FIR Interview: Augie Ray, Sr. Analyst, Forrester Research
Augie Ray of Forrester Research looks at social media ROI.
Augie Ray speaks with FIR co-hostShel Holtz about “The ROI of Social Media Marketing,” a new research report that goes beyond the financial measures to address a variety of ways to assess the impact of companies’ social media efforts. According to Forrester, “Social media marketing delivers a wide range of benefits to organizations that are beneficial in the short term and long term in ways both quantitative and qualitative. To properly value the impact of their social media marketing investments, interactive marketers must align their objectives, metrics, targets, and strategies across four perspectives — the financial perspective, the digital perspective, the brand perspective, and the risk management perspective.” The report is free to Forrester customers and can be purchased by anyone else for $449.
