It’s not about the media, it’s about the
business and the customer
It’s not how loud you’re shouting it’s
about relationships.
It’s not about Big Data, but about how
you use it
There are no boundaries
Standards are a reality not an excuse

More Important Numbers to Remember
90 %
35% - 40%
The percent of conversation that happens OFF LINE
The amount of conversations generated by bots,
spammers and pay
10%
The percent of on-line conversations that are public
< 5%

Big Numbers Don’t Mean Influence



Influence ≠Reach, GRP, or any other
magic bullet
There are influencers and everyone
else
All influence is relative
Measure what matters & a
computer cannot tell you
who matters most
To be influential requires relevance,
frequency & reach
Like Are Not Engagement
Impressions

Followers (unless
you’re a celebrity)
New School
 Influence = The power or ability
to affect someone’s actions
 Engagement= Some action
beyond zero
 Advocacy = engagement driven
by an agenda
 Sentiment = contextual
expression of opinion –
regardless of tone
 ROI: Return on Investment – no

Good Relationships Are More Cost Effective



Type I love Zappos into Google, and you
find 1.19 million references
Type Citibank and you get 21,000
references. Citibank spends 100 times more
a year on advertising than Zappos.
Cost per delegate acquired:
 Obama: 6,024
 Clinton: $147,058
 Romney: $2,389,464

Six Steps
to Success
The 6 steps of Measurement
Step 1: Define your goal(s).
What outcomes is this strategy or tactic going to achieve?
What are your measurable objectives?
Step 2: Define your audiences.
Who are you are trying to reach? How do your efforts
connect with those audiences to achieve the goal.
Step 3: Define your benchmarks.
Who or what are you going to compare your results to?
Step 4: Define your metrics.
What are the indicators to judge your progress?
Step 5: Select your data collection tool(s).
Step 6: Analyze your data.
Turn it into action, measure again

Step 1: Define the goals: Why do Communications ?






What return is expected? – Define in terms of the mission.
What problems is Communications supposed to solve?
What were you hired to do?
What difference are you expected to make?
If you are celebrating complete 100% success
a year from now, what is different about the
organization?
If the Communications department was eliminated,
what would be different?

Step 2: Understand the culture and your stakeholders
Questions you need to know the
answer to:
 What keeps them up at night?
 What are they currently seeing?
 Where do they go for information?
 What influences their decisions?
 What’s important to them?
 What makes them act?

Step 2B: Get everyone on the same page


Be inclusive – include anyone who will see your reports
Be clear about definitions:
 Engagement?
 Success?
 ROI?



Don’t reinvent the wheel. Understand what data already exists
Make it interactive

Step 4: Why you need a Kick-Butt Index
The Perfect KPI
 Is actionable
 Is there when you need it
 Specific to your priority
 Continuously improves your
processes
 Gets you where you want to go
 You become what you measure, so
pick your KPI carefully

Step 6: Pick the right measurement tools




If you want to measure messaging, positioning,
themes, sentiment:
Content analysis
If you want to measure awareness, perception,
relationships, preference:
Survey research
If you want to measure engagement, action,
purchase:
Web analytics
If you want predictions and correlations
you need two out of three
Step 6: Selecting a measurement tool

Be Data Informed, Not Data Driven




Ask “So What” at least three times
Rank order results from worst to best
Then look for exceptional success
Make sure you know what the
competition is doing

#2: Standards for Reach & Impressions




All impression numbers are flawed for a variety of reasons
Multipliers should never be used
A divider is more appropriate because
it is less than 5% of what is posted is
actually seen
OTS must be specific to a particular
channel – i.e. For Twitter OTS is the
number of first line followers
For Facebook it is the number
of fans to a page
#3: Standards for Engagement





Engagement = some action beyond exposure…in response to content on
an owned channel – i.e. when someone engages with you
Conversation = online or offline discussion by customers, citizens,
stakeholders, influencers or other third parties about your organization
Any measure of Engagement and Conversation must be tied to the goals
and objectives
Engagement and Conversation occurs offline and online --both must be
considered
Engagement should be measured by the % of your audience that is
engaged, and the % engagement for each item published
#4: Influence & Relevance




Adhere to WOMMA Standards
“Influence” is the ability to cause or contribute to a
change in opinion or behavior
Influence cannot be expressed in a single score or
algorithm
Should include some combination of the following
five elements:






Reach
Engagement around individual
Relevance to topic
Frequency of posts around the topic
Audience impact as measured by the ability to get the
target audience to change behavior or opinion
If an individual scores a 0 on one element, they aren’t influential
#5 Opinion & Advocacy




Sentiment is the feelings the author is trying to convey, often measured
through context surrounding characterization of object
Opinion is a view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily
based on fact or knowledge.. It is articulated and associated to the speaker
Advocacy (n) vs (v) is publicly stated support for or
recommendation of a particular cause or policy
Advocacy requires a level of expressed persuasion.
The key distinction between “advocacy” and “opinion,”
is that advocacy must have a component of
recommendation or a call to action embedded in it
#6: Impact & Value





Impact: The effect of a social media campaign, program or
effort on the target audience
Value: The impact expressed in either cost savings or
revenue incurred. Value can be short term or long term & may
be expressed in many ways including cost savings,
shortened sales cycle, increased customer retention etc
ROI: Return on Investment. A financial performance measure.
To calculate ROI, the benefit (return) of an investment is
divided by the cost of the investment; the result is expressed
as a percentage or a ratio
Any measure of Impact & Value must be tied to the goals and
objectives for your organization, brand or program
Assessing the value and impact of a campaign is a complex
process. Variables need to be weighted appropriately and
should be based on customer research data. It cannot be
reduced to a simple formula that applies equally to consumer,
B toB, and/or non-profit organizations
Remember These Points
1
It’s not about the media, it’s about the business and the customer
2
It’s not about Big Data, but about how you use it.
3
You need to be data informed, not data-driven
4
It’s not how loud you’re shouting it’s about relationships.

Standards are a reality not an excuse to hide behind
