Knowing and reaching your target audience is critical to the success of your digital marketing strategy. We have discussed it specifically when considering which social media platform is best for your business but reaching your target audience is essential for paid ads, email marketing, SEO, and more! Why? Because identifying your target audience is vital so that your content, emails, and ads reach the right people and in turn create revenue for your business.
Define Your Target Audience
Having a clear idea about who your audience is as well as what they want, need, and enjoy is the first step. An effective way to do this is to create a buyer/customer persona to help you identify attributes such as age, gender, location, job, education, personality traits, interests, and hobbies. Your persona should include relevant information to your specific brand. Once you have a defined target audience, it informs the rest of your marketing strategy.
Create Useful Content
Useful content that is creative and consistent keeps people interested and engaged with your company. Content includes social media posts and stories, email marketing, blogs, and paid ads. When your content offers useful information, helpful tips, or fun resources this builds brand loyalty and encourages people to organically share about your brand on their own.
Consider Influencer Marketing
More and more businesses are using influencer marketing. When you target potential influencers for your brand, you are considering people that match your target audience. This is excellent because the influencer(s) will share about your business and reach even more people that fit most, if not all, of the qualities for your buyer/customer persona.
