    10:15 Case Study: Implementing Metrics to Measure ROI on Your Social Media Tools
    Q: Aligning your measurement strategy with your social media goals
    A: depending on your goals then different things to measure. We will take a look at some of that but go a step further and talk about business goals
    Q: Selecting the metrics appropriate for each social media tool (Tweetdeck, Google Analytics, etc.)
    A:actually we look more at metrics in relation to what you are trying to achieve versus social media tools
    Q: Examining the benefits and pitfalls of measuring social media in-house versus outsourcing to an agency
    A: I suppose it really depends and is likely going to involve a combination of efforts and data collection/analysis
    Q: What are the human resources required to have a robust measurement practice?
    A: All depends, size of business, size of social program, where you going. Measurement is part of practically everything at Dell and baked into everything

  • Data from the Social Web is Not Fully Applied…
    Statistically significant, Huge Global Sample Size, Unaided, Robust
    Canada’s Internet population is growing - by 2013, it will hit 25.9 million, or nearly 75% of the entire nation.
    Many of these people are among the world’s most committed Internet users, spending 45 hours or more online each month
    Not making use of it…
    Large use of social Web for simple visibility, awareness. Measurement often relies on traffic counts, and neglect analyzing the messages being communicated.
    75 % of companies surveyed didn’t know where their most valuable customers were talking about them

  • 17. McKinsey Research:The promise of the social media is being deliveredIncidental valuePromise + Metrics + Results ≠ ROI
    Of those surveyed, 69 percent of respondents report their companies have gained measurable business benefits
    Benefits include: innovative products and services, more effective marketing, better access to knowledge, lower cost of doing business, and higher revenues.
    Companies making greatest use of the technologies report even greater benefits. Successful companies integrate Web 2.0 technologies with work flows to create a “networked company,” linking themselves with customers and suppliers

  • 46. Forging New Paths…Be Responsible
    At the very beginning of exploration/journey through new territory: Limits between private and public data are unchartered territory, still being defined on a case-by-case basis. Businesses, customers, social networks, technology developers, parents, children – together will set precedents/define the future.
    Availability/Access to rich information/ data is premised on trust…use in unexpected ways risk losing that trustTechnical safeguards may be sound, but unintended “leaks” create a severe disruption of social expectations …
