  6. 6. Three Little Letters … ROI • If you do not have the ability to track social reach and engagement, conversations, influencers, membership acquisitions, purchase via social platforms, don’t do anything else until you do. • Use campaign codes. Know where engagement is coming from and where it’s been. • Sure you had 1.5 million YouTube views but what did that get you? • Know your influencers. Create profiles. • Do you know what sticks? • Make sure company/organization leaders know what the investment is and expected return. Don’t assume they know.
  7. 7. Takeaways• Track, track, track. No metrics, no knowledge.• Encourage sharing.• Editorial calendar.• Plan ahead.• Cross-promote!• If you fail, fail hard.• All content is local, so keep it local• Have a sense of humor.
