How Can You Create an Ideal Customer Profile,
1. You need to really know your target audience before you create YouTube Live streams. Don’t do anything else before you create a profile of your ideal customers!
? A basic profile should include the gender, age, location and relevant interests of your target audience;
? Start from those details, and gradually work your way to more specific information about your ideal customers and prospects; and
? Find out where they’re hanging out online, what they’re exactly looking for in relation to your content, the apps and tools that they regularly use on the Internet, how they react and what they expect from an online video that’s relevant to their interests.
2. You should also create a profile of your direct competitors. You’ll be able to learn a lot of things that can be very helpful for optimizing your YouTube Live campaigns.
? Focus on your competitors with websites and YouTube channels that are very popular to your target audience;
? Use competitor analytics tools to identify the traffic generation methods that are driving steady streams of targeted prospects to their websites and YouTube channels; and
? Once you determine their best traffic generation methods, check out the advertising platforms, referring sites and social networks that they use for their campaigns. There might be possible advertising and content placement opportunities for you in those places.
3. Non-competing businesses for possible content placement, advertising and affiliate partnerships can significantly help your YouTube Live campaigns. Imagine partnering up with a business that can announce your YouTube Live streams to their thousands of subscribers!
? Focus on finding partners with non-competing Web properties that are still very popular to your target audience; and
? Also use competitor analytics tools to find out their best traffic generation methods for their Web properties. This’ll allow you to confirm if it’d be viable for you to partner up with them for a mutually beneficial deal.
To summarize, you need to create a profile of your ideal customers and prospects. You should also create a profile of your direct competitors, and another profile of possible partners.
So now, we move on to the things that you must do to optimize your YouTube Live campaigns. Here they are:
