This may include tracking the number of unique visitors, time on website, number of pageviews, number of followers on social media channels, etc. All of these metrics can be captured in a web-based tool such as Salesforce.com or Vocus.

During this time, you should discuss any issues or impediments the team has faced while executing against the influencer marketing program.This is a good opportunity to brainstorm and discuss items such as:Can we see the impact our program is having on our targets?What testing can we do to determine whether we are targeting the right set of influencers?What can we do to improve?Next week, I’ll discuss how to share the results.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to PrintPrintShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThislast_img
