Engagement vs. Sales on Social Media – Do You Need Both?

by | Sep 7, 2021 | Marketing, Podcast

“Adding an engagement strategy can easily quadruple your sales, compared to focusing on sales alone.”

Engagement is the big buzzword around social media, but do we need engagement if all we really want is sales?

You can probably get sales on social media without engagement, but it will cost you a LOT more time and/or money.

But when you combine engagement with sales, the results are exponential. In other words, if you take one part engagement and add it to one part sales, you’ll end up with 3-4 times as many sales as you would without any engagement.
