Quiz Time! Engagement Metrics

"Engagement" has been a buzzword in the marketing technology space for many years now, typically used to describe the depth - and sometimes quality - of a consumer's digital interactions with a brand.

Engagement, however, is a relatively vague term, which makes it difficult to measure. For example, an email marketer could determine engagement by opens, while a content marketer may measure the level of engagement with metrics like pageviews, time on site or actual event-based conversions.

Since engagement is tracked differently across channels (as well as per tactic), it's up to Web pros to know what to look for and have the right analytics technology stack in place; it's the only way to identify which initiatives and efforts are successful and which are underperforming.

Fortunately, Web pros can keep up with all of the latest engagement measurement tools, tactics and techniques by regularly visiting Website Magazine's .
