Answer These 8 Questions to Analyze Your Business’ Social Media Presence
1. Which social media sites are you currently on?
Businesses should be active wherever their audience can be found, and this includes all the popular social platforms. Along with reaching customers, authoritative links from major social sites will have positive search engine optimization (SEO) benefits for the business’ website.
2. Which social media sites are your customers using?
You can maximize your available resources by targeting the platforms your customers use most. Facebook might be the most popular site, while a clothing brand (for example) might find a more active user base on Instagram.
3. How many Facebook followers does your business’ page have?
While follower count isn’t the only metric to consider, it is a good way to measure growth. If you are providing value on your business’ page and promoting it effectively, you should always be able to find an audience on Facebook.
4. How many posts are you publishing each week?
Consistency is a critical part of a business’ online reputation, so irregular posting is a quick way to lose audience interest. Remember, you have the chance to drive traffic to your website every time you post on social media.
5. Are you boosting posts?
Boosting a Facebook post allows you to increase reach and target audiences more accurately. If your content can add value to your audience and drive more sales, boosting the post is a cost-effective way to maximize its impact.
6. Do you have a Like campaign?
Likes signal to audiences that a piece of content is popular and worth their time. Unfortunately, many brands struggle to organically get social media visibility. A Like campaign could be the answer to issues with engagement.
7. What is your total reach in the past 28 days?
Monitoring social media reach will give you valuable data on the number of unique visitors looking at your content. Businesses need to start tracking total reach to find out if their strategies are working.
8. What is your total engagement in the past 28 days?
Similar to reach, total engagement will show if your content is resonating with audiences. For example, our content writing services are often used to create content for infographics. Tracking user activity for the infographic will show if customers are interested in this type of content.
