Establishing your business' guiding principles

Who is Your Perfect Client?

Posted by Corky Roth on October 01, 2012

As the Marketing Strategist and Business Development guy for Digett, one part of my job is to bring on new clients — a task that requires answering as many questions as I ask. One I’m asked quite often is, “Who is your perfect client?” I love this question because I can immediately tell that the person sitting across from me gets it. They really want to understand my business so they can help.

The typical answer

I used to identify our target market by listing popular indicators about a company I thought would be a likely fit for Digett to work with:

A mid-sized B2B organization with hefty annual revenues that translated to a certain amount of marketing spend, salespeople, blah blah blah.

But, my perspective changed after Digett established our Guiding Principles.

Nice tie in to the website and story. Strange how many of the old rules regarding marketing and business strategy, have changed with the computer and social networking.
Looks like you are staying on top of it quite well.

I don't understand one single thing about your business, but I know you must be a great addition to Digett!
