Get to know your customers better in 60 minutes

Do you operate a hospitality establishment? Do you have a broad customer base and sometimes find it difficult to know who to target in your communication? Take the “Know your customers better” coaching session and redefine your target audience with our experts!

You launched your concept to draw as many customers as possible. Defining a target audience makes you feel like you have to “choose” amongst them. But in the end, by targeting everyone, you end up reaching no one! Choosing doesn’t mean that you have to give up. You’ll gain in effectiveness. In addition, this will help you with all the strategic decisions you’ll need to take later on. How do you define your target?  The answer in 60 minutes. 

Adapt your pricing in just 60 minutes!

By the end of the hour-long coaching session, you’ll be able to: 

  • differentiate between target andclientèle
  • understand that your target is your brand and your customers are your turnover
  • create a profile of your target
