Top Social Media Analytics Tools

Are you the social media manager of your brand? Or maybe, you don’t have a tag, but you are responsible for your brand’s image on social media? That means you have to analyze social media from time to time.

If this analysis is backed up by data, your brand has more chances of building a following and converting them into customers.

This analysis can answer a lot of important questions. For example, which social media should get most of your attention whether in terms of time or money? What pieces of content can you call the power posts? What actions is your social media presence driving?

On top of these questions, Sprout says that around two-thirds of marketers are expected to discuss social ROI with their bosses to justify their spending for campaigns. That’s a tough thing because measuring the ROI is not always a piece of cake.

However, it doesn’t always have to be that way. If you are using the right social media analytics tools, you’ll get the answers you need to grow your brand.

Here are those tools:
