Pivoting Tips For Your Business
Create an Avatar & identify what your current problem is. Is your product or service not reaching its intended audience, or is it reaching no audience because one simply doesn’t exist?
Pay attention to what your customers are trying to tell you.
Have you create a problem or show the problem for your client because you might be attempting to solve a problem that doesn’t actually exist? Are you hearing“we don’t need this product or service in exactly this way,” Or “we don’t need this AT ALL,”
Work hard to not only build brand awareness but to get your audience on the same page with the direction you’re actually headed in effect immediately.
You’ll need to be able to properly communicate to your new audience who may be somewhat familiar with your old brand what your new goals are and what problems in their lives you’re trying to solve.
Along those same lines, a successful pivot is actually a terrific opportunity to take your brand story and make it even stronger and more compelling. People always love a good story that’s more relatable to your specific target audience.
Talk about why you started your business in the first place.If people love a good story, the heart of any narrative is conflict. What could be a more relatable story.
If you’re able to execute this properly, you’ll be able to build awareness for your new direction AND build a much stronger emotional bridge to your audience than ever before.
