Leofinance: How To Raise The Numbers On Engagement

avatar

png_20220518_055151_0000.png



I was reading Asher's post about engagement which laid more emphasis on numbers depth and reach. Numbers translate to quantity so I think think this is dependent on the ability of a content to be trendy and translational. For example, a content on "how to save", is trendy and evergreen, it brings different narratives. There's the difference in nationalities, currencies, mentality, and even means of income. Plus, "saving" is practically what everyone can relate to, it's a financial practice that tends to improve the lives of people and due to this, there will be questions, when anyone practically provides a hack on different unique ways to successfully do it.


Value & Numbers

This is to say that before numbers can go up, an author or the content itself has to be beneficial, this way, people who are engaging with these contents wouldn't even find engagement to be much of an effort, because they're in it to earn or to learn, either way, we cannot refute the fact that a content itself has to be incentivizing and this is where the value comes from. So a content's ability to do great figures can be dependent on how differently it impacts people who relate to it.

This is to say that the value must flow from the author to the engagers. Some of these benefits come in form of traction, vote, or more knowledge, when a content can at least Offer one of these, then it's easy to get multiple figures in engagement.


The Aspect In Incentivization

For example, engagement has increased because @khaleelkazi is offering incentives, since we think engaging because of this isn't organic, we must understand that engagement is purely for incentivization, it now depends on what an engager is looking for and what the author is offering. A person who gained knowledge and traction has been incentivized and it has symbiotically given essence to the work of a creator it's a win-win. So mostly, with engagement, there's a catch and this is different with authors and users


Engagement Requires skills

......Hence, it's the one reason people tend to shy away from it or end up doing not much of a good job with it. I've seen comments that are quite repetitive rather than additional. Repetitive engagement shuts the door to external exploration. But when engagement becomes additional, it means it brings different perspectives to the purpose of a content, this depends on the consumption of a content and how people different processes differently which determines feedback. This requires more understanding and willingness, which is a problem when people are in a hurry to drop a post or drop a comment.

We cannot have a post with 100 comments unless there are interactive tendencies amongst the engagers and the author. However, 20 to 50 comments on a post are decent, and even most of the time, these comments are stylishly deviating from the original purpose, which adds depth to the content, in the process, people learn, have fun and announce themselves. This is how content from users like @taskmaster4450's experiences a massive engagement level. The ability of an engager increases the chances of a content deviating from it's original purpose to a different purpose, thereby adding richness and spice. So the bottom line is that engagement requires communicative and interactive skills, and the ability to differently translate a content which requires the efforts of the creator and the consumer.


SEO: An Inclination

I don't think everyone can be a great SEO expert. But I understand that the depth or richness of quality engagement can even increase the total value of the content itself. However, I do believe that everyone should see SEO as an inclination even if they might end up not writing any. I generally think that effort is important. For one to improve on their engagement or content, they have to be willing to put in different efforts to try a different approach. Engagement and contents are one way for new users to announce themselves, the other way is to be a big investor, it's important to define one's roles on the Blockchain and follow them thoroughly.


How To Do Better

For people to be better, they have to understand the importance of engagement for their growth and the growth of the ecosystem. I recently told a person that the reason they cannot create is that their inability to engage narrows their creative instinct rather than broadens them. I think we can continue overemphasizing the fact that authors need to respond to comments on their posts, to validate the users behind these comments. If an author cannot translate their supposed "quality content" in their ability to relate with their changers, then slowly the comments might reduce. For many big authors, we know it's about authoring the next big things and cashing out, but then, creating an interactive comment section is always a win-win.

Well said

It doesn't end with creating contents, we must engage and not just with low efforts comments or replying back with an end to the flow... I always like to meet with an interactive commenter, it's more fun and encouraging to do more.

I also think the content creators have a role to play in getting more interactive session under their contents. I've experienced what it feels like to have so many responses under my content, you feel like you made a content of the century 😅 and you would want to do more.

Well, engagement is for everyone who wants to grow... A lot knows that already, just the determination left to take on and make it a point of duty.

Well yeah, that's why I laid emphasis on the fact that it a symbiotic process. I myself have come to understand we're both creators and engagers... Meaning that our roles are not static. Everyone has a role to play in creating what we want to have as the best form of content and engagement. It's a communicative process that we continuously grow as time takes it's toll. Some people eventually miss the essence, but they eventually go on to learn. I guess it's all about time.

This I will not disagree, engaging invariably helps in content creating as well. Your level of creativity simply broadens, in a few occasion I have created a content just from few words from a comment section because I spotted I can elaborate on the comment.

Not easy engaging though, some comments needs deliberating before writing, I encounter that every now and then even yesterday I had to give it some thought before responding to Task on a comment section as well engage on the top further.

At the end of the day, there's a lot to learn from engaging, over time I might be gravitating towards being a consumer than content creating but that's not any time soon.

