Last month our digital team was able to join an AdWeek webinar about the best ways to use social media analytics to maximize your brand impact. This topic is only growing more and more relevant to the marketing world, and we’ve put together our top key takeaways to share with you.
Visual Content is Key
Users have been moving toward more visual social media platforms such as Instagram, and therefore so have businesses. In 2018, there were 1 billion active Instagram users, and businesses began shifting marketing ad budgets from Facebook to Instagram.
