How To Write for Your Target Readers: 4 Important Steps for Success

So you want to write for an engaged audience, gain new followers, and meet your writing goals, but you’re unsure how to go about it?

Fear not because you are now in the right place.

Whether you are a fiction or nonfiction author, whether you write blog posts, video scripts, emails, case studies—or anything else really—writing for your target readers makes a lot of sense no matter how small they may be in size or number.

New writers or those just starting their writing business or career sometimes make the mistake of trying to write for everybody. This is often because they want to write for a large number of people—all while becoming a successful writer or author overnight.

Unfortunately, writing for everyone doesn’t work because the content produced usually ends up being too generic to appeal to an appreciable number of people or attract and engage any specific group.

But, when you make it a habit to write for your target readers, you can:

  • Develop a strong connection with them
  • Attract more readers, followers, and subscribers
  • Convert readers to customers
  • Achieve your writing goals faster

Now, let’s look at four steps that can help you write for your target audience, no matter your niche, your genre, or the kind of content you are creating.

7 Solid Ideas To Make Your Writing More Conversational

Have you ever stopped reading something because it was boring? 

If you want to make sure your blog posts, emails, and other online content are highly engaging from start to finish, there is a unique writing style you need to know.

This style can help you connect with your readers on a friendlier, more personal, and informal level. You’ll be able to quickly grab their attention, and keep them reading until they get to the end no matter the length of your content.

So what is this style of writing?

It’s called conversational writing, and involves writing as if you are talking or having a nice chat with a friend.

According to irreverent marketer and copywriter Henneke Duistermaat, even though conversational writing feels as if you’re having a cozy chat in a café it doesn’t mean writing exactly like you talk. Instead, it’s a stronger, more concise, and better-structured style of writing.

The good news is that conversational writing can:

  • Make your readers feel recognized, valued and appreciated.
  • Help you develop a stronger relationship with your readers.
  • Make your writing easier to read and understand.
  • Get more people reading and sharing your content.
  • Help you build and maintain readers’ trust.
  • Boost your chances of converting readers to customers.

But it doesn’t end there.
