Sharing More Than Recipes: How to Connect with the Audience
Your recipe is part of your legacy, and if you are sharing it with the world, then that sends the message that you trust them. However, that message may not always be evident in your writing. There are ways to connect with the audience and build a relationship with your readers.
A more approachable profile will get more likes and comments on your recipes and get people to come back to try one of your dishes.
Get to Know Them
Suppose you want to build a connection with someone, then you have to find out more about them. It is not as easy as it sounds when we are talking about readers. However, the comments section is a great place to start. Those who enjoy your recipes will most likely share their experiences with you. Using that information, you can develop personas about the demographics that mostly make up your audience. Once you know who you are talking to, it can be easier to relate to them personally.
Answer Their Questions
Everyone likes to be seen and heard, even readers. On Recipe Fund, the comments section is one way to interact with other chefs. Make sure you go through the comments and answer any questions the readers have asked. They might want to know more about the method or need your advice on how to get the best results. When you take out a few minutes to answer their queries, the audience will know that you care about them.
Speak the Common Language
Choose each word carefully whenever you publish something on your profile. Fancy words and flowery phrases might look good in a book, but they tend to alienate the audience who wants a good recipe. When you are trying to explain something, use context and examples to get your point across. Your useful tricks might go unappreciated if the readers fail to understand them. Engage the audience by directly talking to them, using second-person pronouns such as "you" and "your."
Rise to the Occasion
Another way to get personal with the audience is to use the upcoming holiday to share your family's traditions. You can share recipes that are a big hit with your family and friends during holiday parties and dinners. Inspire the audience to celebrate and spread joy using your methods. That is not just a way to jump on the trend but also to establish the spirit of sharing. Getting more traffic on your profile by posting relevant recipes is a bonus.
