How Is Google Analytics Helpful To You

Data and Insights form the base of every execution on Digital or Social Media Platforms. Whether you are running a website, marketing your business on social media or through SEO/PPC Ads, or even affiliate marketing. Data is always the most important thing. Knowing how our content or ads are served or how people are reacting to our campaigns and how is the brand been absorbed by consumers on social media, is a very critical thing for us.

Being a Digital Marketer, I have to have a good information and insights about the consumers my business or clients want to target. Thus, I need a social media marketing, monitoring tool to manage my work, and make things easier for me.

With vast amount of data out there, its really necessary for me to churn out the very basic data and take out the meaningful insights to form a strategy or next plan of action for my business or for my clients. I have used multiple tools in the past, from Radian6, Sysomos, MeltWater, AlterianSM2, Hootsuite, SproutSocial and many others. Some of these tools have helped me form the best strategies using the insights that they provide.

At initial level, the first tool which I used was Radian6, almost 7 years back, I used to manually extract all the data, do some data mining and approximations, and what not to bring out some great insights for the brands I used to work for.

It’s been a long time, and after using various tools and techniques, I have noticed that the tools have evolved a lot in all these years. They have improvised their functions and UI, which makes it easier for today’s digital or social media marketers to make their work simple. The dashboards provide efficiency by choosing the right keywords and selecting the right mentions.

There was a big problem with these social media monitoring and analysis tools, which was sentiment analysis. Most of these tools didn’t provide accuracy in that. Manually churning the data, is next to impossible. Though, I have done that too, once point in time. But then you came to face the reality, which was a massive difference from what the actual sentiments are. However, Sentiment Analysis has been a everlasting discussion on accuracy.

However, from past few months I’ve started using KonnectInsights, for my business and for my clients, which is a fabulous all-in-one marketing tool and provides a really easy interface to extract data, select and register your keywords and to track topics. It makes my work quite easy.
