Engagement Science: Making the Most of Your Social Media Strategy (Infographic)

Social engagement is both a science and an art. I analyzed data from over 100 companies of all sizes to determine the best ways to maximize social engagement. The findings are telling; for instance: did you know that posting to three or more channels increases engagement by over 40%? Or that posts on Saturday received more engagement than any other day of the week?

Check out the infographic below for more insight into the science of engagement, and pick up my book Stand Out Social Marketing: How to Rise Above the Noise, Differentiate Your Brand, and Build an Outstanding Online Presence for a complete guide to maximizing your social media returns.

This is a great and informative infographic. In terms of placement and channels, there's a way to bring multiple channels into one place- via social media aggregator (I personally prefer Postano). This way, you can bring it back to a business website, embed the Postano containing all of your social media channels in a visually engaging format and engaging audiences that either aren't on social or aren't following you on social. This way, you're gaining more mileage from your social media strategy and content.
