How to Monitor Your Social Media Presence
In order to effectively execute your social media management, you need to have tools in place to actually measure your online social media presence and gauge your success. This means that you need to have clear goals for your social media marketing campaigns and know which metrics you are looking at.
The most popular social media sites have already taken steps to provide luxury jewelry brands and other businesses with a number of self-contained tools for social media management.
Twitter and Facebook analytics are both easily accessible from your social media home page tabs. These sites generally provide surface level statistics like the number of engagements received on individual posts, shares, geographic’s and more. This is useful information if you are trying to gauge the size of your current audience and learn which posts get the most attention. Google Analytics is another useful engagement tool to monitor more in-depth performance and traffic back to your website.
Another form of social media management involves scouring the web for mentions of your company. Software like Mention and BrandWatch allows you to search for your brand name and discover what people are saying about you online. Mention primarily relies on popular social media sites to gather data, but BrandWatch delivers into forums and other online platforms to give you a more complete data set. You can also use them to research your competitors and see how you compare. In addition, learn how to listen to your fans and engage in conversation with them.
