Thanks to improved measurement tools, it is now standard among social strategists to present hard data on ROI and build strategies backed by statistics and charts - a far cry from the early years of social media. But while this data makes for great PowerPoints, concerns remain that numbers don't tell the whole story. What does "reach" really mean? Can influencers really be ranked on a single numerical spectrum?

Enter predictive analytics: Advocates suggest that simply pulling numbers from Big Data tools isn't enough - you need to match the data to the story that you are trying to tell, and liberate information from what Wes Nichols calls "swim lanes". Each piece of an organization has a different picture of the data, and only combined do they provide meaningful lessons.

This webinar is designed as a heart-to-heart conversation about the right and wrong ways to make use of predictive analytics.

  • The way we go about our lead generation campaigns is we base them on a Unified strategy- we determine the goals of the client and these can be refined once we discuss a little more but then we also factor in the purpose of the potential leads who are seeking information. People are coming to Social Media Today to get information and make their business better. They are looking for a solution. Jive can be that solutionWe can guarantee the Social Media Today leads are better qualified because of the quality of the content, and the unique vision that understands what business you are in and what you are trying to achieve. We are not trying to simply deliver leads, we are trying to cultivate relationships and connect you to real customers.

  • We’d love to propose a content hub as a way to organize this lead generation campaign for Jive. The content hub can be specific to each of the verticals you are looking to focus on or can be more general to incorporate all three verticals and maybe more as the campaign grows. We envision leveraging existing Jive eBooks, whitepapers, and webinars to begin lead generation immediately (in the next few slides, I’ll show you how Oracle does this)

  • Also applies to fraud detection. If your contacts commit fraud, so might you.In fact, one fraud scheme can't be detected without social data. A group of criminals open financial accounts that improve their respective credit ratings by transferring funds among themselves. Since the money transfers take place only between these accounts, the fraudsters need not spend any real money in conducting these transactions; they play their own little zero-sum game. Once each account has built up its own supposedly legitimate record, they strike, taking out loans, grabbing the money, and running. These schemes can be detected only by way of social data to reveal that the network of transactors is a closed group.
