  17. 17. © nixonmcinnes 2010 Take-aways Measuring social media activity shouldn’t be about the tools; social technologies are tools to better help you achieve your objectives. It’s easy to get lost in the increasing number of stats available, but focus on why you’re using them and generating insight you can act on.
  18. 18. © nixonmcinnes 2010 Take-aways The objectives and metrics used will need to be scrutinised, amended and added to over time. Keeping a monthly log should be enough, otherwise it becomes too time consuming. Before campaigns/events create benchmark reports and evaluate change after to judge the impact the activity had.
  19. 19. © nixonmcinnes 2010 Listening in Reputation management How much? Happy or unhappy? Should we care? What has an impact? ?
  20. 20. © nixonmcinnes 2010 What kind of sites host conversations about us? Audience insight How much chatter compared to our competitors? Which sites are important/successful - how can we build relationships?
  21. 21. © nixonmcinnes 2010 A story about TV Back in the days of three channels, telly was communal. We all watched the same thing - & talked about it the next day. Programmes were events.
  22. 22. © nixonmcinnes 2010 Sharing experiences online but now we have 100s of channels people are finding new ways of sharing telly events
  23. 23. © nixonmcinnes 2010 and because the conversation’s taking place on an open platform we can start extracting the data and doing interesting things with it
  24. 24. © nixonmcinnes 2010 We can understand how people are watching TV and ‘hear’ what they think as they tweet it
  25. 25. © nixonmcinnes 2010 We can build conversations into programming and get live feedback on air
