  • Exactly who makes up your target audience? Your target audience is comprised of all those people who may be interested in the products or services you are offering. For instance, if you are selling swimsuits, your target audience is anyone who is interested in going swimming whether it’s to the beach, the health club or on vacation. The likelihood of generating too much success in areas where it is cold all of the time such as Alaska is slim, so you don’t want to target those region. It doesn’t mean no one is Alaska goes swimming, but it does mean your success rate will be greatly reduced. http://www.webfire.com/free-training
