    • Marketing Media Channels (h) 
    • Potential Loss (from previous chart h)  Total leads from online media (excluding “other” and “email”) = 37%  Without Social Media, there’s an 8% loss of total leads  SEO results, excluding social media, could be half as effective: •  We know some % of SEO leads are achieved with a page rank via network effects comprising multiple Web sites and Social Media. •  We know that at bare minimum, 8% of total leads are visiting Social Media (hence increasing SEO page rank). •  We know that SEO organic listings results (driving hits) are completely determined by page rank (& keywords). •  If the impact were 1:1, then ½ of the 16% SEO leads would have been enabled by Social Media marketing.
    • Potential Gain (h)  Another way to look at it…  If 16% of leads are yielded from Social Media (8% Social Media results + ½ of 16% SEO results)…  And if doing no Social Media mktg currently…  By adding it to mktg plan, we could potentially achieve a 19% increase in total leads! •  (Assuming currently operating at 84% leads-potential by neglecting Social Media, 100% / 84% = 1.19 multiple. 1.19 x 16% Social Media impact = 19% increase in leads.)
    • Company Impact Example (no Social Media mktg) i • Leverage Testimonials • Customer References • Online Community • BLOGS • Newsletters • Communicate through Partners
    • Company Alternative Potential Gain (i)  10% of respondents heard of SMC conference from Web site.  If those site hits occurred from search engine organic listings, that could potentially double (according to previous slide data & math; irrespective here of PPC hits).  3% of respondents heard of SMC conference from “Other;” including “Online Community,” “Blogs,” “Customer References” and “Communicate through Partners.”  If these responses represent half of “Other” total awareness leads (1.5%), they could double via Social Media involvement – giving more leads in addition to increased search leads (11.5% more awareness leads total).  Imagine if these percentages were applied to our product lead and development cycle - double the leads from Web media (irrespective of PPC)!
    • If Competitors are in Social Media, but Company isn’t…   There are customers whose preferred channels of communications are social media.   Those are leads competitors obtain and company misses.   Competitors have uncontested voice, via those 16% leads-generating channels, to steal business away.
    • Features/Benefits cont’d  Video upload & Web site widget •  YouTube  Image sharing •  Flickr  User-specified RSS feeds •  Difference from EMBs •  Press releases •  “Following” defined •  Twitter
    • Who Does Social Media Advertising? (j)   The top 16 IT companies (by revenue) were researched over 3 days for Web 2.0 promotions.   These were mainly B2B – or, like Microsoft and Adobe, had B2B as well as consumer faces.   Resulting 65% representation in the measured Web 2.0 media channels .   (100% would have equaled each company, with 1 promotion, in each media channel – or, “Total Investigations.”)Web2.0 ads‐Top 16 IT companies Social Networking Software Virtual  LinkedIn FaceBook MySpace Totals: Weblog submission sites Tagging Media Worlds Web 2.0 Media channels Custom pg (organic) Custom pg (organic) Custom pg (organic) Custom pg total: Network Totals: Digg TOTAL: flickr TOTAL: Second LifeTotals: PPC ads PPC ads PPC ads PPC ad totals: Technorati Total Promotions: 15 3 19 3 7 6 41 12 53 6 10 16 12 15 27 19 115 Total Promotions Total investigations: 16 16 16 16 16 16 48 48 96 16 16 32 16 16 32 16 176 Total investigations
