If you’re looking for ways to boost your social media stats, the best way to do it is to keep experimenting and trying new things. I’ve collected 30 small and simple experiments and growth hacks you can try this month to see what works for you. They’re all low-cost and easy to implement, but even the smallest tweaks can lead to great improvements.
Let’s face it. Content creation is messy. You’ll need to post regularly to see results; don’t just sit and wait for your muse. But that’s not how it usually happens. There’s a way to make it less chaotic, though: Using Editorial calendar. Today I’m happy to share with you a template from Editorial calendar that we use here at TrueSocialMetrics.
How much do you actually know about the effects of your social media marketing efforts? Do you understand trending? Do you know how your content affects your target audience? Moreover, can you really tell what your target audience needs? And how about your competitors – are you aware how your content is perceived compared to the content provided by other companies? This is where social media analytics tools come in to give you detailed insights into all of these questions.
Your site, social media page, or brand are like a dark room - you have no idea what’s going on inside, how customers interact with your product, what they think about your content and so on. That is, until you turn on the flashlight of analytics. Suddenly, you can see that customers hated your posts about super bowl and your inspirational proverbs but totally loved your silly videos about cats; that they had troubles subscribing to your newsletter on a site and have no idea how to navigate the pricing page.
I stumbled upon an interesting technique Barney’s uses to present their clothes and accessories on Pinterest. They always make 2 types of pins for each product: an “Individual Product” and a “Product in a Setting”. I couldn’t just walk by and not compare the effectiveness of both methods of product representation. Which one is more likely to be re-pinned and liked - an “individual product” or a “product in a setting” format?
The main goal of Facebook pages for Movies is to promote their theater release and boost tickets sales. But when the show is over, the work continues for a second wave to come - disk releases. I was curious what creative content techniques film studios use to promote their disk releases. So I looked at the best movies of 2014 and used the Content Segmentation feature to analyze it.
A huge unfair advantage of big brands with regional branches and sister-brands is the ability to create their own internal standard to compare with and benchmark effective content tactics from the fellow-brands. Let’s study the case of some famous hotel chains’ presence on Facebook, like DoubleTree Hotel by Hilton in Europe.

Stop making your boss and clients unhappy by trying to measure the ROI of your Social Media efforts. It’s quite obvious that different channels/content/keywords should be targeted to a different needs of users, depending on their current stage of Buying Decision Process. But what almost everyone overlook is that KPIs should also be chosen according to a stage.
As long as we remember there was an intense rivalry between soda brands on the market. Everyday this Soda War unfolds on different battlefields and one of them is Social Media. In this study we’ll take a look at top 5 soda brands on Twitter at Summer 2013 to assess and compare their Twitter accounts performance.
It’s always curious to learn the best practices from the top performers. But even more interesting to know what’s going on behind the official results of the best social media campaigns. What happened ever after the successful activity? What creative techniques were used to engage followers? Let's analyze the best 3 Facebook campaigns of Facebook Studio 2013 award winners. And find something curious.
When you choose in which community to participate or compare your own community with competitive ones you usually look at the number of followers. The more, the better. But on practice, it’s not always the case. What really matters is how active they are. Nobody likes deadly silent unresponsive communities.
The era of TV commercial, printed press, radio and other “monoloque-marketing” channels has passed into shadow. The main benefit of the new communication channels is a user response. But, got used to the old channels, marketers still use the new ones by the same scheme: omnipresent shouting about their brand, not counting on response.
Our first attempt to use Adwords was a little bit disappointing :) The traffic from Adwords had poor quality and was very expensive. So here\’s our story how we dealt with this. The main reasons for our fiasco were problems with Quality score of the keywords. The symptoms looked like that: the keywords were degrading with the flow of time.
As you know by default Google Analytics experiments works only with separate pages and it works well when you are stating advertising campaign. So you can control destination url. But what todo, if you doesn't control your traffic source: search, referral, social media posting. That's the main issue. But we will have simple solution how to fix it.
