Zappos as a company measures the social media return on the parameters of culture and service. They don’t calculate it’s ROI on sales as they don’t consider it a traditional marketing channel. Zappos is clearly the new generation company which is forging a new era of business. They are just not selling products but they are engaging customer They are making personal and emotional connections.
