Social Media Audit

Social Media Audit: First thing to do is, audit the company website – What products and services they’re offering. What the company or website is all about. Company website audit is done to figure out what the target market, audience and business objectives is.

This Social media audit includes getting answers to the following key questions:

  • What is the company trying to achieve through social media marketing?
  • How good is the company in achieving its business objectives through social media?
  • Who are their target audience and why?
  • How good is the company in targeting customers?
  • How good is the company in building positive influence among customers?
  • How good is the company in engaging with the target audience?

Locate and audit all social media profiles URLs available on company’s website. Do they have a blog link or not.

Audit all social media ‘Meta tags’ integrated on Company’s website:

  • Open Graph
  • Twitter Cards 
  • Pinterest Rich Pins
  • Google Structured Data

Audit the social media profile:

Facebook Page Design
Facebook Page Design

Evaluate Profile Cover page design: How it is designed and what message it has, does it match to the company/web site texture. If there is any message on the cover page that text cannot exceed 20% of the cover image area (as per Facebook advertising condition should be matched).

Evaluate Profile Image: Profile image is used whenever you post and it is the first thing users see when glancing through posts in their news feed, so it is important to see if the profile image is well placed as per Facebook guidelines that are at least 180×180 pixel image size and the rendered image is well designed/logo.

Call to Action button: Audit if the call to action button is there and it is well considered according to the services they are offering. Currently this ‘ call to action buttons’ offered by Facebook.
