  6. 6. Who is Measuring ROI?
  7. 7. Analyzing Results and Producing ROI <ul><li>What are we really trying to measure? </li></ul><ul><li>Return on Engagement:  How much time have you spent conversing online and what direct and indirect results have occurred? </li></ul><ul><li>Return on Participation:  The metric tied to measuring and valuing the time spent participating in social media through conversations; can be challenging to measure. </li></ul><ul><li>Return on Involvement:  Similar to participation, exploring touch points. What were the experiences at each stage? Did they lead to recent or future sales? </li></ul><ul><li>Return on Attention:  Everyone is fighting not only to get attention but keep it over a sustainable period of time. These metrics may take longer to measure. </li></ul><ul><li>Return on Trust:   Measuring customer loyalty and the likelihood for referrals. This is one of the real measuring sticks for early adopters of ROI tracking. Developing advocates will be demonstrated through their referring frequency. </li></ul>
  8. 8. *Intelligence Gathering <ul><li>This is where you gather the numbers that will let you know how your campaign is doing and where the dollars are. There are a lot of tools that will provide pretty dashboards but few that provide useful data. Here are some of the tools we recommend: </li></ul><ul><li>Google Analytics: Google Analytics is the analytics system in most companies. You can track visits, page views, bounce rates, etc. Be sure, if sales are a key metric, that the e-commerce portion is activated. </li></ul><ul><li>Coremetrics: Along with their benchmarking services Coremetrics offers an analytics suite whose main differentiator rests in what they call their LIVE (Lifetime Individual Visitor Experience) Profiles. This is essentially an analytics expansion on the concept of customer types. </li></ul><ul><li>Fireclick: Owned by Digital River, is a streamlined version of many of the tools available for free through Google Analytics but in an easier to customize interface. The main advantage here is their Advanced Marketing Suite which ties you into other vendors and components in the Digital River portfolio. </li></ul><ul><li>Radian6: Radian6 is a buzz monitoring software that allows you to monitor certain keyword sets and capture data around them. The data includes such things sentiment, engagement, reach, and inbound links. It also allows you to port that data to your CRM. </li></ul><ul><li>* As discussed in Sexy Numbers: Measuring ROI in Social Media Campaigns </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>March 1st, 2010 by Angel Djambazov </li></ul></ul></ul>

  14. 14. True Test of Social Media ROI <ul><li>As stated by Brian Solis </li></ul><ul><li>“ Defining the “R” in ROI is where we need to focus, as it relates to our business goals and performance indicators specifically. Even though much of social media is free, we do know the cost of engagement as it relates to employees, time, equipment, and opportunity cost (what they’re not focusing on or accomplishing while engaging in social media). Tying those costs to the results will reveal a formula for assessing the “I” as investment.” </li></ul><ul><li>Brian Solis  is a principal at new media agency  FutureWorks </li></ul>
