Two Best Values in Media Monitoring

Tweets as Poll Data? Be Careful

Wall Street Journal
spacer
Tweets as Poll Data? Be Careful issues a warning on the validity of social media measurement. Focusing on the drawbacks of measuring public opinion and sentiment through social media analysis, it's a worthwhile counterpoint to the many articles advocating quantitative measurement of Twitter and other social media. Our conclusion: monitoring social media is crucial; the value of aggregated sentiment analysis is still questionable.

Written by Kristin Jones, CEO of the media measurement service Wallop! OnDemand, How Measuring PR Helps You Triumph Over Competitors makes the case for measuring not just your own media exposure, but also that of competitors in order to better understand your PR performance and to identify weaknesses in your program compared to competitors.

7 PR Lessons Komen Didn't Know It Was Giving You

Waxing Unlyrical
spacer
In last week's issue of Media Monitoring News, we cited a number of articles on the Susan G. Komen Kerfuffle — thinking that would be the last of it here. But 7 PR Lessons Komen Didn't Know It was Giving You by Shonali Burke uses the Komen incident to punctuate seven crucial points about crises management. The article also includes links to other worthwhile analyses of the Komen incident.

Better to be prepared on response strategies and techniques — and consult this template in most any crisis.

How to Survive an Ambush Media Interview

Mr. Media Training spacer
Just wondering: has any corporate executive ever said to an ambush interviewer something like this with a nice friendly smile: "Look, stop acting like a jerk and start acting like a professional. Call for an appointment and I'll be glad to talk with you." If anyone ever did, you'll probably never see it on TV news. How to Survive an Ambush Media Interview offers solid tips on what NOT to do (which is exactly what most every ambush-ee does) and how to gain the advantage over the ambusher. There's also a Part II of How to Survive an Ambush Media Interview. And Mr. Media Training has an interesting case study entitled My Rape Charge Was Dropped. Now What?, on ways to reclaim your good name after wrongful publicity.

How Americans Are Spending Their Media Time…and Money

Nielsen spacer
Americans spend more than 33 hours per week watching video across the screens, according to the latest Nielsen Cross-Platform Report. But how they're consuming content - traditional TV and otherwise - is changing. Demonstrating that consumers are increasingly making Internet connectivity a priority, 75.3 percent pay for broadband Internet (up from 70.9% last year); 90.4 percent pay for cable, telephone company-provided TV or satellite. Homes with both paid TV and broadband increased 5.5 percent since last year. Changes are afoot, however, as consumers seek out the entertainment option that makes the most sense for them.

Top 100 Influencers in Social Media

Social Technology Review spacer
Yet another selection of Top 100 Influencers in Social Media, this one with "The White House" at #100. In reviewing the list, you'll be struck by how few mainstream journalists and business leaders make the list, comprised mostly of individuals who made their reputation largely through opinionated blogging.

5 Essential Spreadsheets for Social Media Analytics

Mashable spacer
If you're in search of free, time-efficient methods for measuring social media, 5 Essential Spreadsheets for Social Media Analytics points you to ready-made analysis tools to measure Twitter and Facebook. Yes, they're free and they're helpful, but they're not integrated and the metrics are limited. They are certainly better than no media measurement at all, but far less valuable than most any subscription social media analysis service.

What Others Like (and Dislike) about Your Tweets

Marketing Profs spacer
Based on an extensive survey by Carnegie Mellon University, What Others Like (and Dislike) About Your Tweets includes concrete guidance on preferred types of Tweets. What's disliked: Tweets that were part of someone else's conversation, or updates around a current mood or activity. What's liked: Tweets that included questions to followers, information sharing, and self-promotion (such as links to content the writer had created). Repeat: No one gives a tweet what you're eating…or feeling.

The State of Social Media Marketing

Awareness Networks spacer
It's a white paper and it's free, but you have to register to get a copy of The State of Social Media Marketing, based on interviews of 320 marketers from multiple industries with varying levels of social media experience. Some key points:
  • Executives and senior managers expect traction in three key areas — ROI, integration of social with lead generation and sales, and expansion of social presence and reach.
  • Though social marketers do not have the necessary resources to execute initiatives successfully, they must meet expectations of senior management who demand tangible business value.
  • Companies experienced in social marketing are moving beyond growing social presence and reach. Their focus is shifting to active social media management for increased lead generation and sales.
  • Less-experienced marketers follow visionary peers, adopting established practices as they move along the maturity continuum.
