How to Calculate Social Media ROI: A Delightfully Short Guide

How to Calculate Social Media ROI: A Delightfully Short Guide | Digital Media & Science | Scoop.it

Social media ROI is what you get back from all the time, effort, and resources you commit to social. And it’s best calculated with dollar amounts.

Of course, there are no dollar signs dangling from retweets or likes. Twitter, Facebook, and others are no-cost marketing channels to join, potentially a zero-dollar investment (which makes any return exponentially fantastic, right!).

So in order to track ROI, the key elements would be:
-  Identifying your monetary investment in social media
-  Attaching a dollar amount to your social media goals...

When it comes to online marketing effectiveness and driving both traffic and conversions to a website, brands have plenty of options to choose from: direct traffic, organic vs. paid search, email, social media, display banners, referral traffic, etc.

 

But these channels don’t necessarily have the same level of effectiveness, depending on whether we are a small, medium or large organization. Results will also vary greatly depending on which industry we may evolve in – brand paid search may work well in travel but less so in sports or home and garden, for example....

Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 11, 2014 6:06 PM

Nowadays we are being constantly told that we must share our stories using video to get any traction. Then comes along this gem of an article that says, "Wait a minute...maybe not so!"


As the article says, telling a story via video can be powerful -- plus expensive and time-consuming. Even more, it may not be the ONLY way to "move" the hearts and minds of people.


Here's a quote from the post that stood out for me:

“The soul is ‘contained’ in the human voice,” says Dave Isay, founder of StoryCorps, and former NPR producer. Gotta love that. 


There is plenty of advice and other good points made in this article. When you are crunched for time or cash -- or both -- remember the power of the human voice and go audio. Or mix up your content strategy to include more audio.


You may be surprised with the results!

Reasons Why Infographics Make Great Marketing Tools | Gearfuse

Reasons Why Infographics Make Great Marketing Tools | Gearfuse | Digital Media & Science | Scoop.it

The main reason why infographics are so successful is that they transpose written data into a visual representation of the ideas that information contains. Visual data is absorbed much more quickly and easily, which leads to faster understanding. The majority of the population learns best through visual stimuli as shown in research undertaken into Individual learning styles, which is why for advertising companies, such as those involved in ecig marketing, relevant information is delivered in a visually interesting, coherent and direct way.

14 - 16 April 2015, Berlin, Germany.
Most people take social media for granted nowadays and very few can imagine life without a mobile phone. Only the healthcare sector continues to create barriers. Patient 2.0, however, refuses to be excluded from progress: at conhIT 2015 in Berlin, experts will be discussing how medical facilities and, in particular, suppliers of traditional healthcare IT solutions should address these developments if they don't want to lose out on them.


"As medical practitioners we are increasingly faced with patients who obtain information on their illness and possible therapies from the Internet or use their mobile devices to record health-related data, although only for fitness purposes," Dr. Philipp Stachwitz, Specialist for Anaesthetics and Palliative Medicine at the Havelhöhe Community Hospital in Berlin explains. Palliative care is among the fields where the much-discussed "Patient 2.0" has become an increasing reality in the past few years: digital pain diaries are just as much in demand as social media concepts that allow pain-afflicted patients to share information and experiences.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, July 10, 2014 1:53 PM

Mark Schaefer has a great point: we often confuse the means with the end.


In a blog post that I wrote a couple weeks ago, I explained why I thought social media publishing was dead - as we know it. One of these points was that the impact of publishing on social media for our goals is the combination of volume, quality and engagement. As Mark explains, engagement is only one variable in that equation.


So how can you convert your social media activity to make it count towards your goals? 


One of the important basic first step you can take is to make sure you publish through a content hub that you can make your own and from where you can convert visitors: to subscribe to your content, to reshare your previously published content or to sign up for whatever pre-sales activity makes sense in your business.

Mathematica 10 launched with 700+ New Functions and an Amazing Amount of R&D

Mathematica 10 launched with 700+ New Functions and an Amazing Amount of R&D | Digital Media & Science | Scoop.it

Mathematica 10 has more new features than any previous version. It is satisfying to see such a long curve of accelerating development—and to realize that there are more new functions being added with Mathematica 10 than there were functions altogether in Mathematica 1. So what is the new functionality in Mathematica 10? It’s a mixture of completely new areas and directions (like geometric computation, machine learning and geographic computation)—together with extensive strengthening, polishing and expanding of existing areas. It’s also a mixture of things I’ve long planned for us to do—but which had to wait for us to develop the necessary technology—together with things I’ve only fairly recently realized we’re in a position to tackle.


When you first launch Mathematica 10 there are some things you’ll notice right away. One is that Mathematica 10 is set up to connect immediately to the Wolfram Cloud. Unlike Wolfram Programming Cloud—or the upcoming Mathematica Online—Mathematica 10 doesn’t run its interface or computations in the cloud. Instead, it maintains all the advantages of running these natively on your local computer—but connects to the Wolfram Cloud so it can have cloud-based files and other forms of cloud-mediated sharing, as well as the ability to access cloud-based parts of the Wolfram Knowledgebase.

 

If you’re an existing Mathematica user, you’ll notice some changes when you start using notebooks in Mathematica 10. Like there’s now autocompletion everywhere—for option values, strings, wherever. And there’s also a hovering help box that lets you immediately get function templates or documentation. And there’s also—as much requested by the user community—computation-aware multiple undo. It’s horribly difficult to know how and when you can validly undo Mathematica computations—but in Mathematica 10 we’ve finally managed to solve this to the point of having a practical multiple undo.


And in Mathematica 10 one important area where this is happening is machine learning. Inside the system there are all kinds of core algorithms familiar to experts—logistic regression, random forests, SVMs, etc. And all kinds of preprocessing and scoring schemes. But to the user there are just two highly automated functions: Classify and Predict. And with these functions, it’s now easy to call on machine learning whenever one wants.


There are huge new algorithmic capabilities in Mathematica 10 in graph theory, image processing, control theory and lots of other areas. Sometimes one’s not surprised that it’s at least possible to have such-and-such a function—even though it’s really nice to have it be as clean as it is in Mathematica 10. But in other cases it at first seems somehow impossible that the function could work.

 

There are all kinds of issues. Maybe the general problem is undecidable, or theoretically intractable. Or it’s ill conditioned. Or it involves too many cases. Or it needs too much data. What’s remarkable is how often—by being algorithmically sophisticated, and by leveraging what we’ve built in Mathematica and the Wolfram Language—it’s possible to work around these issues, and to build a function that covers the vast majority of important practical cases.

 

Another important issue is just how much we can represent and do computation on. Expanding this is a big emphasis in the Wolfram Language—and Mathematica 10 has access to everything that’s been developed there. And so, for example, in Mathematica 10 there’s an immediate symbolic representation for dates, times and time series—as well as for geolocations and geographic data.
