The best metric for the effectiveness and success of your marketing is the increase in human interaction. When it comes to reaching this metric, video content is king right now. Facebook decides how many people will organically see what you put out, and if you’re consistent, creative and dynamic, your content will perform a lot better. A lot of people won’t know what they want to hear until you tell them, and that’s where carpet bombing comes into play. Put out so much content that you can hit many people at different times and needs.
