    • Using Web Analytics to Measure the Impact of Earned Online Media on Business Outcomes


      from Context Analytics Added 111 2 0

      For some time, communications teams have been measuring PR ROI through outputs, such as media coverage volume, coverage sentiment, and share of voice, rather than business outcomes. With the relatively recent developments in web analytics, organizations are now able to directly measure how prospects and customers find information that lead them to a brand's web site or other digital assets -whether through search, paid media or earned media. As a result, it is becoming possible for organizations to identify which types of channel drive the most value across all media, not only paid media. This paper focuses on earned media, and provides a method that Context Analytics uses to tie traditional PR metrics to online business outcomes such as visits, registrations, downloads and, ultimately, sales. After a brief overview of web analytics technology, the paper provides two broad sets of analytic methodologies for communications. First are basic analytics designed to help PR professionals understand which general categories of online media are driving traffic and can also be used to generate ROI metrics. The second set of analytics involve advanced statistical methodologies and are designed to help PR professionals match specific messaging strategies to target audiences. Using the methodology provided within the paper, PR professionals can directly measure the business value of carefully targeted earned media opportunities in the same way that marketers have been able to for over a decade.

        from Jean Pickering Added 19 1 0

        On Saturday, May 14, 2011, Olivier Blanchard talked with the unGeeked e'Lite Chicago attendees about Social Media ROI. Olivier is one of social media's thought leaders. One of the things that organizations need to consider when investing the time to implement a solid social media program, is how will they measure ROI. Very simply ROI is how much more revenue is your company earning due to it's social media efforts. Social Media experts and advertising agencies like to "pooh-pooh" this idea. Instead, they talk about number of impressions, number of followers, etc. But they do not talk about increase revenue which is ultimate the return on your company's investment in it's social media activities. This video was filmed by Jean Pickering from The Tektite Group.

                    The misery of so many Pension Owners is only set to increase as pension fees increase and growth decreases. There are positive, legal and ethical alternatives - primarily by changing the type of pension. Certain pensions give the Pension Owner the right to choose how their funds are invested. Property continues to be a safer option than the Stock Market, so converting a pension to one that can invest in property is a sound investment. It also avoid the tax traps set by changes in pension legislation. The process is not fast, and it requires that both the Pension Owner and the Property Professional meet certain requirements. However, the long-term results mean that the future of the Pension Fund is far brighter.
