Authorpreneurs 3 Tips Monetize Social Media Engagement by Lá Tanyha Boyd


What is Social Media Engagement?

Definition: Social media engagement measures the public shares, likes and comments for an online business’ social media efforts. … But return on investment for social media marketing efforts is difficult, and engagement is a blanket metric that doesn’t describe how many users end up purchasing. -Big Commerce

Measuring engagement-

According to Big Commerce-The three most popular social media sites today are FacebookInstagram and Twitter. Each platform has its own mechanisms for users to express appreciation for individual posts and posters, which are measured differently across each platform:

Twitter: Re-tweets and followers

Facebook: Shares, likes and followers

Instagram: Likes and followers

While shares and likes tell you about the popularity of a given post, follows indicate a higher level of investment, meaning users want to see more of your content on a regular basis. Follows are therefore a type of conversion, similar to getting a visitor to sign up for an e-mail list.

Posts can be shared for many reasons, however, not all of them good. Social media engagement is only as positive as the reputation it generates: going viral over a poorly thought-out tweet can cause a tsunami of bad publicity that proves to be unshakeable.

2) Get a professional and distinctive author photo: Use this image across all your social media profiles, on your site, at the end of your book (along with your author bio) and on your print materials.

3) Tell your author brand story: Write an author biography that succinctly defines your reason for being; keep it to two or three short but memorable paragraphs that will resonate with your readers.
