  • I find this presentation very illustrative and interesting. For some of us who don't have marketing knowledge, sometimes it's hard to find ways to measure our MarCom efforts. Thanks for sharing it!

ROI should always be tied to $$$“Social Media ROI reflects any other marketing-related ROI:the net financial revenue to the organization from the effort,after having accounted for the efforts costs. FI-NAN-CIALmoneydoughbottom linecoinor, as I like to call it,ROI”- Chris Bevolo (www.ChrisBevolo.com) 22

  33. 33. AVE (Advertising Value Equation) We cant show substantive correlation between AVE and how much is earned – let alone the impact on customer behavior. 33
  34. 34. Viral promotion of back pain lecture Potential ROI calculation:• Total reach of the program: 200K impressions • 10% of actual audience will see the message*: 20,000 people • 20% of those seeing the message will find it relevant*: 4,000 • 10% of those finding it relevant will want to learn more*: 400• 10% of those with interest will have surgery: 40• Average contribution margin for spine surgery/rehab: $20,000• Total cost to promote program: fixed (let’s say $2000)* Assumptions from historic patterns or industry-accepted response rates 34
