How to get your target market to trust you

Building a relationship with your target market takes time. First, you usually need to develop a mutual trust and affinity with someone. Believe it or not, you can achieve this with your content if you focus on doing it.

In order to have a good relationship with someone, both of you need to be interested in the same thing, show interest and concern for the other, and coordinate with each other during communication. That seems hard to do with content, but you can do it if you have your goals clear in your mind while creating the content.

When establishing a relationship with content, you’ll want to consider a few factors such as:

How your content looks

Appearances do matter when it comes to your content and how it looks to your audience. It has to be easy to access, easy to read (or listen to), and easy to get the point across.

Make your content as personal as possible

Personalize your content as much as you can. For example, in a blog post, say “you” even though your English teacher told you not to. He should talk to them through his content as if he knows them, and would be a good friend just the same.

Make sure your content is culturally appropriate

One of the fastest ways to damage your relationship with your audience, who are likely to come from diverse backgrounds even though they have the same interest, is to say something culturally insensitive.

listen to your audience

Your audience will let you know how to talk to them. They will tell you what problems they have. They will even tell you how they want their problems solved and how much they can pay for it. But you must listen.

Let them share experiences with you

Take them on a “behind the scenes” trip. You can do this with a video or just by writing a blog post outlining what you do in a day behind the scenes to do all the great things for them that you do.

show empathy

Being able to put yourself in someone else’s shoes, even if you’ve never experienced that before, is called empathy. Show empathy through your customer service interactions and social media discussions.

Be a mirror to your audience

Use the language they use, choose the words they would choose, and talk about the things they want to know. Everything stems from them and ends with them. It’s not about you; never was

Be accessible

Don’t make it difficult for your audience to talk to you. They should be able to easily email you or use your contact form without much searching. Let them hit “reply” on an email and be open to contact.
