What does the “like” button tell us?
Another Monday Morning Digital Marketing Tip by
What are the engagement on your posts? Here’s a shocker for ya to start your Monday off. “Like” and “engagement” data you are looking at doesn’t tell the whole story when you look at your data on your posts on social posts, specifically business posts.
You want to know why?
Because every person that looked at your post doesn’t always hit the like button… and that’s not because they didn’t “like” it, they just didn’t click the button!
For most of 2020 now I’ve been posting pretty regular content that you are hopefully finding g valuable 😁 . Does that mean I get a like, an email, a text every time that I share something?
The key is doing good content frequently.
That will make a world of a difference and you’d be better growing your list than get more likes on a post. Your email list ensures that it will show up in an inbox, a post will not.
Check this out. The word on the street from an amazing podcast by someone that’s helped me a lot the last year, Vincent Pugliese, is that in order to get Seth Godin to be on your podcast, the only requirement is that you have done a podcast 100 times, that’s it. Now think why he does that. It’s because he believes that if you are willing to work consistent, he will show up because you put in the tough work of being consistent.
If you do that one thing, you will continue to grow your list because of your consistency.
The key to all of this is consistency with good content…
And I bet if you started making a list in your phone like I did of things to post about, you’d be surprised how much content you or your team could use.
P.S. One of my all time favorites in seeing if someone read an entire email was reading what my friend David Franzke put on a line at the bottom of an email. It said, “If you read the entire email hit me back and I’ll buy you a free cup of coffee.” So if you really want to know if people are looking and reading, put that offer out there in your post or in your email!
About Marcus RangelI've been working with small businesses owners to craft not only beautiful custom websites, but clear, clever and concise messages to reach their prospects since 2005.
I officially hung up my "corporate cleats" to be an entrepreneur and small business owner in the summer of 2020. IMC, which started as a side hustle early in the mornings before the sun was even up in 2017, is what led me down this path as a business owner myself. I focus on helping other business owners continually stay in front of people & prospects with digital marketing, create websites that get leads with great engagement, and produce video content that are meant for the digital era we're in.
When I'm not creating, you can find me hanging out with my incredible family on our front lawn or on my OneWheel around the big city of Topeka, KS.

What have I learned since writing that “day 1” email a year ago? Well, turns out quite a bit :), I felt it was worth of a top 10 list for a year. 1. Anna, my wife, is and will be my best friend and co-worker, ever.I always thought that we would be apart from 8-5 during most business days since my days of signing up for a full time job.

Did you know that most first impressions of your business aren’t from your website? Google your company and look to the right and you’ll see your Google listing starring right back at you. Did you know you or your team can choose exactly what the first picture that shows up on Google is? You can also tell how many people have viewed that photo and others you upload in the Google dashboard. I helped a…Read More
My wife Anna and I were sitting down with a couple of friends a few weeks ago and they asked me what I would recommend they do with their product that has taken off really well. I brought up building their list, and not just their followers on facebook and instagram. Their instant question to what I said was, “Isn’t email dead?” My question back to them was, what if I told you I’ve seen…Read More
