Google Analytics & Data Integration measuring Social Media ROI

You as a marketer recognize the important role social media plays. Engaging with your audience, increasing brand awareness, and driving traffic to your website. But, is determining social media ROI a pain point?

Pressure from on high is asking for figures, proof of the value of your social media campaigns. You need to demonstrate what’s working and what isn’t; to justify the cost and to show revenue earned.

Because the data sources of social media and web analytics are separate, it'll take several tools to measure accurately and collect all the data you need. Sure, it's tempting to rely on a single tool to measure social media ROI, but you'll only get a small portion of what you need. 

Talkwalker has launched a new feature so you can now find all the business impact metrics you need to measure your social media ROI accurately, and it's in one place. We’ve integrated Google Analytics into the Talkwalker platform. It’s going to keep you, your team, and your CEO happy.
