The Elusive Next Level: 4 Steps for Getting More Value from Your Social Media Marketing Efforts
Chris Wintermeyer, Chief Advocate, Domo
Julie Kehoe, VP of Communications, Domo
When we talk to other marketers about social media, almost everyone seems to be stuck in the same place. They’ve done a good job establishing an online presence and figuring out the right platforms to reach customers. But most marketers admit they also feel stuck and uncertain about how to show a real return on investment. They want to know how to test, improve and demonstrate more value to their organization from their social media initiatives. So the conversation naturally tends toward talking about “the next level” of social media measurement. The problem is that when we start talking about moving to the “next level,” everyone looks around, waiting for someone to define what that “next level” actually is.
Absent a sufficient answer, many marketers default to simply doing more: we get on more platforms, we try to drive more followers or friends or “Likes,” and we push out more updates. Doing more, however, is both unsustainable and potentially detrimental to your organization; but there is a better answer. At Domo, we look at the “next level” of social media as aligning your social initiatives to your organization’s business goals. In this session we’ll discuss four simple steps to get you started.