There are times I can't even create any contents what I do is to take the time and consume. What I have come to learn is that there are different ways through which we can relate to a particular content. This is many of us gets our inspiration. I have seen some people who thinks engagements requires no skill but because value, substance and quality, I've come to realize that we actually do need skills.
Overall it's always a win-win. As no one wgo actively consumes contents losses on any front. It feels less rewarding but it's a non-monetary aspect of the chain that can help people go a long way.

That look more like a spam. If we ain't participate in healthy engagement, we are not actually adding value.

Hahaha well, I agree, the truth is that the aim of repetitive comment due the the lack of effort invested to duly enjoy a content rather than seeing the need to comment.

Thanks for such review!
Beyond that, I think that quality content is the best basis to start from, because everything can help hitting audience, but only good content will allow to keep it and increase it

"Quality" these days can be a mirage as it relates to differently people in unique ways.

I see your point.
By saying "quality" I mean the reason why people read articles: to learn something or to gather more opinions on a topic. That's what I call quality and that's what I am trying to give with my contents.
That's "quality" for me

Yeah I understand your point too, quality content should be tailored to adding value at least to the best of understanding.

I think it's easy to engage as long as you think about it a little bit but I do agree that sometimes I get lazy and try to move on to the next thing. The biggest thing people need to commit to is time and I am finding that hard to make these days as work keeps me busy.

A lot of people don't find it easy unless they find it enjoyable. It comes naturally to you I guess, but consuming contents and leaving a feedback is one of the activities on the Hive Blockchain that many finds to be difficult and rather stressful.

Well said Bro

It takes effort, consistency and commitment over a long period of time to grow, and without it, it cannot happen by itself (growth)

Of course, it will help if your content is somehow interesting or unique, it will attract attention and you yourself will be excited to get more views on your content. not just committed, Uniqueness it's all the criteria that drive growth.

Sometimes, it might not be easy, but it can, especially when the person isn´t fixed to other things offline. I love engagement and interactive moments in the comment section too because it builds one up to create something from it, at least I have been able to dwell much in a post of some interesting words from a comment. It´s great if one can keep engaging well and replying to comments on their posts as a reply sometimes and when you aren´t available, it´s no problem.

But one must not ignore the fact that engagement is important to build yourself and your account and also to have more people coming by to your posts.

Your engagements are awesome, concise and really great and sincerely it shows how much of time you spend to read a Post. But the truth is people can cut corners, the main aim of engagement is to give one's unique feedback on a post and the truth is, there's no option but to take that time.
You've already stated the importance of engagement and honestly not everyone still understands how it's important to growth.

Yes, true engagement comes from giving a post the attention to fully understand what is being passed across so you won't have to make irrelevant comments.
Thank you 😊

I don't know why I find this funny sha.
But I washed my hands commot for people wey dey try to cut through corners.

I was so devastated once that happened on my article and I had to address the matter. I mean we don't even force people to engage here so why come into someone's comment box and leave a flash of what doesn't even have anything to do with the content or even show you took the pains of reading it sef.
🤣🤣😂😅

I was just passing though with my troubles.🤣🤣🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️

I greet you @princessbusayo by the way.

I've seen comments that are quite repetitive rather than additional.

For some unknown reasons I think some people also try to manage time by doing this. And it's probably because they only read a few contents in a post rather than reading all of it to get a better understanding about the post.

I understand the purpose of saving time but the truth is that, when one is making comments, they should do so to make an impact and create an impression, when engagement is enjoyed, it becomes effortless

This is true though. But for some reason, it appears that laziness just makes people do this casually.

I believe we all engage for different reason and for different motives. Sometimes what makes some people so successful in engagement is because they are doing it for the good reason.

Hahaha you're right, however I think the best motive is to actually find traction. Through finding traction, other enablements would follow. I can say I got through this place due to the right engagement.

Engagement takes skill

No truer words have been spoken. Not everyone has the ability to engage on a post and the truth is, it's not every post you should engage on. I for one, have very little knowledge about cryptocurrency and market trends... I am sitting to read posts on these things to gain enough knowledge to make a meaningful comment that could at least be beneficial.

Most times all I do is ask questions in those posts and I get answers. But when it comes to medicine, I am familiar with the terrain and it is easy for me to give meaningful and valuable comments in my engagement.

Thank you for this @josediccus.

You're a great engager yourself. I definitely think engagement takes skills, one of those skills are interpretative skills which is the ability of a writer to interpret what an author has written and duly contribute their own quota.
Just like you I have little knowledge of crypto but due to how voracious I read, I have come to actually understand a lot.
Personal finance became my niche because this community was my muse.

It's quite liberating to see how hive not only provides a means to learn and be educated in a lot of things, but to have fun and earn while doing it. Nowhere else is this a reality.
