#SocialMediaAnalysis – What to Measure in a Social Media Analysis

You work hard to make sure that your social media feeds are vibrant and engaging. But are your efforts working? To make sure that you’re getting the most from your social media dollars and determine if your strategy is working, you need to monitor its effectiveness. That means that you need a formal plan for taking measurements! But precisely what metrics should you be tracking?

  • Social Media Engagement: It doesn’t do much good to spend your resources on creating good content if it’s not getting the attention of your community. While the precise metrics will depend on the platform, you should monitor likes, shares, re-tweets, and replies. If your content is not engaging, then you need to reevaluate.
  • Search Engine Rankings: It is critical that you know whether or not customers can find you. Keeping track of where you stand in terms of search engine rankings will help you determine that. Your goal should be to place as high as possible on page 1 so that you’ll be found by the right people.
  • Volume and Conversion: Whether it’s your website or your social media, you need to know how many people are visiting your sites and how these numbers are trending. On Facebook, for example, you should monitor how many people like your page and how this is changing over time. You want to see growth, but you also need to monitor trends over time. For Twitter, you want to track your followers. For your website, you should analyze visits, bounce rates, and where your visitors are coming from.
  • Demographics: It is essential to know what types of people are using your content so that you can determine if you are hitting your target audience.
  • Click Rates: It is important to know what content is hitting a chord with your audience. If no one clicking on the links you publish then your call to action needs to be tweaked.

Establishing a program to monitor how well your social media is working can be tricky. Luckily, you can get help from experts. When you consult with The Social Media Advisor, you can take advantage of a FREE social media analysis. In no time at all, you’ll be able to determine if your social media campaigns are targeting the right customers, generating engagement, and helping you grow your business.

#SocialProof – What is Social Proof and How Do You Earn It?

If you’ve heard the term “social media influencer,” then you know what social proof is. Think about how you go about choosing a restaurant. How do you feel when you pull into the parking lot of an eatery and it’s empty? Chances are you keep on driving since you want to know that others are eating there. That is social proof.

How about testimonials and reviews? Yep – also types of social proof.

There are all sorts of scientific analysis that explore the meaning of the term, but we all know what it means. Social proof is simply following the lead of others.

While the term social proof is relatively new, the concept is not. Advertisers and marketers have been using it forever – think “Dentist recommended,” “AAA Rated,” as well as client lists. What’s new is the need for social marketers to pay attention to how they incorporate social proof in their overall strategy.

When you consider how difficult it can be to differentiate between all the different product offers that are available, it’s easy to understand why social proof is so important. Social proof, whether positive or negative, sets products and services apart.

Even search engines, with their heavy emphasis on engagement, demand that you take the concept seriously. Earning strong social proof will not only convince people to try your product or service, but it will also get you found in a sea of similar offerings.

Earning social proof is not easy. Think about it in terms of establishing a strong reputation: it doesn’t happen overnight. It’s not enough to create great content; you have to package it, convince your community to share it, and get the word out. Chances are you are already employing social proof in your online content and on your social media. You just may not have thought about it in those terms.

But do you know exactly how you are using social proof and whether or not it’s effective?

Luckily, there is a way to find out.

The first step is to take advantage of the FREE social media analysis offered exclusively by The Social Media Advisor as part of our discovery session. You’ll learn how to improve your approach to social proof and what you can do to make sure that you are getting found. Let us help you make the most of your social proof and improve your SEO.

What is a Social Media Analysis?

Social media marketing is an essential element when building an online presence for your small business. There are many bells and whistles associated with social media strategy including content management, social listening, monitoring and engagement, lead generation strategies and analytics. A social media analysis helps brands look at the ‘big picture’ of their social media marketing efforts to examine what’s working and what could use improvement.

We are long past the days where you could post something on social media and organically reach your audience with little to no thought or strategy involved. There’s a lot of noise out there. Positioning your company for success and building a targeted strategy are the keys to success when marketing your biz online.

What does a social media analysis include?

Online Presence

Have you searched for yourself recently on Google? Have you done a search for your name or your company name on social media? Are there duplicate social profiles using your name? Are there websites publishing content about you and your company that you aren’t aware of yet? The first step in doing a social media analysis is to take some time and see what’s already out there. What do people see when they do a search for you? While you can’t control what other people do online, you can be proactive about being a solid online presence that will help combat anything negative. If you aren’t seeing anything at all, then you know exactly where to start!

Profile Review

Have you utilized all the characters in your social media bios to optimize your pages for search purposes? Each social media platform is its own search engine. If you have not completely filled out your bio, about and profile sections on each one, you aren’t optimizing your opportunity to be found by your ideal audience.

There are 2600 words available to you in Facebook and LinkedIn alone. Have you maxed that out with the right keyword phrases to make it easier for folks to find you? Some bios give you fewer characters – you’ll need the right words for Twitter and Instagram since those bios are so short.

Facebook actually has a keyword area, the Impressium, created by Mark Zuckerberg. Most people don’t realize it’s even there, much less use it to their advantage.

Have you taken the time to express who you are, what you do and what pain points you solve for folks that stumble upon your biz online?

If you do not have a robust story posted online with the necessary components to keep you searchable then people can’t find you.

Social Media Audit

Next, let’s look at your content. What are you posting on your social media feeds? Is it quality content that your audience will want to engage with? Is it packed with the right keywords and phrases to not only grab attention but also make your content more searchable? Are you utilizing a hashtag strategy so that even more people can find and follow your content?

All of these tactics ensure that your online presence on social media is the best it can possibly be. If you don’t have time to tackle this yourself, or find it to be overwhelming, we offer a Social Media Analysis Report for free as part of our discovery session. Your Social Media Marketing Analysis Report will show you areas that need improvement to boost your social proof and current SEO ranking!

Let’s get you FOUND by your target audience in 2019!
