Guess Who
My ideal customer. Well, I have a couple of them.

My ideal customer is anyone who is aware of the dangerous toxins in the body and is looking for a way to flush them out. My programs will help cleanse these toxins which will improve your health. These programs have been used to shed unwanted pounds, so another ideal customer is someone looking to lose weight. Their motivation is the knowledge that these programs will greatly increase their overall health and help fight illness.

And I would say that my last ideal customer is someone looking to create a passive income by referring people to these programs. Many people who have used these programs have recommended them to everyone they know.

My ideal customer:

1. Owned a business for over 2 years.
2. Over 34 years of age (because any younger, they tend to be less comfortable with their own ignorance).
3. Earn over $200k in annual income.
4. In the financial services, legal, real estate, construction, or medical industries.
5. $1-$50M in Revenue
6. See the benefit of teamwork and collaboration
7. Growth-oriented - they're looking to make a huge jump in income in their career.

42% of the business owners I talk to actually qualify for VIP Coaching, they tend to be experiencing the following:

1. They're burning the candle at both ends working long hours
2. Not getting everything they had in mind when they launched their business.
3. They're constantly putting out fires.
4. They feel like all they do is just BUSINESS.
5. They're having problems with key associates or partners.
6. They've hit a plateau and don't know how to get beyond the threshold.
7. They're drowning beneath mountains of adminstrative details.
8. They've given up, lost their sense of motivation and vision.
9. They don't even have any time to think or plan. The thrill of so much happening all at once is consuming their ability to stay strategic.
10. They can't get to anything of real importance, personally and professionally. There's an enormous tension between their personal and professional life.
11. They're Prisoners of their OWN machine, with a business that consumes their life, rather than serve it.

My 40 current coaching clients are all very successful individuals looking to get better. One of them was the 3rd Fastest growing privately owned company in San Diego in 2005, and is now up for Entrepreneur of the Year in the Financial Services industry in 2006. We got there working together within 24 months. Now he's tripled his free time and income, and is incredibly satisfied with his work/life relationship.

Another client of mine is the #1 Writer in annual premium volume for Jefferson Pilot, he's a superstar financial advisor. Top of the Table producer.

Does this help give you an idea of my idea client?

My ideal customer is a startup company seeking to create an original and complex internet application, who is looking for a technical partner to help take them from specification through to a running system.

Despite the richness of services available on the web today, people with deep knowledge of specific domains continue to find new opportunities. My company provides the business and technical expertise to enable bridging from concept to feasibility and execution.

Thanks for kicking off this thread, great accompaniment to the introductions.

That is a great question, if you don't know your tarket market (although I dislike that term, don't want to see others as targets--ideal customer is a much better term) you're probably spinning your wheels talking to the wrong people.

My ideal customer is a successful business person who sees the value in networking, building relationships, keeping in touch.

I offer high touch tools which provide a more personal, yet time saving way to build those relationships, gain more referrals, show your appreciation.

Hi everyone. That is a great question, Heidi. Thanks for asking it, Jerrilynn. My ideal customer is:

-Someone who enjoys traveling, experiencing new cultures and cuisine, and enjoying life to the fullest.

-Someone who works hard and appreciates when other people work hard for them.

-Someone who values other people's knowledge, expertise, and time, and prefers to patronize them versus going around the corner thinking he'll save $1.00.

-Someone who is ethical and treats everyone fairly, despite the circumstances.

Motivators to work with Me:

-My knowledge, expertise, and experience: I am committed to obtaining ongoing specialized certifications as well as staying on top of the latest travel trends.

-My commitment to research a trip like I am booking it for myself. I am not obligated to utilize just one or two travel suppliers. I am therefore able to screen packages and offers very carefully. Additionally, I have a large network of colleagues. We frequently share valuable updated information with each other that assists us in helping our clients make the correct choice.

-My ability to handle unforeseen problems when they come along and advocate strongly for my clients. I take care of every one of my clients completely.

-My appreciation for my client and his/her confidence in booking with me. I always let my clients know how much I appreciate them via notes, cards, gifts, etc.

As owner of a commercial collections service, my ideal customers are those in the business 2 business market that bill their customer on terms. Other than that single qualification, my clients are normally revenue driven and understand that their cash flow is the life blood of their business. They are focused on business grow and development and tend to be very competitive in their market.

My ideal customer is a professional speaker or small business entreprenuer who is looking to penetrate high-profile niche markets through the board rooms of public companies. This is a person who has come to realize the value of outsourcing. He prefers to have new customers brought to his business rather than to go looking for them. My ideal customer believes in merging the power of the personal referral with technological innovation. And, he would rather have my company set the process in motion than take time away from his core business to make that happen.

My ideal customer is a mid-size company that needs an impartial opinion their current IT situation. If they have a staff I could evaluate their choices and comment on them. If they are looking for solutions I give a non-biased evaluation since I do not sell the solutions.

