

and over again, it is building your course for one audience,

Speaker:

the more you can build for one audience, the more specific you

Speaker:

can be around your messaging, your

Speaker:

ads, your sales process, and you can help that one type of person

Speaker:

go from where they are to where they want to be right, so you

Speaker:

can put them on one path that that sends them through to your,

Speaker:

the fastest path to to how you're getting results, right.

Speaker:

So really, really think about that, when you're reflecting on

Speaker:

who you want to serve and how to get your expertise out there is,

Speaker:

the more specific you can be about one avatar, the more

Speaker:

successful you're going to be in getting the whole process dialed

Speaker:

in, the more you send it out to everyone or to anyone or all of

Speaker:

those other, you know, like avatars, right? The less they're

Speaker:

less specific it is, the harder it is to sell. So so often

Speaker:

people are under the Miss misguidance, that if you build

Speaker:

something that's for everyone that it will actually allow you

Speaker:

to serve more people. The problem is, is that if people

Speaker:

can't identify with who it is you're selling to, and what the

Speaker:

problem is, is that that you're solving, they will not buy. And

Speaker:

so that's why dialing in one avatar is very important because

Speaker:

it helps to just direct focus. It's like a laser pointer, right

Speaker:

directs focus at specifically at the right person, and solves

Speaker:

their specific problem. Now, once you have all of that dialed

Speaker:

in, then you may want to go to some other audiences in the

Speaker:

future. And that's great. But don't start with everyone.

Speaker:

Because what happens is that no one buys, right. Because if it's

Speaker:

for everyone, it's actually for no one. And if you are like me

Speaker:

and you have a family,

Speaker:

then what happens is when you say Can somebody take care of

Speaker:

this, then guess who volunteers? Yep, that person called nobody,

Speaker:

right? And so you have to be targeted, you have to be

Speaker:

specific, you have to be clear in your messaging as to who it

Speaker:

is that you want to be into your in your program, and how you can

Speaker:

provide them results. So I really, this is gonna be a short

Speaker:

episode. But I really want to be clear about how that process

Speaker:

works, because that is your special sauce. It's not how much

Speaker:

stuff you put in. It's not, you know, the bells and whistles,

Speaker:

and the gamification and all of the things, all of that enhances

Speaker:

the experience once they're in the door, which is wonderful and

Speaker:

fabulous. And I talk about that all day long. But the problem

Speaker:

is, is that if you want to attract the right people, and

Speaker:

get a lot of people into your program, you have to be specific

Speaker:

in terms of who it is that you serve. So fight the urge to be

Speaker:

out there for everyone, right? All business owners, all people

Speaker:

who do this all people who are interested in this, fight that

Speaker:

urge and be laser focused and specific. Once you do that, the

Speaker:

game changes you get the right people who raised their hand and

Speaker:

so yes, that's me, I resonate with that, then you can send

Speaker:

them in to your path and be very specific about how you help

Speaker:

them. Alright, there you go. Think about that. Look at that

Speaker:

within your own program and verify that you are being

Speaker:

specific than all your marketing, all your branding,

Speaker:

all of your messaging should be just for that person. Right?

Speaker:

Imagine that they're sitting next to you at your desk and

Speaker:

you're too

Speaker:

Talking to them what do they need what are they feeling how

Speaker:

do you want to help them solve their problem and make it

Speaker:

personal to them alright there you go there is your course
