With the importance of using social media channels to promote your company's message and growth, you've probably found yourself jumping in feet first to get on Twitter, Facebook, and emerging new media sites as quickly as possible to increase your brand's presence. But have you stopped to think about how these channels can help you meet your business or personal goals? Unless you are clear on what your goals are, and how they can be measured, chances are you aren't using these social media outlets to their full potential.

That's where the social media audit comes in. The most successful social media programs start with an analysis of their existing online presence to determine goals for any social media programs moving forward. Using a few key searches, you can examine which social media channels are best for your company and how to make your message come across.

In this webcast, you will learn how to keep track of where and how your company is represented online; how you size up against your top competitors; how to know what's working and what's not; where you can best reach your influencers; where you can make headway in your market; and how you can leverage your findings to make the best social media decisions
