With the hundreds of social media metrics available today, the challenge is understanding which metrics will help you make smart decisions about your social strategy and wider business goals.

While many social marketers can identify the right objectives and put together a compelling social plan, the metrics and tracking phase is where many of us lose steam—especially when communicating results to internal partners with different levels of social expertise.

It’s the role of social media managers to define what success looks like, measure it consistently and educate colleagues about the power of social data.

That’s where the Social Metrics Map comes in.

In this resource collection, we’ll review the stages of the social media sales funnel and their corresponding objectives. Then, we’ll walk through a simple, three-step process for mapping owned, earned and paid social media strategy to relevant KPIs and their business value, depending on which stage of the funnel your social program focuses on.
