With the rapid evolution of content marketing and a higher percentage of digital marketing dollars being allocated towards content partnerships and original branded content production, marketers are now looking for ways to measure content effectiveness.

They not only want to know how far content is reaching, but what topics, themes and types are most effective in engaging their target audiences – especially when it comes to Pinterest and Instagram. While still in its infancy, being able to measure Pinterest and Instagram is becoming easier and surprisingly affordable. Here are three independent software platforms that give provide fantastic data on visual content.

SimplyMeasured

Simply Measured provides easy social media analytics and measurement for data-driven agencies and brands. Simply measured works across all social media channels – Facebook, Twitter, Vine, Instagram, youTube, Google+, Google Analytics, Tumblr, Pinterest, and LinkedIn.  In an interview with founder Adam Schoenfeld, I asked, “How does SimplyMeasured help marketers analyze Pinterest and Instagram?”

Schoenfeld said, “we provide platform specific  analytics around brand owned profiles. On Insatgram and Pinterest, we measure the impact of the content created for that channel on its audiences. Marketers can understand, act and share content (video, photo, text) based on data of what’s resonating. They can also look at what competitors are doing on those same platforms to further increase their content effectiveness.”

With SimplyMeasured, analysis doesn’t stop with one profile. Marketers can measure the cohesive relationship between each network, your competitors’ social profiles, and how your audience interacts throughout the entire social space.  SimplyMeasured boosts of 40 different, visual rich reports that can either exported to PowerPoint or Excel, be further customized for branding purposes and then presented for company or client analysis. SimplyMeasured ranges from $500 – $1500 per month.
