Focus here on increasing engagement, brand sentiment, and customer satisfaction, not just strengthening established relationships. However, paid social networks are great for brand awareness, reaching new audiences, driving conversions, and increasing sales.

Both contribute to a customer's journey in unique ways, and the above goals are all part of a good social media strategy, so it would be a mistake to ignore one or the other.
