Measuring Your Social Media Efforts

Given the ever-changing landscape of social media, the only way to find out which social media marketing strategies are worthwhile is to track your ROI through data analysis. Social media marketing trends come and go, and there are hundreds of tactics being talked about at any given moment. It’s impossible to know what strategies bring returns without measuring them.


Defining Your Social Media ROI

It's can be challenging to track the exact financial return of social media marketing with a monetary value. That's because some leads who initially find you through social media end up making a purchase on your website much later, and the sale may not come directly through a link you posted on social media. Social media is about gathering prospects at the beginning of your sales funnel, and guiding them to the next stages, like subscribing to your email list or reading some of your blog posts.
