Be clear about your goals

Know the right channels
Start with Google Analytics to recognize the relevant social channel that is bringing more visitors to your website. Also, it will let you know the quality of traffic your website is receiving.
Have a baseline
Before you start analysing performance of your posts, spend time to analyse the average performance per channel over the past few months. This way you can have a clear baseline for the future analytics.
Get it at one place
Build a multi channel dashboard where you can get reports about the performance of your posts in different social media. You can save time and compare the performance in one screen itself.
Know the KPI’s
Once you know about your Key Performance Indicators, it will be easy to measure and evaluate the social media performance. Know the right metrics so that your content creation can be channelized to reach the goal.
