Creating effective social media marketing reports is a critical part of the social business process. Here are some tips for effective social reporting.

After allocating budget to social media advertising, your executive team will be expecting to see how those ad efforts are paying off. Performance reporting is an inevitable task for any business that takes social media marketing seriously –  the key to creating effective social media reports is ensuring the data you present is appropriate, and relevant, for the audience at hand.

Preparing and presenting a monthly report can bring about similar stress as those college thesis papers that counted for 75% of your grade – except this particular assignment happens twelve times per year. Your team’s worked its tail off to meet and exceed KPIs, and diligently tracked everything for reporting purposes – but if the presentation is full of disorganized data, your boss is liable to think you don’t know what you’re doing.

In the below infographic, we’ve put together five key tips that’ll give you the building blocks you need to build an effective report and facilitate productive conversation about your social media strategy.

Following these steps, you’ll be able to create a cohesive story that’s easy for clients – both internal and external – to follow, and will ultimately earn you trust and authority.

Find the right social media audience for your marketing messages. Here's how different generations - Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Boomers - use some of the biggest social platforms.

There will be 2.67 billion social media users worldwide by 2018, according to estimated cited in an infographic by Personal Money Service.

If more than one-third of the world is on social media, how can you make sure the right message gets to the right people?

The infographic suggests one way is to know your audience by generation. For example, it cites a statistic that Generation Z prefers to see real people rather than celebrities in their advertisements, and that 68% of Generation X makes buying decisions based on reviews.

The infographic also provides an overview of some of the major social media channels; it notes, for example, that 79% of all Twitter accounts are outside the US, and 65% of leading brands have an Instagram account.

To see more about how different generations use Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Pinterest, check out the infographic:
