Engage your audience, hold their attention
The internet offers incredible opportunities to interact with your audience – customers and potential customers – on many different levels. Online, “engagement” means making contact on a truly one-to-one basis - starting the dialog, creating lasting relationships, encouraging conversions.
For most marketers, this represents a serious mind-shift from the more traditional, quarterly driven sales campaigns to community driven conversations. The metrics are different as the ROI of socially inspired engagement can rarely be measured directly.
But the biggest challenge is to coordinate messages and conversations across these diverse platforms – from the social-media trinity of Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, to your website, landing pages, email and ad campaigns, plus offline initiatives. Your content must be both timely and consistent, and your website – your messaging “headquarters” – provides the platform needed to create and measure the conversions that are essential to your success.
