Reading Time: 3 minutes

Have you ever tried to interact with your favorite brand, only to hear nothing back? This is the reason community management exists! Whether you do it yourself or hire someone to do it for you, engaging with your audience is critical to gaining a positive reputation, boosting sales, and more.

Key Takeaways:

  1. What community management and audience engagement are,
  2. How to initiate the engagement process, and
  3. How to increase conversion rates through incentives.

📚 The Basics of Engagement and Management

Chances are you have done engagement yourself, but you didn’t even realize it! Community management is the same as audience engagement, and it can be roughly defined as ‘interacting with your active audience through comments, messages, replies, and more.’ Community management is incredibly important to your profiles and business as it shows consumers you can be trusted, you care, have quality work, and more. If you asked a store clerk a question, and they didn’t respond, would you even end up buying from that store?

📤 Start the Conversation

It’s important to realize that only a small percentage of your audience will naturally engage without being prompted to. Think about it, nearly all content you see never has over a few thousand comments or replies – no matter how many millions of views it has. Start by taking simple steps like asking your audience to comment, and leaving your own comment at the top of the section. Ask a prompting question to make your audience feel like they are heard! Examples: “Have you used this product before? What did you think?” or, “Tell me your 3 favorite ______, GO!” Make sure whenever possible that your comments are pinned and liked, as this will get a higher chance for your audience to see it.

🏆 Reward your Community

Community management is important in and of itself, but you want to leverage the benefits to their maximum potential. The easiest and most surefire way to increase your conversion with management is to offer incentives to active audience members. When engaging, attach sales offers and direct links to the end of your replies. In doing so, you will be removing any barriers to the customer from buying.📄 In Conclusion

Community management is key to the success of your social media accounts and ultimately your business. It provides a way for consumers to get in touch with you, and trust that what you have to offer is high quality and readily available. Engagement provides additional conversion opportunities with the offer of coupons, direct links, and sales!
