10 top ways to measure and manage your social media campaign

How effective and efficient are your social media campaigns? Angela Han explores tools that help you measure and manage all the posting, tweeting and blogging.
Many businesses know how to engage in social media but how many know how to measure it? It can be time-consuming to track what people are saying about a business, especially when multiple social media accounts are in use. In response to this problem, a vast range of Social Media Monitoring (SMM) tools are sprouting up all over the web to assist businesses to manage, listen, discover, and engage with consumers the world over with minimal effort.

SMM tools allow users to sign-in to a single website from where they can update all their social media accounts in one go, send and receive messages from all customers through just one inbox, see what people are saying across thousands of popular websites in one analytics panel and track social-media campaigns in one glance.

Sounds too good to be true? Here’s a list of some of the slickest online KPI (key performance indicator) applications to makes SMM a breeze, divided into those that measure and those that manage.
