It’s safe to say that most companies are all over social media.

But, and it’s a biggie, are they getting the most out of it? Yes, we’ve read, “10 Instagram best practices”, “3 fail-safe social media tips”, etc.

At Talkwalker we know that whilst it’s vital to keep up with new tips, tricks and innovations, how they should be used varies greatly on the brand, company, and industry.

With 2017 just around the corner, it’s time to get your social media measurement plan in place.
