Budgets under pressure: how to demonstrate ROI from your PR and social

About this event

Most marketers in the UK are now using social media marketing in some clever strategic capacity, whether it is corporate blogging, creative conversation campaigns or building brand ambassadors through a dedicated online community. However, how many of us know how to attribute a meaningful ROI on the activity we’re undertaking with our content and social?

There is now a pressing need to look beyond low-level reporting – such as ‘counting metrics’ towards sophisticated data and analytics that demonstrate genuine business value and the fundamental value that social media and content marketing can now bring.

Following the sold-out events earlier this year, this free event will tackle this important issue and give brand owners a clear understanding of exactly how they can prove the value from ever pound they spend on social media, including:

The main types of social media metric by platform

• What's tangible - the specific metrics that demonstrate value

• A bespoke approach: what metrics suit your brand

• ROR - return on relationship values

• How to integrate social media measurement into the rest of your metrics

• Case studies and best practice

How to drive clear business impact using social media

A look at how big brands use social media to deliver marketing and customer service impact, and the secrets behind their success


Our marketers events are specially designed for marketers responsible for social media, reference programs, online content or digital marketing and of course PR professionals – all will benefit from attending.

This event is only available to in-house marketing professionals and not for agencies, freelancers or students. Apologies for any inconvenience.
