  • 4. SO, WHERE DO WE START? If a company could reach 16% of it’s total following on a social account with a single post/update. Assuming a 1% click-through rate on the post and a 2% conversion rate from visits to lead, the brand would need 1,250,000 followers to generate 250 leads. - Nichole Kelly, Social Media Explorer That’s indeed academic! In reality, measuring social media RoI is not that straightforward a deal.
