About this Episode

There are benefits to creating a business plan—even if you’re already in business for yourself. ­Consider these five checkpoints to creating a robust creative offering.

In this episode we learn:

  • interview existing clients (or clients you wish you had) to uncover primary motivations and pain points—two valuable pieces of information that will allow you to shape your best offer
  • identify your ideal client and then focus exclusively on marketing to that person
  • narrow your focus to what your ideal customer wants and needs (not what you want to sell)
  • establish the value of your offer—use price as a differentiator
  • test your “offer” with people who fit your ideal client profile
  • when pricing, start where the market is (not lower!)

 

Design Intervention

Build a tribe of five—those people who inspire and motivate you.
