Broadcast Sellers and Managers: Why “Engagement” is the Social Media Metric That Matters First!

Presented by Lori Lewis, President of Lori Lewis Media and LBS Social Media Expert

“Engagement is the tell-tale sign from the audience that your content is accomplishing two main goals: 1) Capturing Attention & 2) Converting It Into Action. But let’s dig deeper into why engagement is the metric that matters.” – Lori

LEVERAGE: Engagement rates need to be monitored because healthy engagement is how we influence fans to invest in us with their time & actions. This is way more important than vanity metrics (the number of fans or reach).
LONGEVITY: The longer someone spends engaging with your content (viewing, reading, captions, commenting, etc…), that engagement extends the life of the content, opening opportunities to be seen by more.
LOST: Without engagement – we’re like a ghost ship – floating around the social space; no one manning the ship, no one caring about our ship. So, don’t just give engaging content – be responsive and interact with the community too.
