A3: Data is like a GPS. It points you in the right direction to reach your desired destination. In this case, data helps you understand WHO makes up your target audience, WHAT content resonates, and HOW to effectively communicate. #CMWorld

A3: Marketers can use data to see what content is engaging their audiences and what’s flopping and adjust as needed. It’ll take some experiementation — is it format? is it tone? is it content? — but insights will help marketers know when changes are needed. #CMWorld

A3. Use analytics (backlinks, shares, page views…) to make more effective @content by determining what people are engaginging with. Create more like the high engaging content. Make good content better and determine what lower performing content is worth fixing. #CMWorld
