A lot of people are talking these days about sales and how to make more money.
It’s helpful, but only for short-term planning. More and more, we should move our attention to social engagement, to create content that appeals to our customers’ emotions and engages them in meaningful interactions which initiate genuine relationships. It’s not enough to create content, post, and then sit back and wonder why people aren’t buying our products or services.
It’s our job as marketers to move our actions from:
• AWARENESS >> ATTENTION >> ACTION
• AWARENESS >> AFFINITY >> ACTION
It takes time and courage to create meaningful relationships with our customers. But it’s the only way to succeed in a wold full of “look at me attitude.” Social engagement is becoming a required skill for every digital marketer.
Start with Facebook through the social engagement journey. Why? Because Facebook remains the most popular social media platform.
