Brand Engagement Jonathan Poland

Brand engagement refers to the interaction between a customer and a brand, and can be used as a way to measure the effectiveness of a brand’s products, services, environments, and communications. The definition of a “valuable interaction” may vary from one organization to another, and some companies may view brand engagement as a key driver of revenue while others may view it as a less important metric compared to financial metrics such as customer lifetime value. The following are common types of brand engagement.
