New media has made new forms of marketing measurement possible. But many organizations are still unsure of how to evaluate legacy metrics like impressions, clicks, leads and revenue against the new reach, interaction and impact metrics native to the new generation of digital consumer/brand interactions. In this workshop, we’ll examine how social media metrics are evolving, how leading brands are approaching the many challenges of social media measurement and which blend of quantitative and qualitative data can best illuminate online relationships. This session is for hands-on marketers seeking to tie new media programs into larger cross channel campaigns and strategic business objectives through metrics and analysis. Expect to get templates, frameworks and how-to techniques applicable to companies big and small.
