An Overview of Social Media Analytics

Using Social Media Analytics to Guide Our Strategy

Purple Bean Media harnesses the power of social media analytics to tailor strategies that drive success for our clients. By diving deep into data insights, we craft informed strategies, refine content, and optimize campaigns to maximize engagement, reach, and ROI, ensuring that every move we make is backed by measurable results.

Social media marketers use platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Youtube, X, Pinterest and many other channels to promote their business. All of these channels offer insights, data and analytics that guide us. By using these social media analytics, we know what content your audience likes, what content we need double down on and what features to use.
Put another way, social media analytics is the ability to gather and find meaning in data gathered from social channels to support business decisions — and measure the performance of actions based on those decisions through social media.
When you think about social media analytics, you probably think of metrics such as likes, follows, retweets, previews, clicks, and impressions gathered from individual channels. This definitely is part of it, but it goes a lot deeper.

There are off platform tools that provide data that work similarly to web search tools. Data about keywords or topics is retrieved through search queries or web ‘crawlers’ that span channels. Fragments of text are returned, loaded into a database, categorized and analyzed to derive meaningful insights.

Social media analytics includes the concept of social listening. Listening is monitoring social channels for problems and opportunities. Social media analytics tools typically incorporate listening into more comprehensive reporting that involves listening and performance analysis.

Why are social media analytics important?

Social media can be an amazing tool and can build your brand with a limited budget. But there is a flip side. News about a bad product or a bad experience can spread just as fast. Consumers willing share the good and the bad to the world.

In short, you don’t want to approach a social media strategy blind. You want to know that there are metrics and data behind it.
