    • Free Tools for Social Media (research and measurement)
    • i’m a consultant at social media agency nixonmcinnes hello! I’m Beth Granter
    • NixonMcInnes clients
    • Why free tools? — Useful for pitch research, & to validate plans — Good when budgets are low — Good in addition to paid tools
    • I’m going to talk about my toolbox — Tools I use for research — Tools I use for measurement — What and how, not so much why
    • Tools for research — To find people — To rank influencers — To find conversations, themes — To plan when to act and what to say
    • Tools for measurement — To baseline, assess current amount of buzz — To track changes — Specific to platform vs generic
    • Google’s search filters — Blogs — Discussions — Length
    • Google Insights: to check timing & popularity of terms
    • Google Insights part 2: to check folksonomy & regional interest
    • Google Wonder Wheel: to explore & represent related searches
    • Google Ad Planner: to understand audience behaviours, types of sites visited E.g. Gathering advice from forums and blogs Socialising on Facebook Shopping for food and household items Researching property & holidays Reading news Watching TV programmes Paying bills
    • Complex searches in Twellow Location & bio search, & follow directly on the page E.g. search ("united kingdom" | UK) ("football" | "footy”)
    • Filter by type in Samepoint
      • Grab RSS feed of results
      • At a glance sentiment (questionable reliability?)
    • Tracking buzz with Samepoint Track number of results (before, during & after campaign)
    • Sort delicious links by popularity Greasemonkey plugin for Firefox
    • Facebook Insights — Contact acquisition (total fans) — Engagement (interactions)
    • Facebook Insights — Audience insights (demographics)
    • Socialmention for research Filter, subscribe to RSS & export CSV
    • Socialmention for measurement
    • (if you’re in a hurry)
    • Popularity vs influence Source: Onalytica
    • Popularity vs influence
    •  
    • Twitter grader to find influence path
    • If you want even more Twitter metrics…
    • Firefox plugin for Google PageRank, Alexa & Compete stats while you browse
      • Measures social media influence of an individual or brand, based on:
        • Popularity (who you know and the extent of your online network)
        • Impact (how much people listen to you online)
        • Activity (how active you are online)
        • Individuality (how easy you are to find online according to your name etc.)
      • Numerical values, e.g. x blog posts in the last month, fed into a vector that partially normalises over the user population, to get a final score. Like Google's PageRank
    •  
    •  
    • Google Analytics Advanced Segments
    • Google Analytics Advanced Segments Use segments to exclude other ad streams, e.g. banner ads Then look at behaviour e.g. time on site
    • Baseline & measure with search engine results
    • Keeping track of blogger/forum outreach
