Retail investors make up to 76% of your trading volume.

Picture this: you're throwing a party, a big one, with all your friends. The crowd's buzzing, drinks are flowing, the room's pulsating with energy. Now, let's say that 76% of those friends are dance floor fanatics, their gyrations and grooves set the rhythm for the night. But you, the party host, barely interact with them. What sort of party would that be? Likely, not the one you'd hoped for.

The scenario might seem a touch frivolous, but when it comes to engaging with retail investors, it's not far off. Retail investors - the enthusiastic movers and shakers of your party - can make up to 76% of a company's trading volume. That's a whopping chunk of influence, enough to give your share price a hefty nudge.

But here's the rub: traditional Investor Relations (IR) often misses the beat when it comes to communicating with this crowd. An incredible 53% of investor emails to companies are left unanswered. It's as if the host decided to ignore those setting the tempo of the party.

And why is this the case? Many companies are stuck behind the DJ booth, spinning records for a crowd they barely understand. Traditional IR is often skewed towards institutional investors, leaving the needs of the retail investor by the wayside. The financial jargon and complexity often found in IR communications may be suited to the professionals, but it leaves the retail investor feeling out of step.

This lack of communication creates a disconnection between retail investor engagement and its influence on share price. It's a mismatch that threatens to kill the vibe of your party, turning the joyous hustle and bustle into a tepid shuffling of feet.

So how do we turn this around? How do we get the party jumping again? The first step is understanding the motivations and interests of retail investors. They're not here for the financial minutiae, but for the company's story and potential. They're often emotionally invested in the companies they back and appreciate straightforward communication that helps them understand the company's journey.
