Having a great product or service is fine, but at the end of the day it has to reach the right retail customers without which nothing significant will be achieved. Identifying the right retail customers and keeping them in good humor is easier said than done.

It would be interesting to look at a few important points which could help you to identify the retail buyers in a scientific and intelligent way. Otherwise you will literally end up picking needles from haystack and will get frustrated sooner than later.

Do They Know Your Product or Service Properly

The starting point in the search of the right retail customers is to identify their needs and requirements. If you are into the business of baking buns and confectioneries, you cannot afford to be one amongst the many thousands. You will be literally blown away before you know what is happening.

Before even contemplating selling a product to your retail customers, be sure that your product is known to them. You also must be sure that your product is not run of the mill stuff. It should be something which will interest them to have a second look.

Do You Have Your Story Right

No one is going to buy your product unless you are able to offer a persuasive and interesting reason for it. You must find out ways and means by which you can inform the prospective customers about your product or service. The information must be engaging, short, and must kindle their imagination.

How To Identify the Right Customer Segment

Not all products are for all customers and not all customers are for all products. Each customer has a unique need and desire. The burden lies on you to identify that segment of customers who would be willing to try your product out. In your research you should seek for:

  • the right age group
  • the right gender
  • social background
  • income levels, and
  • buying habits.

Use various tools while doing your research.

Identify the Right Geography

In today’s internet world it's quite common to become excited and go overboard. Many of us often think that we can sell almost anything to any geographical location. This is naïve. We must identify the right geography and ensure that we build our customer base around that.

So, keep these few things in mind while you are on the job of targeting the right customers.
