Social Analytics: Do You Focus Enough on Planning?

Social Analytics: Do You Focus Enough on Planning? Lucy Hitz Blogger Extraordinaire Simply Measured

unnamed-6A huge upside to being a social  marketer in 2015 is that you don’t have to make purely qualitative decisions to set your strategy.

The vast amount of data available on both your and your competitors’ programs is a great asset for informing and quantifying  your  #socialmarketing process.

Here at Simply Measured, social marketers have three distinct needs to address in order to be effective:

1. The ability to define and plan a social strategy.

2. The ability to execute on that strategy.

3. The ability to measure and optimize the success of the strategy and execution.

No marketing strategy is complete without coming full circle from planning to measurement.

I’m the Content Marketing Manager here at Simply Measured. I manage our blog, produce longform content, head our co-marketing initiatives, and host the Simply Social podcast, among a few other things. I love yoga, The X-Files, peaty scotch, hiking, and poetry. If I were a social media channel, I’d want to be Instagram, but I think I’m Twitter.
