1.Set Up

There are already many different ways to gather these numbers, but Wordsmith puts them all into one place for you. Setting up a Wordsmith account is simple. It allows you to start with merging your Google analytics, Adwords and Facebook analytics accounts. You can then personalize the account to use your brand or your client’s branded logos and colors for the reports Wordsmith will generate. You can then decide how often you want Wordsmith to create reports: weekly, monthly or quarterly.

2. Pulling Data

Once all your accounts are synced with Wordsmith, it is ready to start automatically pulling reports. Wordsmith searches for trends in the data, finding patterns or outliers and other things you might miss if you’re trying to get your reports done as quickly as possible. It then organizes all its findings into written reports, just as you would write it out to explain these numbers to your clients. Wordsmith breaks everything down into categories, such as social media, SEO, advertising, content marketing, etc. Wordsmith will also make recommendations based on the data it finds and incorporate these into the reports.

3. Edit Report

Once Wordsmith is done collecting the data and putting it into a written report, it will send you a copy of the report for you to edit. You are able to make changes to anything in the report, add information from other sources, or even take out things you don’t want included in that report.

4.Final Report

After all changes have been made and the report is ready to be delivered to the client, Wordsmith will package and send the branded PDF report right to the client, from your email. With the help of Wordsmith, you can spend less time creating and packaging these reports and, instead, focus on strategy and project execution for your clients.
