What's the ROI? A Framework for Social Analytics

Brian Solis spacer
The Albert Einstein quote that, "Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted", seems particularly applicable to social media. Brian Solis takes a look at "return on investment" as a measurable metric in What's the ROI? A Framework for Social Analytics based on a study by Altimeter Group entitled A Framework for Social Analytics.

How Idiots Track Success

ClickZ (Jim Stern) spacer
Author Jim Stern (and Katie Paine) discredited "hits" as a valid measurement of online success by labeling the metric How Idiots Track Success. Most businesses have discarded this measure. Now, in How Idiots Track Success, Jim Stern cautions that we're repeating the mistake with other metrics. He says only three metrics are meaningful and worth measuring. What are they? Hint: they measure business outcomes.

5 PR Nightmares You Should Have Seen Coming

How do you best prepare for them? How do you best handle them?

Social Marketing Starts with Listening

Forbes spacer
Social Marketing Starts with Listening states its premise succinctly: social media offers an inexpensive, quick way of gathering marketing insight. You can keep tabs on customer needs, wants and concerns. You can get an intimate view of how competitors are connecting with customers. And you can check out the influencers who give your brand a "thumbs up" or a "thumbs down." So, it asks, how can you not have the time to listen to customers via social media?

Controlling the Social Conversation

ClickZ spacer
The dichotomy is that consumers seem to have control of social media conversations, but companies want to control the message. Controlling the Social Conversation looks at how businesses can bridge this divide and exert at least some control over the content of social media content.

4 Biggest Lies About Social Media

BNET spacer
4 Biggest Lies About Social Media undermines quite a lot of conventional wisdom about social media. Linked-In is for networking? Twitter is for conversation? Blogs are personal journals? With social media, you can get people to do (fill in the blank)? If you believe any of these, be ready to be disabused.

5 Motivations for Sharing Content

Jeff Bullas spacer
Why do people share their thoughts, videos and intimate details in social media? In 5 Motivations for Sharing, Jeff Bullas pens a summary of the findings of a first-of-its-kind study released by The New York Times in conjunction with Customer Insight Group and Latitude Research on the psychology of sharing. The study also revealed the six distinct personas of online sharers: altruists, careerists, boomerangs, hipsters, connectors, and selectives. Understanding each of those sharing personalities may help you understand the motivations behind any given conversation.

12 Most Popular Social Media Alter Egos

The 12 Most spacer
The six personas of the New York Times study don't correlate very well with the 12 Most Popular Social Media Alter Egos. Using known celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Glenn Beck, Barbara Walters, and Oprah Winfrey as prototypes, the article uncovers the different personality types that haunt social media.

Combining Public Relations and Marketing to Change Consumer Opt-In Behavior

D.S. Simon spacer

According to this 2-minute video on Combining Public Relations and Marketing to Change Consumer Opt-In Behavior, PRketing = PR + Content Marketing = Opt In Behavior Change = Moving the Needle (ROI).

The Myth of Reputation

Chris Brogan spacer
Chris Brogan advises in The Myth of Reputation to stop worrying about your personal or corporate reputation. Reputation isn't useful, he says. Leave reputation conversations for those who have the time to waste having them, he says. It's an iconoclastic viewpoint — and worth contemplating.
