Marketing Metrics for building your brand

Traffic per time period

It’s good practice to measure this weekly or monthly (depending on the size of your business), so you can plan how to increase this figure for the next period. Are you ranking well on Google? Is your social media pushing traffic to your website?

Engagement % per post

On social media, this is easy as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram all have an ‘Insights’ tab, in which you can see who’s looked and reacted to you. You’ll need to look into software such as Google Analytics to see how many site users you’re getting, and this will also show you how long people stay on each page, click-throughs and more.

Satisfied readers %
