  • Edison Research - The Social Media Research Authority• The effectiveness of social media must be measured both online AND offline to truly track how the social presence of a brand influences a consumer’s decision-making process.• Social Media Monitoring alone can provide metrics like share of conversation, and possibly even online sentiment, but offline measures should also be incorporated to gauge the linkage between sentiment and to determine the actual value social media efforts have for brands.• Edison’s custom social media research process provides a true measure of the return on social media engagement - online, and at the cash register.• Visit www.edisonresearch.com/social_media_research.php for more! © 2011 Edison Research/Arbitron Inc.
