Measurement: Best Practices on Turning Insight into Action [WEBINAR REPLAY]

Social Media Today podcasts show

Summary: Data from social media is useless unless it helps you make positive improvements and decisions that have a measurable impact. Unfortunately, dealing with data is like trying to untangle a knotted mass of chain. Those who are attempting to unravel the chain of data often get caught up in it, preventing clear data and insights from being turned into meaningful action. That’s why it’s crucial to have a good plan and efficient system to help you. Before you can begin to untangle data from social media monitoring, you have to know what you want to achieve. Do you want to learn why customers switch to the competitor or predict what they will purchase next? Only then can you focus monitoring in the areas that will help you get the answers to these questions. Once properly placed data monitoring uncovers the insights, you’ll be able to take action. Data may show that customers who bought a certain product are in the market for the add-on to the item. So why not put the items on the shelf next to each other or offer a coupon for the add-on item with the purchase of the first product? Unraveling data and insights from social media monitoring takes patience and persistence in order to gain valuable insights. Join our panel of experts as we discuss:Defining social media monitoring goals and prospects.Charting an analytics process that will deliver actionable insights.Choosing the best tools for listening, and tracking engagement and activity.Deciding where data and insights are routed and who will take action on them.Measuring the success of marketing campaigns driven by actionable insights.Evaluating and refining your marketing campaign.Sponsored by @Brandwatch   About the Panel: Will McInnes is a senior executive at Brandwatch, a leading social media analytics tech company.
