How To Use Google Analytics for Same-Day Content Promotion

One of the top questions in social media marketing (and content marketing in general) is, how do you know what content is worth promoting? Will a blog post go viral? Is a tweet less or more likely to work? Predicting the future is difficult, expensive work. It’s certainly possible, using predictive analytics, to get a rough sense of what might work and what might not work, but few companies have access to that much technology and expertise.

Instead, most marketers look back at their analytics at the end of the week, month, or quarter. This makes taking advantage of trending content difficult. What if there were a way, if not to predict the future, to at least have an early warning system about what content you should promote? You can have that, and you only need Google Analytics and an alarm clock to do it.

Often times I bring this type of topic up when covering the value of college in the real world....nice to see some study behind it.
 
In case you were wondering about the value of EQ and IQ, here are some numbers that illuminate reality.....

If you are a parent, like I'm lucky to be, this is also food for thought when it comes to balancing school grades at the cost of other things....

I certainly believe this to be true. However, it's important not to lose sight of the fact that many opportunities will never be given to you without that magic piece of paper from a decent school. If you can't even get an interview, you will never get a chance to exhibit those other great qualities.
