Tracking success on social media messaging isn't that different from tracking the success of your other support channels (phone, email, or live chat).

Average response time is a major metric and goal that social media support teams should use. You should know how long it takes for a rep to respond to a customer's message on social media and how long it takes to solve the issue.

Ultimately, this will help you keep track of reply wait times, time to first response, and resolution rates of your social media supportinquiries. This is important because 79% of customers expect a response within 24 hours of reaching out to a brand on social media, and 40% expect a response within an hour.

Customer sentiment is a metric that many social media tools keep track of based on mentions and conversations online. 

If you provide poor customer support on social media, you'll receive negative mentions and vice versa. The better support, the more positive mentions. 

Tracking success will help us strategize and decide how to use our social media support team in the future as digital channels become a primary way for customers to reach out to a company.
