GetSocial is an all-in-one suite for content performance analytics and distribution. A platform that will help you easily identify which content, pages and/or products are generating the most shares and which social media networks you should invest in to increase ROI. 

GetSocial tracks both public and private/dark social shares like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, email, and Slack to give you full visibility into where and how people are sharing your content. Dark Social Shares can represent up to 98% of all shares, depending on your content type. 

You'll also be able to see how many referrals those shares generated, allowing for better attribution and decision making.

You can choose GetSocial from four different editions. Here's an overview of each of them:

  • GetSocial Tools is best suited for businesses looking to add share/follow buttons to their website and track basic analytics.
  • GetSocial Start is best for businesses focused on growing their traffic through their content. It provides more advanced analytics, including dark social shares and referrals (data that is misattributed in other analytics platforms). It also helps with content distribution with link shortening, social media automation, and viral alerts.
  • GetSocial Grow is optimal for those who need to manage multiple clients at the same time and that require more firepower for their strategies. More alerts means that they can be on top of what’s happening across clients, in real-time. Custom Reporting provides white-labeled editable reports and conversions allows them to put a $ value to their work. 
  • GetSocial Expand is the prime tier from our solution. This is the next step in social analytics, providing unlimited domains, alerts, and automation rules. You also get access to our Influencer module and to our API to integrate directly with your systems.

What is Dark Social?
Dark social describes the “invisible” shares and referrals that happen through channels like messengers, but also email and text messages. Imagine you just shared a Vendasta page with a friend via WhatsApp. You just did a Dark Social share. If your friend clicks on that link, she is a Dark Social referral. For the Vendasta team, that referral will come up as “direct,” even though she didn’t type the whole link into your browser. They won’t know where you got the deal from, making dark social a form of referral traffic that is attributed to the wrong channel. You can learn more about Dark Social in this link:
What kind of data is tracked by the analytics?

GetSocial tracks all the social traffic and interactions happening on a website: shares made through the social buttons and by copy-pasting the URL, as well as the traffic resulting from those shares. The way our analytics track data allows a proper attribution of Dark Social traffic, which means it is accurately identified in the analytics that certain shares happen on Dark Social channels.

However, no personal data is tracked, so this solution can be safely used on privacy-sensitive websites, such as healthcare businesses.
