How to Track Your Social Media Reach

Reach indicates the number of people aware of your brand or content. Think number of “likes” on a Facebook page, followers on Twitter, or subscribers to your YouTube channel. With the right tools, you will soon be able to understand more about where your target markets “hang out” online and where to expand your reach.
