    2.Set the Right Goals
    If you are running your marketing plans through guesswork, you are doing it wrong. Modern marketing is data-driven where you can virtually measure the impact of every single activity. Despite this, many marketers commit the dire mistake of not setting up any goals and measuring anything. In such cases, you'd find marketers saying, "Well, we stopped doing social media because it didn't work us."
    To avoid this, start by setting the right goals and metrics, choosing the right audience, and using it as a foundation to create your strategy.
    While addressing the social media mistakes to avoid, Neel Sinha, Founder, MyLnk, says, "To get success in social media, marketing strategy should have well-defined goals, the target audience must be identified, tactics to be employed should be implemented, the right amount of time should be invested, and proficient workforce should be employed to perform the tasks."

    This leads to different communication strategies and messaging for different channels, in the end confusing the audience. To indeed ace customer engagement in 2019, marketers must approach marketing as a whole rather than siloing it.
    Jitesh Banga, Product Marketing Strategy, Adeptia says, "A smoother symbiosis between all social channels can help propel new horizons and innovation. Enterprises can set up a unified interaction center, counteract many scale issues, and swiftly deal with silos that prevent teams from boosting business loyalty and improving social engagement."

    4.Prioritize Customer Experience
    In the early days, marketers used social media as a one-way communication channel but successfully evolved into using it as a platform to build and manage a community of their brand.
    Eric Meyerson, Head of Marketing, Sensai, emphasizes on the importance of listening to your audience. "Even if you don't spend a dime on sponsored posts or Facebook ads, it can still be useful to use Facebook or other social platforms as a listening tool to keep a finger on the pulse of public opinion. You might glean insights just from listening that can help you improve your customer experience – or head off the next public relations snafu," he adds.

Thankfully, AI can be of a huge help by implementing the right damage control practices.

    Pritha Bose, Marketing Content Specialist, Aritic informs, "Brands can find themselves in a sudden nightmare if product hoax stories or product disasters or trolls from competitors make way into social media. Luckily, AI is on its way to curating conversation flows and content to manage such fiascos. Using various filtering systems, AI systems are capable of monitoring millions of user comments across a large range of platforms and predict an emergency long before it occurs in real-time."
