#HootSuite White Paper Series on Measuring Social Media for ROI

Social Media Measurement for ROI White Paper

HootSuite is thrilled to pair up with Nichole Kelly, a leading Social Media Measurement Coach, to co-author a series of White Papers. Each one is designed to help you develop the tracking and measurement skills required to learn the effectiveness of your social media activities.

Social Measurement Conundrum

2011 has already seen a rapid increase in budgets for social media for many marketers. But with this increased reliance on social comes increased accountability to show how social media can translate into real results — whether you’re measuring against your company’s bottom line or your own social media goals.

Many struggle to align traditional measurement speak — like sales, revenue and cost — with the new language of social metrics, including “Likes,” followers, @replies etc.

To help mitigate this measurement conundrum HootSuite has released a 5-part series in partnership with Nichole Kelly to demonstrate how the advanced reporting capabilities in the dash can provide the data you need to show how social is performing for your company.
