What is the ROI of Social Media?

Have you ever asked the following question: What is the ROI of Social Media marketing? If you haven't carved out a budget for social media marketing or started to create your own content for you business, you've most likely been waiting for an answer to that question. More importantly, you should be asking, where are the customers that I want to attract to my business? 

When you answer that question, you realize that you should be "all in" on social media. This doesn't mean that you need to give up any of the traditional forms of advertising that you may already be doing for your business. However, each quarter of business it is important to evaluate which campaigns are creating the most business for you.

For each post that you create, video, photo or text Facebook with share with you the results of its effectiveness, including how many people viewed the post and engaged with it (commented, liked, shared, etc.).
