  • THE PEOPLE is INTERNET= And the internet can’t exist without people. The market is people Pre 2007- maintstream media controls majority of influence, credibility and exposure and now the futur Post 2007: Creators of Social Media begin to enjoy increased visibility, credibility and audience exposure. Is this some kind of joke? No it is not? It is happening right now. What will you do if you were given 500 bucks and you are told to buy a product that you never heard of at all? You Google!, you ask questions in forum to strangers, you read review of the internet because you know that they are HONEST opinions and NOT PAID OPINIONS. They are COMMENT/REMARKS and NOT ADVERTISING!!!
  • In a nutshell, Social Media is online technologies and practices that people use to share opinions, insights, experiences, and perspectives with each other.
  • When a consumer is happy, they come back for more, they share with their friends, they are evangelist, eventually they SHOUT even louder when company value their thoughts and allow them to feel belong, a sense of ownership of the brands. Look at APPLE, before IPOD was out, everyone is talking about it, anticipate for IPOD because behind all this exist a community, a community of brand advocates! Speaking of functional attributes, doesn’t other products like SAMSUNG, IRIVER serves the same functional attributes, but why are they people still saying that they prefer more of IPOD than these brands!.. How is this applied to the social media? Social media allows participation in a community. People interacts in the community, interactions is conversation, conversation are word of mouth. They bring their knowledge to the reality and spread it out. Research says 70% of Word of mouth are done offline.! The web gives them a TOPIC, an Insight, a News to talk about.
  • Faced with too much choice, too much media, too much marketing, consumers are effectively, filtering or actively rejecting the onslaught. Through sharing and interaction, you can build a following that will help promote your products and services.
  • Many people are stuck in where they are. By spending minutes a day to brainstorm and some time on the weekends to blog about your passion and network, you will never know when opportunity knocks on your door and you may get noticed to do something you really like doing. There is always something better out there, you will need to have the drive to want it and stand out from the crowd.
  • If you have YES for most of the answers to the above questions, you may be no better than a zombie.

    72. 81. “ A direct result of not tying activity to an end game, the ability to know what it is we want to measure before we engage. Doing so, allows us to define a strategy and a tactical plan to support activity that helps us reach our goals and objectives.” -- Brian Solis, author and principal of the FurtureWorks agency measuring ROI
    73. 82. Brian Solis’s ROAD
    74. 83. Popularity Many companies engage in social media, and most like to use some form of popularity matrix to measure ROI. Words like engagement, participation, and involvement became key terms for defining online interactions with consumers. Trust and affinity are used to measure the core group of followers. Of all these matrixes, you could measure the improvement in customer service. Both in terms of the increased ability for people to rate and review products, as well as the opportunity for customer service teams to engage and provide proactive response.
    75. 84. Measuring success Inability to measure ROI, lack of budget funding, and management resistance are barriers to companies implementing social media campaigns, and it is a great way of getting budget slashed.
    76. 85. “ I’ve seen multimillion-dollar print and television advertising initiatives get the green light because CMOs understood the media — and I’ve seen $10,000 social-media efforts scratched because execs didn’t get it. ”
    77. 86. Tips DISCOVER THE AVENTIS ADVANTAGE! Know Your End Game: As Brian Solis said defining your end game is necessary in order to be able to quantify results.  Know what are you trying to accomplish and how you want to try keep track of it all. Define Your Metrics: What metrics do you need to track to quantify results: Leads, Registration, Sales? Check Your Tracking: I can’t tell you how often a new client doesn’t have the right pixel/cookie set on the right confirmation page. If your success metric is sales make sure you’re not just tracking leads. This requires testing. Set Expectations: Benchmarking is great way for you and your CMO to have realistic expectations from a campaign. Fireclick and Coremetrics are two tools that can provide benchmarks based on industry averages related to conversion rates, cart abandonment, and other valuable data. They also allow you to pull data from a specific vertical.
    78. 87. Gather Intelligence Google Analytics: Google Analytics is the defacto analytics system in most companies. You can track visits, page views, bounce rates, etc. Be sure, if sales are a key metric, that the ecommerce portion is activated.
    79. 88. Gather Intelligence Coremetrics: Coremetrics Analytics provides the website analytics features you need to successfully acquire, convert, and retain high-value visitors and customers. * Marketing optimization: gain a 3D view of your marketing programs’ effectiveness across channels and over time, including which programs drive new visitors, trigger action, and influence visitor behavior. * Merchandising: increase initiation and decrease abandonment of key activities (shopping carts, booking travel, starting applications, completing registration, etc.) by automatically mapping product and promotional categories to website analytics reports * Content analysis: improve site navigation, content, and tools by knowing the value of page real estate and promotional effectiveness based on site goals

Smoothly uncover influencers, track and measure engagement and determine which conversations are having an impact online. Radian6 provides Web Analytics and CRM Integration.
    81. 90. Gather Intelligence Brantology : Brantology is an independent business and brand online intelligence service provider that combines technology, processes and trained staff to monitor your social media reach. (The main difference is they have a human vetting all your data)
    82. 91. Key Metrics
    83. 92. Understand Numbers <ul><li>Spotting Trends: Sometimes business get excited about high sales numbers while completely ignoring the fact they overspent to get those numbers. </li></ul><ul><li>Trends are a great way to spot deltas which often provide indicators of the health of campaign. Sample key trends are: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>number of prospects </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>number of transactions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>changes in repeat customers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>number of customer referrals </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>uplift in other marketing channels </li></ul></ul>
    84. 93. Look beyond your distributed sites With the amount of distribution sources available in social media always take time to see if elements of your campaign have been distributed beyond the initial sites you targeted. It will allow you to spot new opportunities to expand your campaigns.
