  • 7. Key Tactic
    What is your hub (website or fan page)?
    Your social media efforts need to revolve around pointing users back to that hub.
  • 8. “ROI”
    Return on Investment - What does this mean to you?
    What are we measuring?
    Return = ?
    Behavior
    Contribution
    Purchase
    Investment =?
    Time
    Opportunity
    Money
  • 9. Attaching Social Effort to the ‘Return’
    Most Social Media ROI is going to be intangible
    … We think that's OK and expected.
  • 10. Metrics to Track
    • What percentage of your audience is engagingwith you?
    • 11. Is your online audience growing?
    Specifically is it growing in meaningful ways?
    • Are you getting website traffic from social networks?
    • 12. Is the volume &frequency of conversationsabout your cause growing?
  • Tip 1: Measure Against Your Own Growth
  • 13. Tip 2: Increase Conversations in Meaningful Ways
  • 14. Tip 3: Measure Success of Social Networks as Traffic Sources
  • 15. Tip 3: Measure Potential Virality / Reach
    How many people are spreading/owning your message, and how far is the message reaching?
  • 16. If it’s all about engagement….
    How do you determine what works and what doesn’t in a ‘one to one’ engagement world?
    … when your audience is many
    … and there is only one of you
    … (or less)
  • 17. …kind of makes you feel like this mule.
  • 18. With current established networks and the growing presence of more venues on a regular basis – management for consistency, efficiency, and promptness become critical.
    But How?
    More People
    Tools
    Maybe both…
  • 19. It is being done…
  • 20. Exceptionally well…
    Social media is ideal for Not-for-profit organizations, people want to get behind causes, and they want to do it publicly.
    charity:water Success
