Interaction Between Audience and Content

In today’s social media world, how an audience interacts with a brand’s content can determine whether or not they buy from that brand. Engagement has been shown to have a correlation to purchase behavior. Having high engagement means people are involved in what you post, so your product or service must be good enough to keep their attention. The more engaged your audience becomes, the more likely they are to share what you post, creating positive feedback loops of interaction between you and your audience.
