Now that you are using Social Media as a marketing tool, how do you know if it's working? Is your blog, Facebook page, or Twittering most effective? How do these efforts compare to your radio ad, or Google Adword campaign? Are you driving more people to your site through Social and traditional Media but not seeing a difference in sales or leads? And when they do arrive to your webpage, what are your visitors looking for? Do they find it? Discover that everything you need to answer these questions is right at your fingertips.
