Engaging consumers can be done through a variety of approaches.
Marketing engagement is based on the identification of consumer demographics being actively engaged and who out of these demographics are buying. Consumer engagement is also measured by interaction and influence. Therefore, engagement is more than just promoting a brand. Rather, marketing engagement goes a step further by proactively tracking content and embedding links to emails and videos so that the number of those who have actually clicked to read or clicked to watch a company’s product or service ad can be measured accurately.
The influence of marketing engagement involves measuring the level of action taken as a result of the communications a company delivers. A highly influential marketing engagement affects more than just the buying consumer, it also affects the people the buying consumer shared their shopping experience with via social networks. In this way, a company can measure the impact of their interaction and influence on consumers to see if their engagement strategies need improvement.
Engaging consumers at the right time carries many advantages, since timing plays an important role in motivating user loyalty of the company’s brand. Building a long lasting relationship with the consumer can be done by online and in person experience events, which can build a consumer’s trust in a company and motivate them to eventually make a purchase.
The success of a marketing strategy involves knowing which groups are the best to target and which can be obtained by means of consumer data. This action by a company defines marketing activation. To optimize marketing activation, a company will typically implement management tools and techniques to manage their relationship with consumers. It is especially helpful for a company to adapt to evolving consumer preferences and mindsets to increase their profits and reach their strategic goals. Marketing activation like marketing engagement, needs to fulfill a purpose if a company aims to reach a diverse demographic, which focuses more on the common needs of diverse consumers rather than their cultural habits. Effective marketing activation includes “video-based measurement which provides insight into shopper engagement and behavior relative to exact marketing activation and CRM data and models that are used to improve the effectiveness of marketing activation. Several benefits come from consumer activation:
- Feedback from consumers on what to change or improve as they interact with a company.
- Add a fresh perspective to a brand to reach younger generations.
- It reinforces the brand’s positioning and reinforces its prominence in the consumer’s mind.
- It stands out from traditional advertising.
It’s essential to understand the importance of a seamless, integrative approach to marketing activation; rather than delivering it in single tactical executions; this ensures that any activation implemented is memorable and goes beyond the temporary rush the consumer may feel when first being introduced to a company’s brand.
