Finally, the Top 4 Metrics to Follow in Social Media image

Marketers have been asking us what kind of metrics should they be monitoring in this world of social media. In a recent CMO Survey by IBM, marketers said that the bigest focus for them in the next years will be to make a sense of all those numbers, and we agree!

In social media, what are the metrics you should be following? From our perspective, it should be the following metrics:

  1. FANS – Total number of fans
  1. ENGAGEMENT RATE – The amount of people on average interacting with your content
  1. RESPONSE RATE/TIME – Response rate and time to your fans posts, very critical for reactive engagement
  1. GROWTH – Momentum and growth of your page

Bottom line, these are the metrics you should be monitoring not for 1 of your platforms, but for all of your social marketing platforms.
