Social Media Analytics Made Easier

Social Media Analytics Made Easier

At GRM, our passion is helping good companies and brands succeed. Which is exactly why we’ve made a BIG move at our agency. Social media is a large part of what we do for our clients. Creating content, managing accounts, and providing strategic insight and planning are critical parts of our day-to-day. However, beautiful photos and witty tweets can only take a brand so far. Which is exactly why we are putting the most emphasis on the last point made above. Strategic insight has become the core of everything that we do at GRM. Enter: Simply Measured. At the beginning of the year, we began using the social analytics solution to help us bring each of our clients to the next level. It’s about making informed decisions, which allow us to provide exceptional results.   Here are a few of the reasons why we have started using Simply Measured:  
  1. It allows us to analyze our brands paid, owned, and earned activity from all of their social networks. We now have a greater ability to discover and communicate meaningful patterns from social data – giving GRM, and our clients, the opportunity to grow and develop their programs.
  2. It has become our full suite analytics arm that helps us research conversations, competitors, and audience across all social networks.
  3. It quickly highlights the impact of brand activities, as well as helping us see, share, and optimize real business outcomes for our clients.
  By providing a complete social analytics suite and process, we are able to better understand the impact of our social strategies. Simply put, Simply Measured gives us access to information, analysis, and insight necessary to plan our clients’ strategies, measure their performance, optimize their tactics, and tie social activity to larger business outcomes.   Now, that, is an exciting tool.

We have learned that sharing real-life facts of EV drivers are popular amongst our EV Facebook audience. Users that are on the fence about driving an EV can hear first-hand from their personal experiences, enticing them to learn more. When it comes to electric vehicles, we never want to communicate like car salesmen to encourage a sale but instead highlight the benefits and improvements that driving an EV adds to the average user’s life.
FODAC: Truck Fundraising Success

FODAC: Truck Fundraising Success

Up until December 2015, FODAC (Friends of Disabled Adults and Children) hosted the majority of their fundraising campaigns in a traditional manner: meetings, mailings, and checks. But this December, FODAC had an immediate need for a new delivery truck. And we were confident FODAC’s social community could rally together to raise the $30,000 needed, which would be matched dollar-for-dollar by a donor. A steady email campaign, Facebook posts, video, and a social ad budget worked wonders. And by December 31st, their fundraising goal was not only met, it was exceeded. The new truck is being ordered and FODAC is going to be able to reach twice as many people, delivering and picking up equipment for those living with disabilities. What a great first-run with an online-driven fundraising campaign. We can’t wait to see what FODAC will accomplish in the future!
