Event Details

Social media. It's becoming a prerequisite for any marketing strategy. It might be delivered through the digital marketing company, PR agency or specialist social media agency. Either way we're all reporting on our results. Or are we? And should we be? Apparently only 1 out of3 companies is currently tracking social media ROI.

With the constant questioning of Twitter measure of influence 'Klout' and the unreliability of automatic sentiment analysis we can't even be sure that what we're measuring is even accurate?

  • Is social media a brand building exercise above all else?
  • Is it short-sighted just to look at immediate ROI?
  • Does tracking sales and conversion take something away from the personability?
  • Does it depend on what 'return' you're looking for?
  • Is it too complicated to see what impact social media has had on the buying process?
  • Is it about time we started taking social media more seriously?
  • What's the right thing to measure anyway?

Chaired by John Robb - cultural commentator and editor of Louder than War @johnrobb77

Robin Wilson - Director of PR & social media at McCann @robin1966
