Target Market

Beyond the ideal customer profile you have above, you need to have a description of the entire demographic you want to attract. Write the most important characteristics of your target audience, such as gender and ethnic diversity, geographic location, and shopping habits. 

 

Messaging

Your messaging strategy is how you talk about yourself as a brand to potential customers. The messages you convey (be they actual text or an emotion) are how you communicate directly with your customer and position yourself in their minds relative to your competitors.
