Selling online is all about “Showing the perfect product to the perfect audience”.

Most of the newbies don?t understand what is the perfect product or the perfect audience. Most of them think their favorite product is going to be a HIT. No, it doesn?t happen that way.


What is the perfect Product?

The perfect product is the most useful product to the customer.

Do you think A Golf lover is going to buy a Table tennis equipment worth 110$?

Answer is NO. A Golf lover doesn?t see any usefulness of purchasing table tennis equipment. So why would he spend money on something that won?t give any use?

Below are some psychological factors that are applicable to the customers at the time of purchasing.


  • Can the product solve the problem?

Eg -Gamer who is suffering from back pain due to prolonged sitting hours.

You can try this product that can help to solve his problem.

What Is the Perfect Audience?

We should show our product to the people who really want it or really like it.

Ex- If you promote Spider man phone cover on Yoga Facebook page. That doesn?t provide the perfect audience for the spider man phone cover. You should look for an audience who loves Spiderman and passionate about Spiderman.

A passionate audience is willing to pay whatever the price if you bring the correct product to them. They are hungry about their passion.

Try to understand the market and keep testing products.
