In the context of a marketing campaign, is it well expressed what is in black in the following sentence: "The range of activity should be limited in order to mostly hit the target"? Meaning to make the message reach the potential customers as most as possible.

Thank You

I am not a teacher.

It is clear what you want to say but "mostly" isn't the adverb you're looking for. What I think you mean by "mostly" is "as much as possible". In fact, at the end of your post you say "…as most as possible" which shows the same mistaken use of the word "most".

Why not try "accurately" or "successfully" instead of "mostly"?

I don't have a problem with "mostly." Most hit the target. Some don't.
