Mike Allton‘s insight:

How many new followers did you add yesterday?

That’s an interesting question. Perhaps it’s never occurred to you, but if you’re using Google+ to promote your brand and business, the number of followers that you add on a daily, weekly and monthly basis is sort of important, isn’t it?

Certainly, bloated follower numbers aren’t the most important metrics, since you can have all the followers in the world but still no engagement or sales. Yet, at the same time, if we’re using social media correctly, we should be attracting new followers every day – connecting with new people that we can engage and spark an interest in our products or services.

The problem is, to get back to our initial question, how do you know how many people circled you yesterday? Google+ simply displays a running total. If you can tell not only how many new people you get each day, but also on what specific days you see a spike in new followers, you can take a closer look at what you did that day and duplicate those efforts.

This is why Measurement is one of my core philosophies, and why I’m so excited to tell you all about +CircleCount. These guys have put together an amazing tool that you can use to monitor your follower changes, analyze your own activity, and see how effective you have been at engaging your followers.
