  • 4. Introduction to Social Web Analytics If you could go back to the mid-90s and offer a marketer a little box that could sit on her desk and let her listen in on thousands of customer conversations and participate in those discussions regardless of geography or time zone, it would appear so far-fetched that she’d probably call security. This eBook is about that reality.
  • 5. The Need for Measuring the Social Web
    • The social web is all about building and expanding relationships
    • Since this all takes place online, it can be measured so you can listen, learn and respond to the conversations
    • Every company will have their own needs for adopting social media measurement
    • Primary Drivers
      • Listen and Participate
      • Brand Perception
      • Measurement & Evaluation
      • Market Research
  • 6. 1. Listen and Participate
    • The emergence of social web has made communications with influencers a two-way dialogue
    • Opens the door for you to gain the insight on the forces in your market
    • Social Web Analysis technologies filter the millions of web conversation to identify the ones that are relevant and meaningful
    • These tools enable you to:
      • Easily monitor what millions are saying about you and your market
      • Participate in the conversations wherever they occur
      • Shape those conversations by facilitating conversation in your own community
  • 7. Creating a Personalized “MyChannel”
    • Social web technologies have enabled the evolution of “MyChannel”

    • Compiled from:
      • Your RSS newsfeeds
      • Subscriptions to friends’ news
      • Automated sharing of recommendations
    • The Implications of MyChannel:
    • Increased fragmentation of your target audience

      • How it compares to your competitors
  • 9. 3. Measurement & Evaluation of PR
    • Analysis of social media discussions provides some valuable insight in the effectiveness of a PR campaign
    • Since Google indexes most of the web it can provide some insight, but there are shortcomings
