If your goal is to raise brand awareness, then the objective is to reach a larger audience. Tracking brand mentions and utilizing client information can enhance sales. You can monitor consumer information by tracking the amount of sign-ups and downloads. If the goal is to increase engagement, then you can use social media reports to track the number of likes, shares, comments, etc. These different goals help in defining your target audience.
