    • Many companies are stumbling blindly into social media marketing without a measurement strategy in place
  • The Numbers are Telling…
    • “ While 2009 may have been a “trial” run for many brands and social media, in 2010, CMOs expect social initiatives to directly impact their bottom lines, without exception.”

    • In 2009, 89% of CMOs tracked social media's impact by using standard metrics such as site traffic, pageviews, and number of fans.
