Effective ways to target the audience in Marijuana Industry:
- Research before anything is the key to success, that means before entering the business of marijuana you have to conduct a complete research on it. After that you have to research on the audience you are going to deal with, in that you have to make a list of several things like what age group you are going to target, is it going to be gender oriented audience or not. All these points have to be sorted out beforehand.
- Understand your targeted audience, normally people confused the two concepts of targeted market and targeted audience. Do not consider the two concepts as one and do not confuse yourself. Now, generally the two are same but the term target audience is more elaborated. Let’s take an example to differentiate between the two, in a city your target market is only males of age around 24-30 but in case of target audience you should know more about your target like their favourite strain, when did they last visit, their birthday functions, what do they purchase more often.
- Creating buyer personas can also help in keeping people engaged and attracted towards your products. For that purpose, you have to create a trust level with your customers and also you have to focus upon the demographic information based upon the behaviours, activities, motivation and goals of the target market. If you come to know that who are your targeted audience then you have to move forward to the next step that is to make sure to provide them whatever they demand.
