Define Metrics Before Strategies More Directly Financial Financial: Risk Mitigation: •Sales •Decrease cost of future •Leads reputation crises •Costs saved •Share of wallet •Decreased return rates •Media mix modelingShort LongTerm Term Digital: Brand: •Clicks •Awareness •SEO •Consideration •Traffic •Intent •Fans •NPS/Advocacy •Engagements •RTs Less Directly Financial
Examples of Financial Metrics In December 2009, Dell announced it had measured through trackable links $6.5m in revenue from its @DellOutlet Twitter handle. Petco.com found that products with reviews have return rates that are 20% lower than those without reviews — and the return rate is 45% lower for products with more than 25 reviews — saving on shipping, restocking, and customer service costs. One financial services firm used Media Mix Optimization to discover social media contributed 1.3% of its insurance, 1.5% of its credit cards and 3.1% of its bank products volume.
Examples of Brand Metrics Secret implemented “Let Her Jump,” a petition to allow female ski jumping in the Winter Olympics. The brand used a combination of online surveys of Facebook users and Nielsen Brand Lift surveys to discover that the belief that Secret deodorant works better than other deodorants increased 8 points and purchase intent jumped 11%. Bank of America used its private online community of high school students, the Student Pulse, to learn about high school students relationship with their finances. Insights garnered from community helped BAC to increase unaided brand awareness 30%, brand favorability 40% and brand consideration 13%.