My other ideal client has a budget to manage their Website. This includes both SEO and SEM, which will be done in house or out sourced depending on scope and budget. I also look at the servers and their capacity to handle the loads.

Hi. My name is Becky Hassler, Owner of Virgnia Aardvark.

My ideal customer is an owner of a small business like, clothing boutiques and bridal shops, gift stores, resale and thrift shops who needs retail supplies in just the right quantity at the right price, delivered at the speed of light. If you aren't happy, I'll make it right. Your satisfaction is my guarantee.

Another ideal customer is any woman who doesn't like the look of their bra strap peeking out from under her clothes. Fine clothing retailers and bridal shops would also benefit from my product, the Beehive Bra Clip. Having the Beehive Bra Clip as an impulse purchase can convert a maybe into a sale!

My ideal customer (s)?

1. The average person who is struggling with a mindset of limitation and yet knows intuitively that they are capable of so much more. They are truly ready for their breakthrough into prosperity but just don’t know what to do. I relate so deeply to average people, because I am an average person who learned and applied the principles to break through to accomplishment and success.

2. The entrepreneur or businessperson who is driven to succeed but who knows that just as a house cannot stand without a proper foundation, all of the marketing, sales and business know-how in the world will not result in success unless you first have the internal foundation - the mindset - to succeed. They are ready to create that mindset and to stop striving and to manifest their success – easily and effortlessly.

3. The visionary – the man or woman with a larger “container” (consciousness) who is capable of receiving millions of dollars but whose consciousness needs to be “tweaked” and “honed” to attract it. Or like several of my private students, they are on the threshold of phenomenal success, may even be millionaires, but require my knowledge and teachings to support them through to their Promised Land. :-)

So, my ideal customers/students are from all walks of life. But the common denominator is that all are open and receptive to learning prosperity principles and Universal laws that will get them where they want to go, and they are drawn to me as their teacher and guide because on an intuitive level, they know that I am the right one for them.

I believe the greatest inspiration and motivation of my customers stems not only from my authenticity with regard to my teachings, but certainly from the ongoing results and testimonials of others. Those testimonials are the gold and they are also my own inspiration and motivation because they prove to me that I am doing exactly what I am supposed to be doing with my life.

My ideal customer is a CEO/CIO/CTO of a medim sized to a large sized enterprise who is looking forward for aligining his/her business strategy with the IT strategy.

He/She must have been part of establishing the enterprise and is looking forward for the perfection in the management and looking for a nonfailure framework and identification of risks beyond imagination.

Great question! I'm a new member of this network -- a good place to jump in.

My ideal customer is the "thinking reader." As an author of 2 non-fiction (creative nonfiction) books & 2 novels of dark romantic suspense (w/more of both in the pipeline), my work appeals to people who love a good story -- even when it's a true story. They like a story w/an involved storyline -- even when it's a true story. And even though they may read at times to escape, they don't check their brain at the door when they open a book.

Blessings -- Linda

My ideal customer is a ready, willing and able home buyer. A person who has good credit (600 scores or better) $35-40,000 income or a current home owner upgrading to a bigger home, some one seeling their home or an investor.

Heyy fellow preneurs :)

I've just joined this network and was intrigued reading the valuable question based on, well, the consumer.

My ideal customer would have to be a businessperson, who recognizes the curve of excellence with the utter desire for improvement, acknowledging his weaknesses and allowing advice to empower his brand. He would have to be accepting to change, and prevent his ego from clouding over his decision.

Sandra Wills
Hello, my name is Sandra Wills and I am new to the group. I am the president of a small business called the Graphics House. What I do is create marketing materials for small businesses. This includes business cards, letterhead, envelopes, brochures, post cards, websites, cd packages, etc.

When I started the business it was on a part time basis. I still had a full time job and I worked nights and weekends on the business. My clients were people I met primarily through networking at small business events hosted by the SBA, SCORE and WEDA and personal networking at my church and through friends. My clients so far have been micro entrepreneurs who worked from home and did some type of consulting. I also created a post card for an actor and a website for a woman who creates artwork that she prints on t-shirts.

About a year ago I took the business full time. At this point I need to go for a larger size business although I still want to specialize in small office, home office businesses. So I am in the process of trying to define my ideal clients. One thing I have done in this regard is to create a survey on a site called SurveyMonkey.com. If any members of this network would be willing to take my survey it would help me try and define my ideal customer.

Here is a link to the survey:

Thanks so much.

Back in April, I started an e-commerce website where I am selling pedal cars, trucks and other foot powered toys along with die cast model cars and trucks.

My ideal customers are parents (including grandparents), aunts, uncles, anyone with a disposable income looking to spoil their toddlers or toddlers they love.

Also, ideally, collectors who can't afford the genuine antique versions of these pedal car and diecast model car products (which can cost upwards into the $1,000s depending on the model) and who are willing to enjoy the look and feel of an antique pedal car or truck without paying the price for the real thing.
