Your first step is to identify your potential customers. Who will be interested in your product? How many of these people will actually purchase it? Narrow your target audience. Then, tailor your advertisements to this group. Place ads in magazines, newspapers, and on websites you think they are interested in. If your plan doesn't seem to be working after a few months, take time to reassess your target.


Identify your customer. Before you can identify your customer's need or problem, you must identify your target or typical customer. Your target audience is the specific customer profile your are trying to reach. This could be people of a certain gender, age, profession, interest set, group, or any other quality that you think makes a customer want to buy your product. In other words, these are the people who are most likely to buy your product and the people that you tailor your marketing to.[2]

As mobile teams, it’s important to view user communication as a holistic entity. It's not only the message that matters to the end user, but also the ability to communicate with them on channels they prefer. In the real world, there’s no such thing as a person who exclusively uses email or exclusively opens push notifications. We all opt for different channels at different times, and businesses should start doing the same.
Traditional marketers have long used content to disseminate information about a brand and build a brand's reputation. Taking advantage of technological advances in transportation and communication, business owners started to apply content marketing techniques in the late 19th century. They also attempted to build connections with their customers. For example:
In fact, according to recent research by Twilio, nearly seven out of 10 businesses think they’re communicating with their customers effectively, while only two out of 10 customers agree. One clear way that customers want to be reached is messaging. Whether it’s in-app chat, push notifications, SMS, or other channels, messaging ranks among the top three prefered channels for customer service around the world.
Whereas SlideShares are typically visual, Kessler's is heavily focused on copy: The design stays constant, and only the text changes. But the copy is engaging and compelling enough for him to pull that off. Why? Because he uses simple words so his readers understand what he's trying to say without any effort. He writes like he speaks, and it reads like a story, making it easy to flip through in SlideShare form.
thank you for this. i used to be an in-house copywriter back when i was in the philippines and looking back, i have to accept that it was my best work ever (because it didn’t feel like work and was more like a way of life). i decided not to pursue it when i came to canada because i had other things in mind – mainly to build a family. though i am still happily married to the same husband who brought me here almost 15 years ago, we never had kids and i am just living a ho-hum life of a dispensable clerk in an insurance company. i survived two take-overs and am living on a not-so-bad clerk’s salary and the promise of a little pension when i get too old and creaky, but i have to admit that i still miss copywriting (especially when i get reminded of how my job is just sucking the life out of me.) there’s this big chunk of my heart that is raring to copywrite again but with a rusted out experience, i honestly don’t know how and where to start anew.
