InboundMarketingHacksHi, I'm Roman; and this is Mike. Welcome, fellow inbounder. This week we look at content marketing KPIs, inbound marketing hacks and top social media campaigns.

How to Develop Effective Content Marketing KPIs - if you are looking to truly measure content effectiveness then start with the end in mind (i.e. your business). More specifically, forget about marketing and think business goals. Marketing serves your company not the other way around. Importantly, understand the benchmarks. Content conversion rates of 2% are about average. Where are you as it relates to that benchmark? Don't set KPIs without business objectives and benchmarks.

Longer content is shared more and shows your depth to visitors. It's also more likely to be indexed by Google. Similarly, upgrading your most popular posts is also helpful. These posts are bringing the most traffic to your site so be sure you have a popular CTA and good links in highly traveled blog posts.
