Importance of feedback and responding
  • Create a policy for interaction with any and all feedback and stick to it.

  • Feedback is also engagement with audience.

  • If a lot of people are liking the content, but not sharing it, what’s missing?

  • What can you do to encourage more sharing? Listen to what your audience is saying and what they are not saying

Response Policy: Always respond; always respond kindly.
