If you don’t have incredibly specific answers to these questions, you could be in big trouble.
What’s more, if you answered something like “we target everyone,” or “we cater to a wide range of people,” you’re in even bigger trouble, my friend…

Okay, I know what you’re thinking: “But what about Amazon, Tom? They target everyone in the entire world!”

Good Ol’ Jeff only began expanding after four years of hard work establishing a successful organization. Today — twenty-four years later — Amazon has earned the ability to target everyone.
