  • All of these sound like good strategies, I am curious to hear your thoughts on personas. A social media persona is proven to help engage its viewers. It is based on the characteristics of one’s audience but only 10% of page visitors actually contribute. How do you suggest we create incentive for the other 90% to contribute proactively and help us learn more about our viewers to create more customized personas?
    Thanks Noel!
