  4. 4. HOW TO CONDUCT A SOCIAL MEDIA AUDIT Step by Step. #FalconEd
  5. 5. What is a Social Media Audit and why should you do it? • An audit should be a key part of your effective social media strategy. • Once a year you should asked yourself: what’s working and what’s not? • An audit allows you to determine next steps based on a numbers driven approach. • You can either conduct an audit once or twice a year or reactively after something important happened (i.e. a product or campaign launch).
  6. 6. What to consider before you start. • Find a format which can be easily continued throughout the next year(s). • Choose your KPIs wisely. • Don’t over-engineer your report. • Make a plan or list on topics you want to audit and follow through until the bitter end. • Block yourself some time to do it!
  7. 7. What should an audit contain? A solid game plan! Time to clean up your channels! Channel performance Post & campaign performance Audience analysis Competitor benchmarking Next year’s plan… Block yourself enough time! Always challenge the “so what!” Tip
  8. 8. CLEAN THINGS UP! • This is big. Take some time and clean up all your channels: 1. Check if every channel is actively in use (especially if you operate in multiple regions, etc.) 2. Check if all channels are visually on brand. 3. Check if descriptions and bios are up to date. 4. Check for broken links (especially in “about us” sections). • Evaluate if channels with a low follower amounts should be either reactivated or switched off. YEAH, IF YOU COULD CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELF THAT´D BE GREAT
  9. 9. Which content KPIs should I choose? • It’s important that you choose KPIs that will (hopefully) still be there next year, and which can be found throughout the majority of networks you want to compare • At Falcon.io we usually consider the following: 1. Channels KPIs: follow, fans, reach, page views, total page interactions 2. Engagement KPIs: link clicks, shares, likes, comments, impressions 3. Post level: high engagement or high reach, best performing post per network/per year (or at least from the past 6 month)
  10. 10. Some of my posts did really great - so what? • Constantly asked yourself: if a posting did well, for example on engagement, why is that or what have you done differently this time? • Can we learn something from the content/topic we published? • Can we draw certain conclusions from the network and could we transfer these findings into other networks? • Make a list with successful campaigns and example posts - this could help you with your next year’s strategy.
  11. 11. Who am I talking to? (and who’s talking to me?) • Always check your audience insights. • This could include insights, such as: 1. Gender & Age 2. Location (Country, City) 3. Language 4. Specific Interest • Check if you want to expand your reach to specific groups, or if you will reach everyone you intended to based on your 2018 strategy.
  12. 12. What's cooking for next year? • Review your results and create an action plan for 2019. • Use the time to look into “exotic” networks or just networks you haven’t looked into yet (but maybe your competitors have). • Stop planning campaigns on topics which haven’t performed in 2018. • Start to plan more engaging content and try to push yourself with undiscovered content opportunities.
