  • 88. Example checklist of well executed measurement For online businesses:  Measure causal actions (activities, transactions).  Measure the change in traffic over time and whether the ratio of “organic traffic” changes in relation to other social media activity.  Compare change in social traffic to other channels. For offline businesses:  Focusing on “softer metrics” like achieving greater brand awareness, customer advocacy and content ‘pass-along’.  If you get sales that don’t come directly from the web, like from CSR’s, look to co-relate factors that align with long term business success. Example: changes in the top ten questions CRS spend time on and whether this increases or decreases CSR efficiency. social3i Proprietary and Confidential 88

  • 113. Develop Internal Best Practices Documents Example: Best Practices for Company Blogging Tip #1. Recruit multiple bloggers Effective blogs are updated frequently. But many small marketing teams struggle to find the time to continually feed the beast. Having multiple contributors ensures your blog will be a compilation of multiple viewpoints and relevant expertise that attracts a variety of readers. Tip Tip #2. Enforce regular posting Maintaining a consistent schedule is essential to a successful blogging strategy. Get the CEO on board. Tip #3. Share metrics and reward success Run internal contests to single out the blogger whose post was shared the most. Shares the metrics from the team’s blogging and social efforts to show the rest of the company how important their contributions are.
