5 Tips to Measure Social Media Marketing Performance

December 21st, 2009 by XDXY eMarketing

Social Media is becoming one of the most important online marketing tactic. More and more companies jump into social network marketing field to promote their brand or product, and they brought huge amount of marketing dollar in as well.  Since all marketing investment need to be evaluated returns, the question comes up: how to measure the performance of social media marketing?

I would like to share some tips about social media marketing performance measuring:

1. Impression. It’s not as easy as banner Ad to figure how many times of your page have been impressed, but you can still consider below points as performance evaluating:

  • How many Social Networking platform you registered accounts?
  • How many connections/followers you have?
  • How many groups you joined as member?
  • How many discussions you participated?


2. Traffic. One major purpose of social media marketing is to drive traffic to website, it’s all free and can be tracked clearly. If you are selling advertise on your website as well, use CPM (Cost per Mil) to calculate the ROI of social media performance.

3. Shares. People on social network platform do love to share their ideas and links with friends. They submit website links & content to major platforms, when they think either interesting or informative. It’s been called ‘word of mouth online’. So consider below 2 points on social media marketing shares:

  • How many of your website / pages have been submit to digg, StumbleUpon, etc..?
  • How many of your company name or product name has been mentioned over twitter, facebook, Linkedin?

4. Contacts acquisition. Acquire new contacts is one of most important thing for online marketing. The normal way is like: ‘subscription box’, ‘ask opt-in in online survey’ or ‘list buy’, and you can also leverage social media marketing to acquire new contacts. People come to social network platform is intend to make friends, so be friends with them, influence them in each update, convert them as your client. How many contacts you acquired from social platform is critical factor to measure social media marketing performance.

5. Revenue contribution. Check how much revenue the social media contribute is the most direct way to evaluate social media marketing performance.  Embed tracking code for all the social network post links (hide them by short URL service, like TinyURL if you want). If you sell products online, it’s not hard to track how much social media contribute.

How’s your Social Media Marketing performance so far?

    I certainly think that social networking tagging sites like StumpleUpon and Digg can be extremely useful, and tend to be underused in traditional SEO.

    I certainly think that social networking tagging sites like StumpleUpon and Digg can be extremely useful, and tend to be underused in traditional SEO. AS with all of the above, tracking results is much harder than using the media in the first place, I feel.

    Dean, you are making a mountain out of a mole hill here. You are opposing the website under the conception that you claim that friends cannot be made on this forum and that we suck people into this forum; all of that and even after I mentioned more than once that we are doing this so people can meet other people and have fun and can stay anonymous if they want to. When personal information is shared yes we try to remove it because we do not want to be held responsible if random strangers start to contact that person because their information appeared on our webpage.

We don’t believe frying makes everything better. Besides, how could these handmade steamed dumplings be better? A key to getting the most out of them is taking the sauce that comes with them again, if you can tolerate any heat whatsoever, go with the spicy option and pouring it over your dumplings and then turning them over in the bowl in which they’re served until they’re fully covered. It’s difficult for us to pick a favorite among the protein options, though on meatless days, its hard to think of comfort food more satisfying than the vegetarian dumplings with tofu, bok choy and Shiitake mushroom stuffed inside.

Can television actors make the jump to the big screen? Is there such thing as a perfect movie? Yes, yes and yes.锟紺inderella,锟?based on the 17th-century story by French writer Charles Perrault, had been filmed many times before Walt Disney made a classic of it in 1950. Over the past couple of decades, the Disney company had box office, if not critical, hits by taking its own animated films 锟紸lice in Wonderland锟?and 锟?01 Dalmatians锟?(as well as a Dalmatians sequel and 锟組aleficent,锟?a spinoff of 锟絊leeping Beauty锟?锟?also written by Perrault) and going the live-action route. Now it锟絪 锟紺inderella锟絪锟?turn. The actors portraying the iconic lead characters here 锟?Cinderella and Prince Charming (who锟絪 called Kit) 锟?are played by Lily James (锟紻ownton Abbey锟絪锟?Lady Rose MacClare) and Richard Madden (锟紾ames of Thrones锟?锟?Robb Stark). James plays Cinderella with oodles of spirit, and you don锟絫 often see widescreen smiles better than hers. Madden锟絪 character might as well have been named Prince Dashing, and there锟絪 nothing to sneeze at about his smile, either.That third question and answer: This movie is perfect. For kids, for adults, for anyone who wants to get lost in a great story greatly told. The triumph of it goes to everyone involved. Sure, you could stick with the acting prowess of and the chemistry between the two leads, but the casting of each character is just right, from Cate Blanchett as the mean and conniving stepmother Lady Tremaine to Derek Jacobi as the king (and father of the prince); from Helena Bonham Carter as the ditzily comical Fairy Godmother to Nonso Anozie (the merchant Daxos on 锟紾ame of Thrones锟? as the noble Captain of the Guard.There锟絪 a sad and funny and romantic and magical script from Chris Weitz (锟紸bout a Boy锟? who takes perfectly acceptable liberties with the original story, from which the Disney cartoon also took plenty of liberties. And there锟絪 perfect 锟?there锟絪 that word again 锟?direction from Kenneth Branagh who, over the course of his acting career, has shown some fine directing chops (锟組ary Shelley锟絪 Frankenstein,锟?锟紿amlet,锟?锟絊leuth,锟?锟絋hor锟?. Also, and write this down, there will be nominations next year for both production and costume design.For those few hermits who don锟絫 know the story, this 锟紺inderella锟?begins, as it should, with the words 锟絆nce upon a time,锟?uttered by an off-screen narrator telling us of a girl called Ella who lives, with her loving mother and father, in a beautiful home by the edge of the forest where, 锟絘ll was just as it should be.锟絎ell, no, this is a Disney film, so there锟絪 sorrow to spare.
