  • What I won’t mention are TOOLS. To be fair and not bias any opinions.There’s many, search the web for social media measurement tools, ask me outside of this session.
  • Who is actively using social media for business?KEEP UP: Trying to do something useful, not just mindless messages to be noticedSTILL UP: Are you actively measuring dollars generated or saved, directly from Soc. Media?
  • Do you hear these questions? Ask?
  • Is how many followers a valid metric?Content re-sharing: What does it mean?What is Engagement?How much money do you make from social media interaction? That’s why we’re here!
  • Is there meaningful communication?How do you quantify that? Ever tell your boss …100 more followers?What does he say back?
  • That’s because they want something real to defend you “playing” online.
  • KEYWORD:“that was really great” vs. “that was really great.” Stream of mentions – having a bad day?Social profile: if it’s b2b, now what? Author’s frequency. Considering keywords, morning routines, starbucks could be in troubleThe more expensive the tool, the better the quality. Still the “best guess” method.
  • But that still doesn’t really help the boss.Give you good feedback, maybe saves you money on focus groups or brand surveys but…
  • Investment: Hire, spend time to commit to socialAction: Tweeting, developing apps, blogging, etc.Reaction: People consuming the contentNon-Financial Impact: Subscribes, likes, mentions, retweets, click-thrus, follows, etc.Financial Impact: Purchasing, joining a list, clicking ads, - Can also include: Awareness and recognition –long-term--> sales (store/online)CHANGE SLIDE: Talk Non-financial Impact!!
  • This is yourQUALitative. Your “that’s nice” data.
  • This is your SHOW ME THE MONEY data.
  • Jenny, Beth and Jim – Speaking about customer service
  • How do you get
  • If your goal is to generate revenue or to reduce operating expenses, measure against it!SPIT out good metrics!Simple – not complicated. Stay away from combining data and random ratiosPertinent – relevant to demonstrating the business objectivesTimely – What happens today is different than what happened just 48 hours ago. Measure weekly, at a minimum, keep trendsInstantly Useful – I should read the metric, maybe some trend data for context, but should just know.Segment: HR interactions aren’t buyers. Don’t say 20% of our followers purchased. Say 80% of the people who intended to buy, bought!
