For anyone out there aspiring to thrive in the digital realm by offering a product or service, a very high value has been put on social media engagement. This is an essential metric for gauging the overall performance of social media campaigns. How many times it was displayed or had potential “eyeballs” on it is how an impression relates to a digital post, web page, or advertisement. Some of the grey areas arise when there is interaction from bots and duplicate views, but it has remained a useful way to measure the effectiveness of campaigns or spots.
The Leveling Up Of Those Who Lurk:
Many experts believe that the number of people who hang out without doing much else is rising, while those who are actually engaging are headed in the opposite direction. There is engagement going on and discussions about what people prefer, but many peers and colleagues are choosing text and more private forums to share their thoughts. It is not just the fear of “being seen” in public that is shaping this behavior, and it is not even always a conscious decision, but many are remaining in the shadows for quite some time without just firing out their opinions rapidly (or even clicking) for everyone to see.
In broad context, an impression is equal to each occurrence of a page, ad, or piece of content being located, and then loaded. With the “Story” feature on social media, there is not always a measurable form of engagement happening, but it does not mean that your content is not being consumed and thought about. We have devised many different ways to assure that your post experiences maximum impressions and engagement and focus on your brand’s present and future success.
Many companies base their engagement scores with a heavy influence on the “like”. Even the most successful brands out there are now experiencing fewer comments, and more likes. One of the most profitable digital marketing entities in the nation ranks a share as ten points, a comment as 5 points, and a like as only 1 point, making many of us experts re-think how important a like actually is. From our expert standpoint here at Farfetched studios, it seems that engagement has been a bit overvalued over the past few years, but we still heavily weigh it into context when strategizing for social media.

We have placed a high priority on impressions in 2021, and realize that some other agencies may not even be tracking them at all. This is one of the junctions in digital marketing history that requires a content scoring system, and we are always shifting our train of thought with trends. As the world opens back up with a bit more hesitancy, it is still of grave importance to factor into your campaign the number of users that have the benefit of working from home, and know that social is absolutely where the target markets are spending their time.
