Online AudienceMore and more people are turning to the Internet to shop, get information and find a particular place. Brands must adapt to this new normal to reach a wider audience, maintain their market share and maximise their profits. One of the ways to do so is to connect with people. There are different ways to do this and knowing them gives you a competitive advantage.

Target Consumer Behavior

Online marketing experts at Verbatim Consulting note that targeting customers through paid advertising is an efficient way to reach your audience. Social media websites such as Facebook has made it easier for brands to find who is likely to share their content or buy their products. There are now features that filter people who see your sponsored posts based on gender, age, interests and other parameters. This lowers your cost in trying to convince a completely new visitor who has never heard of your business or isn’t interested in your niche.

Blog About Interesting Topics

You want people to know who you are as a brand and the products or services you offer. However, constantly rattling on about how good your company is, how beneficial your offerings are or how many discounts you provide may come off as hard selling. This approach may turn off potential customers; change your strategy by publishing content that may pique the interest of your audience. Start a blog and write about topics related to your niche but aren’t about you. Discuss pertinent articles using different forms of content such as infographics, videos, podcasts and others that people might like.

Leverage Customer Testimonials

Publishing testimonials on your websites legitimise your brand and make you authentic in the eyes of your audience. People would rather hear about the first-hand experience of others who used your products or services. This is similar to using word-of-mouth advertising, which is a potent form of marketing and reaching out.

These are only a handful of ways to connect with your online audience; doing so enables you to build a strong brand that people see as authentic and can relate to.
