4 ways to identify the perfect student for your course
"An audience is a single group of people that share the specific problem your [course] solves. Why does this matter? Because the key...is actually narrowing your audience down as much as possible to only the people your [course] is intended to help." —Tucker Max, author and founder of Scribe Media
1. What's the "vibe" of your ideal student?
- What does your ideal student call themselves (e.g., title, role, identity)?
- What do they care about?
- What communities are they a part of?
- Who do they aspire to be like in their industry?
2. What pain points are they facing today?
- What is your ideal student sick of?
- What are they losing sleep over?
- What are they frustrated by?
3. Where do they want to be?
- What does your ideal student secretly wish they could change about their life or work?
- What do they dream about for their life or work?
- What do they want to be different about their life or work?
4. Who is it NOT for?
- What are the roles/titles/levels in your industry your course is not a fit for?
- What are the pain points that your course won't address?
- What are the desired outcomes that are out of scope?
