    67. 67. Social Media Metrics<br />Measuring Qualitative success by the relationships to members<br />We are building better relationships with constituents by learning more about them to fine-tune Einstein’s focus and programs.<br />Messages delivered to the community are being shared member-to-member and with the outside world. <br />Blog posts are building momentum in the number of quality comments that give insight into supporters’ opinions.<br />Members are using the community to actively trade knowledge and insights and are meaningfully supporting fellow constituents’ concerns, passions and goals.<br />Source: Bob Cramer:<br />
    68. 68. Social Media Metrics<br />Measuring Qualitative success by the relationships to members<br />Such indicators reveal how well we are communicating with our members, and how well they are communicating back to us – and with each other. Again, all this points back to more engaged and passionate supporters, something essential to meeting fundraising goals.<br />Source: Bob Cramer:<br />
    69. 69. Social Media Metrics<br />Measuring Quantitative success, some possible metrics:<br />Increases in the number of people joining the community. <br />Increases in page views on our website, and in the average duration of site visits.<br />Conversion rates of member to member-donor.<br />Number of days from community registration to first donation.<br />Increases in donation averages, or in members who donate multiple times.<br />Source: Bob Cramer:<br />
    70. 70. Social Media and ROI (Return On Investment) <br />Social media networking is the process of interacting with other individuals through the specific social media tool or community. For example, you could talk to people with similar interests in a forum or communicate with them through a more fragmented platform like Twitter. <br />Whatever method you choose, there are usually four main goals:<br />Increased brand awareness. <br />Improved reputation. <br />Personal Development. <br />Relationships with benefits. <br /><br />
    71. 71. Increased Brand Awareness<br />You’re interacting with others on the social media channel in order to build awareness for your personal and business brand. You’re increasing your visibility in the right areas and trying to stick in the minds of others through active interaction on many different levels. From this perspective, networking also works to drive traffic back to your website.<br /><br />
    72. 72. Improved reputation<br />You want to improve how others think about your website so you hang out in forums or networking sites, in order to respond to feedback. You want to keep the communication channels open on all social media fronts. You may also want to improve your reputation as an expert by being consistently involved in discussions on topics that are relevant to your business or website.<br /><br />
    73. 73. Personal Development<br />Networking with the right people will keep you in the loop on industry happenings and will also improve your knowledge levels. A big part of networking is observation. Seeing how others reflect or participate in conversations is a great way to improve your own experience in the field. <br /><br />
    74. 74. Relationships with Benefits<br />One can network with others with the aim of extracting future benefits such as testimonials, links or recommendations. Others are more likely to provide you with a benefit when you’ve taken the effort to interact with them. Networking is a way to build relationships that can be mutually beneficial. <br /><br />
