Measure social media marketing success

Social Media Marketing - Target_10

Most American industrial companies have struggled to measure the returns on their social media marketing investments. I can understand the frustration of measuring the success of social media marketing. Too many companies measure the success of social media marketing by calculating esoteric measures such as “likes” and “followers”. Unfortunately, these measures are not enough to justify the return on investment, and more than 80 per cent of people that “like” a Facebook’s business pages never come back”, according to research.

So how do you really measure the success of social media marketing? The three key measures are shown below: engagement, participation and conversion.

REACH – how many people did you impact with your message?

The first place to start is to measure your “reach” – the number of people you have impacted with your social media content. If everyone ignores you in the social media world, you will do wrong and you will never produce results. Reach will give you a good understanding of the appeal of social media content to your target audience.

Engagement – how many people interact with your message?

After knowing your Reach, the next step is to see if anyone cares about your message so that it can really do that. By measuring “engagement,” you will be able to access these important information. To get people to engage with social media, you need to create valuable content that motivates people to take action. If your interactions are low, you need to evaluate how to improve the content.

Conversion – how many people take action because of your message?

Finally, it’s time to gauge the impact of your social media marketing efforts. The “conversion” will tell you how many people enter the next step to join the marketing database. The key to the success of social media marketing is to use your website as a “hub” for social media content – always link your website to your social network posts.

Want your brand to spread?- Find inner remarkability

As a marketer, you may be more interested in certain ideas or products than others.

What motivates people to share is the desire to look attractive, knowledgeable, important or universally attractive to their peers. Such sharing can increase awareness of community, identity and status. We call this social currency.

Remarkable things are unusual, extraordinary, and above all, worth mentioning. Needless to say, talking about excellence offers people a social currency because it makes them look interesting with their peers.

A great way to find inner remarkability is to show that your product is doing something completely extraordinary, unexpected or extreme. Surprised people, by breaking their expectations and no one will think of possible things.

For example, Blendtec, a blender company, has the most powerful motor in the industry. It offers the same commercial strength and quality as your favorite smoothie shop or restaurant. It launched a YouTube series called “will mix,” which has racked up more than 200 million views and 894 thousand subscribers.

Usually, a blender is used for mixing fruits, drinks, and other foods. So what does Blendtec do? It blends everyday objects, from iPhones to golf balls, into pure dust.

 

Watching this happen before your eyes certainly is remarkable. And, of course, people are surprised and then shared these video, until it succeed and spread to the world.

Needless to say, social media has forever changed the way society works, whether it’s the sharing of an idea, the communication of news, or the availability of a product or service. Society today is on the verge of a new way of existing that it’s never experienced before. No longer will people from one side of the world be really able to say that they will never see a person or communicate with someone from the other side of the world ever in their life. No longer will people not be able to share an idea, if they really want to share it (no matter how radical it may be or no matter how many people may disagree with it). No longer will the spreading of information or the expressing of an opinion be able to be completely silenced. As long as there is a person who wishes to express their opinion, share their music or art, or simply say hello to another human being in another country or culture, social media will allow them to do so.
