Today on the Academy we’re talking about measuring the performance of your social media efforts. That starts with establishing why you want to be on social media in the first place, and ultimately what success means when you get there.
Determining which social media metrics to measure can be confusing and a bit overwhelming, and quite honestly hard to do. For many businesses, it’s hard enough to just do the work of posting and engaging on social media on a regular basis. The last thing most marketers and business owners have time for, is to actually figure out how to measure success.
From tracking growth of your followers, to knowing how well your posts are driving engagement, you might be wondering which social media metrics are the most important for your small business and where you can start.
We’re going to start off by giving you a little bit of advice about what our company did to develop a little bit of structure for our social media and to set some goals as to why we’re even going to do it in the first place. Then we’ll get into more specifics about how you can measure paid and organic social media efforts in your digital marketing.
