50 Ways To Increase Social Media Engagement

social engagement

What is social media engagement and how can you increase it?

Social media engagement is the Holy Grail of marketing and seems to be just as elusive. It means different things to different people, but to most marketers, it means getting a response from their target audience.

It may come in the form of likes, shares, comments, tags, retweets, replies, mentions, follows, favourites, repins, clicks, upvotes, +1s, views, listens, or any number of forms that haven’t been invented yet.

But what engagement represents is a two-way dialogue between brands and customers. One of the reasons it matters so much is because it plays a crucial role in the calculation of Facebook’s Edgerank algorithm, and ultimately determines what percentage of your audience is viewing your content.

If you’re sharing content on social media networks, do your customers appreciate it and engage with it in one of the ways above? And how can you get more of it? That is what most marketers are asking today.

My primary rule of engagement is: If you want to increase engagement, be engaged. Like most people, social media users don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care. Start by giving before you expect to receive.

That said, there are lots of things you can do to increase engagement, starting now. In this article, I cover 50 ways to increase social media engagement.

Have you ever asked yourself how you can get more visits for old, evergreen content posted on your blog? I have! I mean, who has the time to dig deep into their blog archives all the time, to repost old articles and give them a new life on social media?

I knew that someone else had surely asked themselves the same question at some point and come up with a solution for it, hopefully using a WordPress plugin. This is true for mostly anything you can think of doing on your blog – someone has thought of it before and created a WordPress plugin for it.

So, I did some digging and found this awesome plugin called Revive Old Post (Formerly Tweet Old Post). It comes in both, a free and pro version, and allows you “to share about your old posts on Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin to get more hits for them and keep them alive.”

From the title of this article, I bet you thought that you wouldn’t have to lift a finger to do this, right? Well, you’ll see why that’s mostly true, because all you really have to do is to install and setup the plugin and it’ll do what it says, without you having to lift a finger afterward.

So here are the steps you need to follow to revive your old posts.
