  • 9. What are your Goals?
    • Not all of your goals will have a monetary value.
    • What actions are customers taking as a result of reading or engaging with you?
    • Are customers buying your products?
    • Are customers telling you about their needs?
    • Are customers requesting to speak with someone from your company?
    • Are customers willing to provide testimonials and referrals to you? Ambassadors?
    • This information can be invaluable to your business!
  • 10. How will you Measure?
    • There are several tools that measure different things:
    • Traffic (Google Analytics or some other system) -- here you may look at new vs. returning visitors, time spent on the site, number of pages viewed and learn if your social media site is sticky.
    • Influence as in reach (FeedBurner RSS -- important enough to be considered separately as they go beyond reach, they show the reader is vested in some way with the content).
    • Influence as in volume (all the social networks, Technorati, company articles submitted to social bookmarking like Digg,, etc.) -- you may know that the inbound links Technorati counts expire every six months. To be counter properly you also need to make sure your domain is mapped correctly.
    • Influence (Google Alerts) -- mentioned elsewhere but not linked 
  • 11. Metrics Examples
    • I recommend you pick 3-4 different key performance indicators.
    • Here are some examples of metrics for a blog:
    • 25.6% returning visitors and 74.4% new;
    • 3:25 avg. time on the site
    • 30,520 visits in the last 4 months
    • 989 RSS subscribers
    • 25 live hits in between 7-12 minutes
    • PR6 -- Google PageRank
    • 1,904 comments on 375 posts -- 5:1 ratio
    • 99 trackbacks
    • 568 authority or links back to the site in the last six months (Technorati)
    • Between 40-45% of visitors find this blog through organic searches and an average of 34% come here from other sites.
  • 12. Blogs
    • Technorati indexes:
    • 112 million blogs
    • 120,000 new ones are popping up each day
    • Only 11% have posted within the past 2 months
    • Some of these blogs could be talking about your business, engaging your employees, or leaking those merger discussions you thought were hush-hush.
    • How will you get involved?

    • Twitter is a site/service where you send messages (max 140 characters).  The messages can be submitted via the web, SMS, IM, or some third-part clients.  People add you as a “friend” or “follow” you and receive your tweets as you send them.
