Small Business Marketing Strategy Question: Who Do You Sell To?

Who Do You Sell To? Be Specific

This is the same question as “Who is your ideal customer?“, but reworded for a slightly different perspective. Ideal is a rather abstract concept. To make it more concrete think of who does (or is most likely to) give you money in exchange for your goods and services.
