In the market, Geminis are perceived as versatile, innovative, and quick on their feet. Their ability to adapt and think on the spot makes them stand out among their competitors. Ideal clients for a Gemini brand are individuals who seek and enjoy being entertained, value diversity, and seek constant stimulation. Ideal customers are based on demographics and psychographics. Demographics are not what we are concerned with here - where they live, how much they earn, how many kids they have, where they went to school. We want to connect with their minds and their hearts. Their emotions and their psyche. Gemini’s ideal customers are those who look at Geminis and think I need those skills. I need to be able to think on my feet, to be able to adapt and change my energy and frequency to be able to connect with others, use humour to diffuse and cut through.Have you ever met a Gemini who was lost for words eh!
Ideal customers are those who tend to over think, analyse to within an inch of their lives and over intellectualise, hey Sagittarius, those who want to connect with others but wonder what to say.
Remember ideal customers are those who love you and you love working with it. It’s an energetic soul connection where you expand into your greater self as you elevate them and help them get where they want to go faster.
