About the event
Why did Econsultancy predict that 2009 would be the year of measurement?
As marketing budgets shrink and marketing departments and agencies are asked to show Return on Investment (ROI), the need to effectively measure any element of the marketing mix becomes paramount.
In simple economic terms, those who fail to measure and show comparative return on social media marketing and Online PR may see their budgets or clients recede.
So, is it the end to social media tests, soft conversational and sentiment metrics and hello hard, financial metrics?
What are the social media measurement standards and who is setting them?
With so many channels, metrics etc where do you start and more importantly, where do you stop?
