Engagement is the Number 1 Goal and Metric for Marketers

What’s the #1 goal and metric for social media marketing programs and campaigns? While sales and leads are still important, most marketers’  #1 goal for  social media marketing programs and campaigns is “engagement,” according to a 2013 survey of US marketing professionals by Pivot Conference, which hosts leading social business events. Note that increasing sales is ranked fifth by marketers in this survey.

So how do marketers measure “engagement?”

1.       How many consumers shared this ad, video, story, or infographic., etc.

2.       How many posted a positive comment about this…

3.       How many liked it
