6 Ways to Make Social Media Measurable

How do you know your social marketing is working or not? How do we measure it correctly? Here are a few things to look at when measuring social media.


1. Campaign Visits
– Using a source like Google Analytics allows you to track number visits and page landings on your social profile.

2. Interactions
­– These are the number of times prospects interacted with your social profiles i.e. signing up, voting, liking, etc. By comparing interactions with the number of campaign visits you will be able to better understand how engaged visitors are.

3. Shares – Shares are like interactions but even better. When your audience shares and re-tweets your posts, you will begin to see the momentum.

4. Resulting Clicks
– This is when people are responding to shares/re-tweets by visiting your site. People are more likely to check things out that their family has already endorsed resulting in more engagement.

5. Registration
– These are people who have landed on your site and who have then filled out a form to receive an offer from you.

6. Influencers
– By using your existing network you will want to create an even bigger one. Determine who your biggest influencer are and focus on their social networks to help widen your reach.
