No notes for slide
  • Take some notes. Q&A at the end.
  • This is not a cheesy sales pitch on a product or software “that will solve all of your social media problems once and for all!”
  • This is not an energy packed presentation where I teach you how you can make millions of dollars with a new amazing fantastic business plan nobody has ever heard of!
  • Nor is it about Global Warming!
  • “Let me quickly tell you about me” My name is Chase Sagum…
  • So let’s first establish who we are essentially talking about when we say “Social Media”
  • And who could forget every woman's favorite?
  • The type of social media I am not talking about…
  • Different from marketing platforms of the past. Entirely controlled by the people instead of marketing organizations.
  • Value. Value. Value.
  • I believe that you can’t have one without the other. They NEED each other.
  • Tell story about University of Phoenix and the EDU Lead Gen market. You don’t want control of your message… you want people saying good things about you while you’re sleeping at night.
  • Sometimes just being involved in social media is enough of a differentiation between you and your competitors.
  • It’s not good enough any more to have just an “average” website. One Sharp Design plug-in.
  • Literally. All of them. As of June 2011 Twitter had 350 million users. As of Dec 2011 Facebook had 845 million ACTIVE users.
  • Some principles Social Media is built upon… without these you won’t succeed. Give Twitter example of these 3 in action.
  • Facebook and YouTube have built in analytics
  • Let’s talk about a few different ROI opportunities.
  • After $28 in Facebook Ads targeted towards Wal-Mart employees and a few YouTube Videos to go along with it… Orabrush lands a deal to have their product sold in over 3,500 stores nationwide.
  • Skyrocket helped me increase conversion rate from 1.23% to 2.21%. Results of A/B test after adding social icons.
  • Twitter note: using Ad.ly, Sponsored Tweets and MyLikes.
  • “Precise Interest” targeting is what it’s called in Facebook
  • What’s #tweets impact on a ranking? # of keywords? Etc. Also… the individual rankings of those social pages.
  • All we have to do is adjust our calculations to track it properly. To prove to ourselves that it’s worth our time and efforts.
  • For example: telemarketers don’t ask “what’s the ROI of a phone call?” instead they ask “what’s the conversion rate of our sales calls?”Email marketers don’t ask “what’s the ROI of this email newsletter?” instead they ask “what’s the conversion rate of our email blasts?”Social Media is very similar. You can’t just ask “what’s the ROI of social media?” You have to ask “what’s the ROI of specific activities that we engage in via social media?”
