  • From Lithium article series on measuring fan engagement. So on average, only 3.45% of your fans are actively engaging (i.e. posting). This is slightly less than what the 90-9-1 rule would have predicted, but the distribution definitely covers the expected 10% active fans with a wide margin. What percentage have a comment? The median level for the fraction of interactive posts is about 66.8%. Most fans post only once and are unique. 90.4% of the active fans post only once in a thread and never return to that conversation again.

  • 4. Practicing Engagement
  • Engage through personal touches
    • Send personal messages through FB to fans that post and thank them
    • Post messages from your organization on their Facebook Pages
    • Create groups
    • Don’t be afraid to become FB friends with some of your best fans
    • Always be commenting – answer every one
  • Research: engaging through posts
    http://www.emarketer.com/Article.aspx?R=1008328
  • Research: engaging through posts
    Post a question and ask for a response. It works!
    Fans are happier engaging in contests with the words “winning” and “events” than the words “contest” or “promotion.”
    Asking a question at the end of a post drives engagement
    “Where,” “when,” “would,” and “should” drive the highest engagement rates. Avoid asking “why” questions

  • ROE of FB post frequency
  • 5. Measuring engagement and ROE
  • Industry benchmarks for perspective
    Only about 30% of the active fans re-engage with the fan page more than once (i.e. through posting).
    70% of the active fans will post only once and never re-engage the fan page again!
    Most people engage through the Newsfeed.

    The metric tied to time and investment spent participating or interacting with other social media users, and in turn, what transpired that's worthy of measurement*
