New York, NY (PRWEB) June 06, 2011
At the IIR Measure Up Conference, 2011 to be held in Boston, MA, from June 6-8, the event focus will be on return on investment (ROI) as denoted by online activities; specifically social media.
“Today, marketers and C-Level audience have blurred ideas on how to use Social Media to understand intent”, said Debjani Deb, managing partner of EmPower Research, and one of the speakers at the Measure Up conference. “Often marketers don’t look beyond ‘awareness’ or ‘popularity’ as metrics to denote success. Therefore, they are not able to correlate their marketing investments with actual results. Due to this missing link, the full value of the channel is lost.
In an interview with Measure Up conference chair Guy Powell and Steven Groves, co-author of the recently launched book ROI of social media (Visit http://community20.blogspot.com/2011/05/measure-up-podcast-series-debjani-deb.html), Debjani briefly discussed the need for marketers to leverage Social Media to engage with their customers. She also urged them to consider ‘purchase intention’ and ‘loyalty’ to derive meaningful insights for justifying their marketing investments.
