Social Media Masters Workshop: Social Media Monitoring and Measurement – Understanding How To Turn Data Into Business Insights
Cities Offered: Los Angeles (September 9th)
With Social Media and Digital Communications becoming part of how business gets done, businesses are wondering how should they use social media to enhance their business. When social media first started, companies reacted by putting up Facebook pages, signing up for a Twitter handle and adding a blog to their website and other basic social/digital interactions. Now the game has gotten far more complicated. Without a lot of knowledge or framework around how to make sense of all the social media and digital interactions, professionals from all walks of life—PR, Marketing, Customer Service, Production Development, Engineering, etc… want to know, “How does social media affect my business? Does it:
- Increase Marketing conversion rates and Sales?
- Reduce Marketing and Sales costs?
- Reduce costs for building and maintaining brand reputation?
- Shorten Product Development cycles?
- Increase positive word-of-mouth and awareness?
- Decrease agent-assisted calls in Customer Service?
- Decrease overall costs by reducing items like return merchandise (RMAs)….
Yes, it does. And the question on everyone’s mind is How.” This session will use real-life case studies to illustrate with examples so you’ll leave with tools, tips, strategy and tactical capabilities to monitor and measure the success of your social media and digital communication programs. We’ll cover the how’s, the what’s and the why’s to social media monitoring and measurement:
