How to Find the Right Clients for YOU

Jul 24, 2021

In his book, This is Marketing, Seth Godin shared this story about a comedian who's agent booked him at a spot in New York City.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When he showed up to the club, he was in a great mood, and brought his best material.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The show starts he's really working the room, but no one is laughing. Not a peep. He's bombing.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Post-show he's frustrated, confused and his inner critic is giving him a beating. He's thinking about quitting comedy.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then at some point he realizes the audience was an Italian tour group, and no one understood English.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Clearly, that show wasn't for for them, yet here this guy was about to throw in the towel.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Next time you feel frustrated and are thinking about calling it quits, remember this story.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Yes, it's possible that maybe what you're offering isn't as good as it needs to be (yet! - there's things that can be done) but it's also possible that you just haven't been clear about who it is for in the first place.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To help do that Seth recommends this exercise:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My product is for people who believe _________________.
I will focus on people who want _____________.
I promise that engaging with what I make will help you get ___________.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To help do this...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In addition to knowing yourself more, the Enneagram also gives a ton of language around what other people want and value that could be helpful in putting words to your thoughts.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You could also put out an ask today to talk with a handful of people that you'd like to serve to better understand what they need and want.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What other ways have you found helpful to bring clarity to who you want to serve and what they want?
