Big data has rushed into every field and social media is no exception. Riding on it, social media channels offer analytics that gives a clear image of ROI on marketing efforts. This separates and leads social media ahead of all other marketing platforms.

A bad part of marketing on social media is that a strategy that once worked may not repeat the same results. Remain on your toes always…that’s the key.
