11 Types of Brand Engagement

 , updated on
Brand engagement is a valuable interaction between a customer and a brand. It is commonly used as a metric that measures interactions between customers and your products, services, environments and communications. Such metrics differ widely from one organization to the next as the definition of "valuable interaction" is business specific. Some firms view brand engagement as a core metric that drives revenue. Others view it as a vanity metric that is interesting but secondary to financial metrics such as customer lifetime value. The following are common types of brand engagement.


Purchases of a product or service.

Loyalty Programs

A customer joins a loyalty program.

Products & Services

Time spent interacting with your products or services. For example, customers may spend hours a day interacting with a game.


Visits to a physical location such as a showroom or an electronic location such as a website or app.
