Are you sometimes feeling invisible to the people you want to help? You're not the only one!
It can be frustrating to put so much time and effort into your brand, only to feel like nobody is paying attention. The good news is, there are specific things you can change to increase your visibility and attract more of your ideal customers.
Here are the top 5 reasons why your target audience may not be seeing you
1. THE PROBLEM: You're trying to fit in instead of standing out.
This is an extra challenge for the people pleasers amongst us *I'm raising my hand!
2. THE PROBLEM: You have an unclear brand voice.
You try a bit of this and that. One week you sound like a princess from Ancient Greece and the next week like a stressed-out math teacher.
3. THE PROBLEM: You're focusing on the wrong audience.
Or you try to be there for everyone because your heart is as large as the ocean
- The Cure: Make sure you understand who your target audience is and tailor your message and marketing efforts to them.

It's loving and caring with soft colors and crystals on Tuesday and loud and Retro-Punk in the weekend. So your audience is confused. Who's the real one?, they wonder.
- The Cure: Your branding should be consistent across all platforms, so your audience knows what to expect from your brand.

You post "I've seen the light: a great idea is about to happen", on Sunday. But nothing for the remainder of the week. So your curious target audience has completely forgotten about your great idea.
- The Cure: Make sure your marketing efforts are reaching the right audience at the right time.
