Target Market

Who is your ideal customer avatar (ICA)?

For example: Career women seeking mental and physical wellness. The ICA has trouble sleeping at night and has little time for self-care. Due to various stressors in work and life, the ICA feels out of alignment with her authentic self.

The ICA is on Pinterest seeking tips on different healthy ways to reduce anxiety. These tips include meditation, mindfulness, affirmations and other ways to improve her quality of life.

Start with your target market’s frequently asked questions. What questions do you get asked the most about your business?

Then work backwards to determine those key words.

Not sure what specific search terms are your target audience entering into the Google search bar?

Conduct keyword analysis in Google: “FAQ [insert topic]”

For example, since I write a lot about Pinterest SEO, I would enter "FAQ Pinterest" or "FAQ SEO" or "FAQ Pinterest SEO"
