We all know the sunken feeling of posting something to social and getting crickets in return. But if you’re a brand, especially in the B2B space, getting no engagement on your social media posts isn’t a sign that it’s just a bad joke. It’s a sign that you aren’t bringing value to your audience. And that means a missed opportunity to bring someone down the funnel.
In some ways, increasing social media engagement is much easier for B2C brands than B2B brands. They can post something funny or irreverent and suddenly it spreads around the internet. B2B brands by their very nature have a harder time getting those likes and shares. Their subject matter doesn’t lend itself as easily to jokes or posed shots of succulents. So what can you do to boost social media engagement? Start by thinking about what your audience values professionally.
