What You Don’t Know About New Technology Trends May Hurt You

 

By now, it’s probably a given that your company has a page on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter; and you may be pleased by the number of visitors you’ve getting. But if you don’t know who those visitors are, how they found you and what they want, are they really doing your business any good?

 

This is where the new DIY engagement analytics come in. No need to hire a marketing expert who’ll charge you an arm and a leg; these tools are easy to use and usually free. They track your online presence and tell you everything you need to know to convert those visitors into customers … and connect with many more potential customers just like them.

 

Let’s have a look at some of the most popular offerings.

 

Facebook Insights (free)

 

If you have a Facebook page, you already have Insights. Just click the link at the top of the page to see metrics about your audience, such as:

 

Demographic data (gender, age, location) about the people who liked your page

Engagement rate (views, likes, shares) of a particular post

How many paid likes (likes as a result of viewing an ad for your company) were received

 

Use the graphs to discover the reasons behind spikes and dips in page traffic, so you know what to do, or not do, in the future.

 

Twitter Analytics (included in the cost-per-click of your Twitter ad)

 

When you create a Twitter ad campaign you also get the ability to analyze the success of that campaign. Track the number of viewers that clicked over to your company website as well as other types of conversions such as a purchase or sign up.

 

Use this data to refine the targeting of future Twitter ad campaigns: by audience interests, geographic location, gender, keyword search use, and more.

 

You can also monitor basic metrics of both paid and unpaid Twitter activity from your dashboard.

 

Google Analytics (choice of free or premium)

 

With one account, you can keep comprehensive track of all your marketing efforts: online ads, videos, websites, apps and social media. It tracks a wide array of activity that affects marketing success, often with real-time reporting:

 

Customer characteristics, behaviors and path to conversion

Sales or other performance goals

Website and page function

Marketing test results

Multiple platforms and devices

 

Use the insights gained to understand, and reach, the people most likely to buy what you’re selling — with maximum efficiency of labor and expense.

 

socialmention.com (free)

 

This search engine consolidates mentions of your brand from more than 100 social media sites and blogs around the world, including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Digg. One convenient chart tells you who’s talking about your company, where they are and more. Data includes:

 

Strength (likelihood that your brand is being discussed)

Sentiment (ratio of positive to negative comments)

Reach (number of unique authors)

User names of most active commenters

Most frequently used hashtags

 

The future of business success lies in digital marketing. With user-friendly analytics tools like these, you can ensure that your investment in this direction is well spent … and richly rewarding.

How to Come Out (or Not) at Work
For LGBT+ individuals, revealing their true identity to co-workers, supervisors and clients comes with both risks and rewards. Your decision will depend on many factors — in both your own situation and the work environment — so there's no one right answer for everybody. However, as a LGBT-owned business, we'd like to share our insights and tips on making the process more successful.   Pros and Cons Workers who feel free to be their authentic selves at work report that they feel happier and more engaged. And studies show that they are more productive, which should please employers.   On the other side of the coin, many LGBT+ people are still in the closet due to fears of damage to their careers and workplace relationships. In a Harvard Business Review survey, nearly half (46%) of American respondents said they are not out to everyone at work.   Assess Your Workplace Atmosphere Get answers to these questions to help you decide whether it's a good idea to come out, or if...

Transgender in the Workplace: Tips for Employees and Employers
As an LGBT-owned business, Integrity is wholeheartedly dedicated to providing a diverse and fair working environment for all individuals. We've demonstrated over and over again that the keys to success for employer and employee alike are character, values and professional skills — not statistics on a piece of paper like gender or ethnicity.   In this post, we'll share our top tips for the transgender individual at work. While there is a trend towards greater acceptance of transgender rights in our society (and in the law courts), we still sadly see cases of harassment, prevention of use of the correct restroom, refusal to change names on employer documentation, denial of coverage for medically necessary procedures, etc.   The consequences of these actions may be more far-reaching than damages to one person. Companies who get a reputation for hostility to LGBT workers will alienate not just this group from their talent hiring options, but also the much larger pool of people who...

How to Find an LGBT-Friendly Employer
  The fight for LGBT employment rights has come a long way, thanks to support from the U.S. courts and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), among others. But we still have a ways to go before every company provides a diverse and welcoming workplace for all, regardless of gender identity and sexual orientation.   Here's how to recognize those employers who provide fair treatment to LGBT (and all other minority) individuals, before you decide to submit a job application.   Check Out Their Public Brand. Companies who are proud of their inclusive principles will let everyone know about it in mission and value statements, marketing campaigns, etc. Places to look include: Company website Company's social media pages (e.g. LinkedIn, FaceBook) Trade publications and forums LGBT Chamber of Commerce websites Employer rating websites such as GlassDoor Job postings — should include mention of being an equal opportunity employer   Research Their Track...
