Think about who reads, watches and interacts with all your content. Lots of kinds of people, right? You likely have more than one audience type that you’d like to reach.
Consumers, investors, and partners, for example, may be your most important visitors, but consumers are most important. If the others went away, it might be difficult, but you could still potentially run the business.
Do Your Audience Types Rely on One Another?
But for some businesses, two of your audiences may rely on each other, and you simply would not be in business if you didn’t have both.
YouTube, for example, needs video producers just as much as it needs video watchers, and eBay needs sellers just as much as it needs buyers.
(If you have more than two relying on one another, you have your hands full!)
Balance Your Content Strategy to Serve Your Audience
Be sure your content strategy is solving for all of your audiences, in the order of importance. If you have two audiences that rely on each other, then your content strategy should equally address them both.
Keep checking up on yourself — or have someone else do that for you. Some of my clients have a “favorite” audience they like to focus on, and the other one suffers. And that’s like maintaining only the front half of your bicycle.
