Other social needs that are important for my target customer would be that they have an impressive long piece of work of art.
Customers would want to preserve and share the video and likely need help on social media.
The physical need of my customers is that they have a space in their home or business that they require to be painted to deliver a new look and aesthetic that matches their brand and lifestyle.
A separate physical need that a customer could have is for their new business for instance that they have built inside a new space, which they require to be showcased to others in a way of highlighting their establishment. Part of the way to show off that venue or building could be through videography.
The emotional need that one would try to fill would be for self satisfaction during their own establishment by searching for a way to make their business stick out.
People like to remember their lives and businesses for the long run. Part of a way to ensure that they would be able to remember moments throughout their business is through providing video content to help historicize the location and external services.
One of the biggest needs that my business will help solve is how to get people to feel convinced to come into the store/shop/office/bedroom, etc. What makes the space worthy to share online? Part of how to do such a thing would be to provide a colourful mural or some sort of graphics that align with the business needs.
Once a business has a mural to be able to entice people into the building, how they will be able to market that to their potential customers? Part of how that is possible is through video content, which I can provide to ensure that they effictively share news about the mural across their channels, which would help my own business as well.

– Being able to link your followers to an account
– Followed up by, gaining the chance of being featured on another account (potentially with a bigger following).
– “One of a kind” items bring attention, and connections. / It can be a signature.
People enjoy soft fabrics, apposed to scratchy. Quality of material is important, and noticed.
Form fitting clothes feel better, both physically and emotionally. (ARM LENGTHS, and PAW/POCKET sizes have been mentioned as a reoccurring issue, and made many customers turn away from purchases, or worse, regret them.)
People want to be warm, while having the attire lightweight and maintain the ability to breathe.
Stylish, and unique. Features/embellishments are important to people.
It is important to focus on what brings you confidence. Some customers mentioned they enjoy hiding in their hoods, and it provides security in these crowded social settings.
People love to represent their favourite animals or characters. It was brought up that one person loved the red panda, but never saw any hoods done for it. Another said they loved monsters, and wished there was someone who could capture an effect of feathers, or include things like horns.
(Some feelings expressed were: sweet, wild and cute.)
Form fitting came up again, as far as confidence straining. When you cannot fit your arms, or hands comfortably into something you feel a lot bigger than you most likely are. This has kept some customers from purchasing hoods online, in fear of regretting their purchase and feeling self pity or hate due to it. That is a very clear and important need that deserves to be filled.
People are interested to learn about the impacts of faux fur. Many were surprised to think they never considered how long it may take to break down, or what it was actually made of asides from “NOT ANIMALS”.
Following that, people also truly wanted to learn more about how fur trades help indigenous communities. This sparked the idea that I could list what animal gave it’s life for the community, and to make the hood, and what days. Similar to LUSH’s model of naming the employee who created your soaps, or lotions.
It has been expressed by some that it is important to communicate on a face-to-face basis. The taking of measurements could happen in the manner requested, but that would require filling out further needs.
Such as; The comfort of a professional workspace, a welcoming/unique aesthetic, the ability to change clothes in privacy before/after we take measurements if the attire they have on is too bulky, clothes for customers to change into, photo studio set up for photos upon pick-ups or on employed models.
Spreading education on different care methods, like the hand washing techniques immediate impact on the environment, or tips like avoiding submerging/drying your hoods to give your product the longest possible life, is important to people. Many have requested it, and thanked me generously for the tips.
People love to hear direction/advise that benefits both them, and the world around them.

People who changed diets for ethical reasons were reported to have stronger convictions to remaining vegan and were more likely to be vegetarian and vegan for longer. (Animal suffering, global warming)
Research from Technomic showed that 58% of consumers would rather buy plant-based foods. Only 49% would purchase vegetarian, and 43% would buy vegan. Consumers also think that vegan and vegetarian foods do not taste as good as plant-based ones.
Consumers seem to have negative connotations for the vegan and vegetarian terms. They may associate the words with restricted, bland diets that are boring. They may also view them as fad diets that are difficult to follow and will leave them hungry at the end of the meal.

There is an overwhelming amount of information available to people who wish to get cosmetic surgery. This makes it very difficult for people to decide which surgeon is the best choice for them as there are many factors to consider (budget, geographic location, etc.)
Cosmetic surgery can improve a person’s appearance, self-esteem and self-confidence.
There are many people who previously had surgery and have had complications and now require revision surgery. It is even more difficult to choose a surgeon to do revision work than it is to choose the initial surgeon as there are higher risks involved.

As mentioned earlier, cosmetic surgery can improve a person’s confidence and self-esteem.

A lot of clients issues stem from lack of a social support system. Having someone that they can ask questions to when they are struggling, or reach out to when they are hitting a road block.
Having a second person who has similar background and experience will allow customers to fill a need for empathy as returning to health can be incredible difficult both physically and emotionally. Having someone who has been through similar situations can help people break down embarrassment barriers and make real progress.
My clients have mobility issues, being in their home will allow them to avoid things like getting to the gym, transportation. The flexibility of one-to-one in-home or zoom options would allow it to work for the individual.
Clients need a physical plan they can be held accountable too. Having physical calendars, dates, paperwork help solidify the progress that is being made and show the client they are doing well and keeping on track.
Clients need to feel safe, I am a stranger going into their home.

Clients need the ability to access information to learn what they need to do for better health. Many people I interviewed and have talked to have stated that there is so much information out there that they do not know where to start. Finding a way to communicate the information in a small palatable but helpful way is the key.

Beautiful things – to make their homes and lives more attractive to themselves
Acceptance – to feel their self is safe and held by others

– the instant fix
–> people of all ages (especially older people) desire for instant gratification in terms of their appearance, products that allow for their customers to see the immediate improvement in regards to their skincare concerns often fall into this category and thus makes businesses more successful when they are able to have a product that is efffective and maximizes results in a minimal amount of time.
– the doll look
–> a lot of women appeal to this look by using heavy makeup or surgeries to have a more porcelain-like, smooth and flawless appearance
–> as most ways of achieving “the doll look” are expensive, many skincare and beauty businesses have been taking in this trend while formulating products but aspire to be natural looking
–> many people have been very attentive to how their products are formulated and whether it is ethically sourced, Elle’s Cosmetics and Beauty is transparent with where our products are sourced and we use “all earth” skincare meaning it is natural, clean, and green, we try to minimize packaging (with the exception of shipment/polymailers) but most of our products come in glass containers or fall under our naked products
– active communication with customers
– for most online businesses, I’ve noticed that the most frequent complaint is poor communication or the lack of communication
– I reply very quickly and I also leave my phone number attached to my instagram business page so people can give me a call if there are any concerns/questions
belonging to community
– to nourish skin with organic non-harmful ingredients
– to feel like they are making a difference in the world
