Optimization & Monetization
Everyone is looking for a social ROI, and it is the responsible marketer’s job to accurately report one. We are no longer able to say that ‘If you are asking the ROI of social media, you are asking the wrong question.’ Social media provides many valuable metrics and insights, and uncovering these metrics will lead you to a clear monetization process. Understanding a social media conversion, like or follow, as a micro conversion that needs further nurturing is the first step. now we have to move further and be able to take a new fan and guide them through our marketing funnel.
The best way to guide a fan is through interaction on social channels that leads your fans to your website. Don’t oversell, but provide a service. Turn your website into a place people want to visit and once you are a trusted resource then go for the ultimate conversion. The key to this process is being able to identify an individual through out this entire process, learn the latest tricks and about the best tools for doing this during the Monetization themes sessions.
