Tips for creators to How to improve your engagement results
Last month, The Influencer Marketing Hub published its analysis of the influencer marketing industry in 2020 (we have a summary on our blog). A recurring theme was the feeling of frustration at the drop in engagement rates as the number of followers grew.
As the study shows, true influence is not based on the number of followers, but on the ability to influence the behavior of an audience as well as generate engagement. Increasingly, the success of campaigns is based on real conversions and interactions with your posts. Based on those trends, we want to help improve engagement on your accounts.
How to measure your engagement
For starters, we want to define what engagement is. Engagement is the level of audience interaction with your content. It represents a stable and lasting bond with a specific audience. On social media, engagement is measured through your posts and the effect it has on your community.
To measure your engagement, take note of the following indicators: Followers, Likes, Comments, Actions, and Clicks. Also consider the use of popular hashtags and their content, the time of publication, and the quality of their images. This will help you get more people interested in your profile.
