Deciding to setup your first social media dashboard is a big decision. You understand the benefits and realize the power of collecting massive amounts of data, but that doesn’t mean you know how to get started.
Fortunately, when you rely on a provider like Dasheroo, the process is straightforward. Believe it or not, you can be up and running within a matter of minutes.
Here are a few things to think about when setting up your first social media dashboard:
1. Which Platforms Are You Tracking?
Maybe you’re a big fan of Twitter and Facebook. Or maybe you spend most your time on LinkedIn and YouTube.
Make a list of every social platform you use, and then add each one to your dashboard. Even if you don’t actively use a particular platform right now, it’s best to start collecting data as soon as possible. You never know what will change in the future.
2. Review Your Jumping Off Point
Once your dashboard is setup and data begins to roll in, make note of where things stand with each platform.
Have you achieved robust growth on Facebook to this point, but find that your Twitter account is lagging far behind the competition?
With a baseline in place, it’s easier to track your progress moving forward. And of course, you can rely on your dashboard to do all the tracking and reporting for you. Your goal is to review the data and make adjustments based on your findings.
3. Share With Your Team
There may be other people on your team who require access to your social media dashboard. Don’t hide it from them. Instead, share everything with your team to ensure that you’re all on the same page.
Here’s what we have to say about this:
“Sharing is caring, and productive, when you’re working together across your Insights and Dashboards. Comment and chat real-time right from within Dasheroo and get results!”
Sometimes a bit of sharing can go a long way in helping you reach all your social media related goals.
If you’re ready to setup your first social media dashboard, these three points can put you on the right track. Soon enough, you’ll have everything in order and you’ll be ready to take full advantage of all the data available to you.
