Social Media Engagement is Not a Strategy

Not only Social meida marketers are keen to drive engagement but it may not necessarily be a viable strategy. In fact, it comes at a cost.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, July 10, 2014 1:53 PM

Mark Schaefer has a great point: we often confuse the means with the end.


In a blog post that I wrote a couple weeks ago, I explained why I thought social media publishing was dead - as we know it. One of these points was that the impact of publishing on social media for our goals is the combination of volume, quality and engagement. As Mark explains, engagement is only one variable in that equation.


So how can you convert your social media activity to make it count towards your goals? 


One of the important basic first step you can take is to make sure you publish through a content hub that you can make your own and from where you can convert visitors: to subscribe to your content, to reshare your previously published content or to sign up for whatever pre-sales activity makes sense in your business.
