SumAll: We live in an analytics driven world, yes? Love ‘em or hate ‘em, analytics give business owners and marketers the data they need to improve their social media engagement, define marketing decisions and tie ROI to their bottom line. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a one-stop-shop that connects all our social media activity and offers an “at-a-glance” daily snapshot? SumAll is a pretty handy tool for numbers and charts across the platforms.
Find out if you’re keeping your Facebook Fans engaged, which of your You Tube videos have the potential to go viral, if your blog posts are getting talked about, and which posts in G+ had the most impact. Sumall offers across the board analytics for all of the above, along with additional options like Shopify, Paypal, Google Ads, Tumblr, Bit.ly Basecamp, eBay, Mailchimp, Constant Contact and more. Connecting to these other accounts helps to visualize how your activity on social media affects other areas of your business and your bottom line. As you add these different data points, they’ll appear on the SumAll charting system that works to show you how the activity on one platform affects activity on another. SumAll also sends a daily digest via email to give you an indication of what’s working and what’s not with social media and beyond.
SumAll is currently in Beta and the basic account is free.
