For example, if you look at total attendee sharing, 60% of sharing occurs after the purchase. One in 100 people who look at an event page before purchase share it, while 1 in 10 share it after purchase. And a post- purchase share drives 20% more ticket sales than a pre-purchase share.” − Tamara Mendelsohn, VP Marketing 39

  • 41. A Holistic Strategy 41
  • 42. Final Thoughts 1. Think from the customer in, not the organization out • Holistic view of customer drives ‘real-time’ and ‘right-time’ engagement; requires ability to see cause and effect 2. Social data is “Big Data” • Embracing volumes, variety, and velocity of social data will help prepare organizations for other data streams to come 3. This will drive organizational change • Consider the HiPPO phenomenon and democratization of decision-making based on data (vs. intuition) 4. Making real-time real • With existing data types and the advent of news technologies, social data integration is real, and happening now. 42
