Social Media ROI Framework
Social Media exploded during one of the worst economic crises in history -- a time when corporate executives have been held accountable to Return on Investment like never before. Whether you're in B-C or B-B, you've seen your customers flock to social media channels and expecting you to be there. But at the same time, executives have been reluctant to provide social media full funding without proven ROI.
Marketers pushing for adoption in the face of this hesitation have put forth a variety of theories and calculators from “it can’t – and shouldn’t – be measured” to complex spreadsheets measuring the brand awareness of social conversations and “Likes”. Honorable attempts -- but they’ve all failed to directly link activities across all departments to the one true business measurement: profit.
This presentation by Sam Fiorella, Chief CX Consultant at Sensei Marketing and author of The Social Roadmap blog and upcoming book, will outline the organizational challenges faced in both adoption and measurement of social media and highlight a proven method for linking social media activity to the business’ bottom line.
