Total SEO Services’ 5 strategies for engaging with your Target Audience
Step 1: Know Your Target Audience
It is absolutely integral that you know your target audience. You need to hone in on your target market through data analysis, observation and consulting consumers in order to gain crucial information. You need to know: what they want, what they are searching for online, where they are searching (on Google or on social media) and how can you tailor your content to appeal to them.
If you discover these details you can engage with your target audience more effectively as you will be giving them content that is tailored to them.
Step 2: Quality & Fresh Up To Date Content Only
Create and post quality and most importantly fresh content frequently and consistently. This will help search engines bump you up the top of the results page as SEO loves new content.
Therefore, if you are higher up on the SERPs (search engine results pages) your audience is more likely to see your content and invest in your brand.
Step 3: Make sure Your Brand and Content stands out and is Distinct
The internet is so saturated with content that you need to make your brand stand out. A really effective way to do this is to create visual, engaging content. Make sure that your content includes images, videos, gif’s, short snappy sentences, paragraphs broken up by subtitles.
Digital audiences often skim read online content, therefore, you must ensure that your content is accessible and readable as well a visually enticing to make it more likely that your target audience will read your content and visit your brand again. This will reduce your bounce rates.
Step 4: Invest in SEO Optimisations
Quality, visual content is worth nothing if your target audience doesn’t see it. You need to make your brand trustworthy, legitimate and well-known. The best way to do this is to be at the top of search engine results pages, so that your target audience is more likely to click onto your businesses website. You can achieve this through SEO.
You can improve your SEO by concentrating on enhancing your content, your titles through the prioritisation of keywords and phrases, installing structured data, yielding more rich snippets and through the use of outreach.

Step 5: Develop a Social Media Strategy
Another way to reach your target audience is to implement a social media strategy. Branch your brand out onto different social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and LinkedIn.
As Statista reports, there are more than three billion active social media users worldwide, its therefore crucial to take advantage of social media in order to reach your target market. You can analyse your target audience and determine what social media platform they are likely to use the most and post your content, tailored for the platform in order to reach your target audience.
Then link all of these platforms together through hyperlinks on your website in order to create a pyramid of content and outreach.
You can then use these platforms to engage with your audience. This helps you to understand their opinions, needs and wishes in regards to content and business so you can further tailor your content and give your target audience what they want.
You can achieve this as most social mediums let you set up polls, surveys and questionnaires to gather feedback from your followers.
Design and Build Your Web Presences for Mobiles First
Finally, ensure also that your website and content is optimised for mobile users as this is how over half of consumers now browse the internet on a portable device. Statista found that in 2018, 52 percent of website traffic worldwide was generated through mobile phones.
So if you aren’t optimising your content for mobile use, you’re missing out on half of your potential traffic and customers.
Your content needs to be accessible and readable in order to engage your target audience. Moreover, Google prioritises sites that use mobile-first indexing, meaning that their site is optimised across all devices, especially mobile, so to be higher up the SERP your website must be optimised for mobile use.
