How and What to Measure on Social Media
Are you effectively measuring your social media ROI?
More than 60% of marketers say that measuring ROI is their main challenge when it comes to social media marketing.
Social media marketing is a fantastic (and cost-effective) way to get your brand in front of a targeted group of consumers, however many brands still struggle with how to measure its impact. As such, it’s very common for brands to rely on vanity metrics and not fully understand if their social media marketing is or is not driving tangible business value.
Here are the 5 Key Metrics you should be paying attention to:
Growing your social communities can help your content get more visibility, and even make your social advertising a little more cost effective.
Impressions and Reach
The number of people being served your content (reach) and the number of times your content is being served (impressions) can tell you a lot about how your content is performing.
Engagements are probably the most tracked metric for social media marketing – we’ve all become obsessed with being the brand with the most engagements.
Website visits tell you if your social media strategy is going the extra mile and attracting users to actively seek more information about your brand.
Measure your conversions from social media just like you would any other traffic source in Google Analytics.
