You need to figure out what your aim is with the content you create. It’s nothing fancy, you just need to know what you want the audience to gain from your content. It could be to make them laugh; this is usually the end goal for skits and memes. It could be to educate them; we have loads of content creators sharing their knowledge on Youtube, LinkedIn, and Allcreate.

Every content creator has what they want their content to produce; be it engagements, endorsement, money, or friends, it’s somewhere in your head. One thing that all these possible rewards have in common is that they are all produced by whoever is the audience of your content. Only the right audience will give you the right reward, so the best thing to do when starting your content creation journey is to establish your target audience.
The target audience is the part of the audience that you place the focus of the creation of your content. They are chosen after proper research, using well-laid-out criteria. These groups of people will help shape your content creation. You will use the concepts they like in the way they prefer them. It makes your content creation easier and increases your chances of getting engagement from these people you have satisfied.
