Customer engagement is important for maximizing revenues and profits. The more engaged your customers are with your company and content, the more likely they'll be to make purchases from you.

The following are six mistakes to avoid that detract from digital customer engagement at your company. 

Failing to adequately personalize communication with customers

Customers will be more likely to respond to communication that is personalized. If you're sending out standard messages that are the same for all your customers, this could be why you're not getting a good response.

When practical, personalize messages and you may find that digital customer engagement improves. 

Giving your customers experiences that aren't memorable or positive

One of the most important factors when it comes to digital customer engagement is ensuring that all of your customers' experiences are positive.

Look at the process of doing business with you from the customer's perspective and make sure that you're responding to any feedback you get from past customers regarding the customer experience. This way, you can make changes to improve both the customer experience and digital engagement over time. 

Not putting enough thought into brand creation

Your brand should be engaging and attractive to customers if you want them to engage with your digital content. You need to put effort into creating a brand that is really appealing to customers.

Use your brand to increase awareness and recognition of your company on the web. This can result in a higher level of engagement. 

Making engagement too difficult for your customers

If you're not noticing a lot of digital engagement from your customer, perhaps you're making it too complicated for your customers to interact with you online.

One great way to make engagement easier is to add push notifications or "pop up" messages to your website that make it easy and fast for your customers to respond to your digital content. 

Focusing more on engaging with new customers than old customers

It's always going to be easier to get established customers to engage with your company than it is to get new customers to engage online. You therefore might want to focus on customer retention in your digital engagement efforts to make it easier to get a good response with your online content. 

Failing to produce content that evokes an emotional response

One of the biggest challenges of creating content that leads to engagement is finding ways to evoke emotional responses. Evoking an emotional response is possible if you can communicate with customers about issues that they care about deeply.

Consider your target audience members and their interests and concerns. Then, produce content that speaks to these interests and concerns while addressing topics about which your target audience will be particularly opinionated and passionate.
