  • 1. Measuring and Capturing the Value of Digital Communications<br />GovDelivery Event<br />February 3, 2011<br />
  • 2. What Matters to Your Agency?<br />Mission Results<br />Clicks, Opens, Subscribers, Page Views<br />2<br />
  • 3. “You can’t manage what you don’t measure.”<br />You can’t measure everything in $<br />3<br />"Most people I've known in the private sector are just much too accustomed to linear processes where they're clear decision makers and they make a decision and things more or less then happen.  In government, the decisions you make very often are much less direct in their effect." <br />Robert Rubin<br />Former U.S. Secretary of Treasury <br />“Our ROI is more lives saved and less property and fewer homes destroyed or damaged.”<br />Eugene Luke, Emergency Management Specialist, FEMA<br />
  • 4. The Scientific Formula for Measuring Mission Value from Digital Communications<br />4<br />
  • 5. Where to Start?<br />Easy<br />Value Created<br />Engagement:<br />What is the value of each connection we’re making? <br />Effectiveness:<br />What is our total reach?<br />Efficiency:<br />What was the total cost of the communication?<br />Net Value<br />5<br />

  • 29. And more…</li></ul>7<br />Upstream Metrics<br />Easy to measure, but only the communications and Web team care… clicks, opens, subscribers, followers, friends, visits, etc.<br />Downstream Metrics<br />These really matter, but they are super hard to measure.<br />
  • 30. Connecting Upstream to Downstream… Start with Logic<br />More Rain Upstream…<br />Means Deeper Water Downstream<br />8<br />
  • 31. Private Sector, Non-Profits, Politicians use Simple $ Metrics<br />9<br />“The value of an email address to a knowledgeable marketer is $118. ”<br /> -Stan Rapp, former CEO of McCann Relationship Marketing<br />“ Online revenue per usable email address for a non-profit is $3.36 - $27.56.”<br /> Source: Convio Benchmarking Study<br />
  • 32. Mission (im)Possible in Public Sector<br />10<br /><ul><li>Use targeted surveys online:
  • 33. “Did you take a flu shot after visiting our website?”
  • 34. “Did your experience on our website impact your decision to get a flu shot?”
  • 35. Use them offline:</li></ul>“What sources of information caused you to get a flu shot?”<br /><ul><li>Find other points of correlation. Example: “Do you trust the information you see on Healthagency.gov?”
  • 36. Use logic!</li></ul>Why? <br />Judge outreach in real-time based on upstream metrics that can be tracked because you know they impact downstream metrics that drive mission value.<br />
  • 37. Go Back to Real Objectives in Everything You Report and Share<br />11<br />To Mission Results<br />From Nerd Metrics<br />We are increasing flu vaccinations by getting >25,000 people/day to view flu information online<br />Page Views are Up<br />Subscriber #s Just Passed 100,000<br />We are improving regulatory compliance by directly reaching 100,000 stakeholders with each new regulation<br />We responded directly to comments through social media and redirected responders to where they were most needed<br />We have 5,000 Followers on Twitter and 2,000 Fans in Facebook<br />

What I’ve Learned<br />It’s REALLY REALLY Hard<br />There’s a talent/skill<br />There’s a methodology and rigor<br />Difference between Doing it and Doing it Well<br />Lots of optimization opportunities <br />Hard to be consistent<br />Great communication key to driving real results for organizations<br />
