  5. 5. Why it Matters <ul><li>Marketers are no longer the only major source of information for their company, brand, products and services: </li></ul><ul><li>Online social networks and information shape brand perception, create powerful messaging trends that must be understood and directed, and provide a striking means of measuring the state of the brand: </li></ul>Introduction
  6. 6. Why it matters
  7. 7. Social Media Tools
  8. 8. Social Media Tools Social Media Tools help you track the basic “who, what, where” of online conversation: What’s being said Who is saying it Where it’s being said Tools
  9. 9. Social Media Tools The basic data these programs primarily deliver (and process) unformatted text – appropriately named a “river of news”: However Social Media data is generated Social Media Tools assume that someone – some human – is reading and reacting Tools
  10. 10. Repurposing Tools for Measurement Measurement and Monitoring are fundamentally different functions, But with creativity and tool development a new paradigm of Social Media reporting is here Tools
  11. 11. Challenges Social Media Reporting with the current generation of Social Media Monitoring tools present several challenges: Tools
  12. 12. The Three C’s of Social Media Getting the Data Right Where you Want it Three C’s
  13. 13. Profile Development Core terms can generate huge amounts of traffic: “ Michelle Obama” 96,782 Posts in 30 days (July 7 – Aug 5, 2010) “ Obama” generates 2,902,044 Posts Targeting search criteria can reduce the volume, but conversations can still be very large Culling Data
  14. 14. Profile Development Potentially significant topics are easily lost in data quality noise: Michelle Obama visits Spain (Michelle Obama) AND (Spain) 8,613 Posts July 7 – Aug 5, 2010 Culling Data
  15. 15. Profile Development Useful evaluation of a topic requires careful definition of the topic’s search criteria: Search Criteria: (Michelle)AND(Obama)+ (Spain) – 8,613 Posts Further investigation reveals unrelated posts in search group. Off Topic Posts Michelle Obama Visits Spain Culling Data
  16. 16. Search Criteria require ongoing adjustment to identify key new topics of conversation and clean out off topic posts Key Takeaway Culling Data
  17. 17. Classification How do we Populate the Framework?
  18. 18. <ul><li>As with Web analytics data, the classifications available to us with social media data are primarily behavioral: </li></ul><ul><li>Topic </li></ul><ul><li>Sentiment </li></ul><ul><li>Source </li></ul><ul><li>Influencer </li></ul><ul><li>Impact </li></ul>Dimensions of Classification Classifying Data
  19. 19. Basic Metrics by Class Classifying Data
  20. 20. … And a word about ROI and goals… Organizational structure usually drives goals Which department / division owns ‘Social?’ Measure what really matters? But you can’t measure everything Marketing Product Development Customer Care To generate leads and / or drive transactions To integrate learnings/suggestions in product To enable users to get quality answers fast <ul><li>-# of leads </li></ul><ul><li># of transactions </li></ul><ul><li>Revenue minus costs </li></ul><ul><li>Cost per conversion </li></ul><ul><li>-Engagement Score </li></ul><ul><li>-Time / cost of driving innovation in organization </li></ul><ul><li>Cost per new feature (engineering hours) vs. impact of feature </li></ul><ul><li>Time to market </li></ul>-# of answers by users vs. company -# ratings of answers -Resolution rates -Reduction of costs for answers -Customer Satisfaction How to do these? How to do these? How to do these?
  21. 21. Only a small fraction of posts are automatically rated positive or negative by social media monitoring tools Case Study: Less than 8% of posts are rated and only 3.5% give a negative sentiment rating for “Michelle Obama” during the highly critical online conversation discussing her trip to Spain on 8/4/10 A Caution About Sentiment Classifying Data
  22. 22. While the accuracy of sentiment rating is reported by tool vendors as 60% accurate, in practice we frequently observe error rates greater than 50% Positive Rated Post Of Those, Many are Wrong Classifying Data
  23. 23. Key Takeaway The primary dimensions of social media measurement are behavioral: topic, sentiment, source, influencer, impact. Use of automated sentiment is not recommended at this time Classifying Data
  25. 25. Can you quantify the ROI of social media?* Social Media presence is a reaction to an entire brand interacting with the world.
