Social media benefits businesses in a variety of ways; perhaps the most important to some is the ability to establish a dialogue with customers. But first, ask “What are you trying to accomplish?

- If the goal is engagement, learn how many people participate in the conversation: how many comments, replies, reposts or retweets are the posts generating?
- If the goal is awareness, look at reach, volume, and exposure to learn how widely your message is spreading.
- If the goal is driving traffic to the website, track clicks, URL shares, and conversions, along with the path people are using to enter various pages on your website.
