Our objective wasnt to simply get tweets or updates, but instead measure whether or not this program changed familiarity or the likelihood to purchase a phone. - Molly ODonnell, Director of Influencer Marketing at Microsoft21

34The Problem with Measuring Influence

We live in a society obsessed with measurement, but the act of measuring often means that the thing being measured becomes illusive. When sociologists measure social capital, they do so from a distance precisely because people would try to game the measurement. But what's happening here isn't just measurement: it's trying to leverage measurement to do something. That's where it loses its role as a measurement process.

- danah boyd, Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research


What does the # really mean and why does it matter?37With executives increasing demand on ROI, brands must tread strategically as they experiment with influencer campaigns. 38When ROI = The Realization of InfluenceBrands cannot afford to make marketing or engagement decisions based on scores aloneDo these new services that capture social media scores equate to influence? Noand thats why were here todayIn digital influence, value is in the eye of the beholderIn the end, the true measure of influence is determined by an outcome or extent of change social capitalvs.influence40Social capital is the key that unlocks digital influence and new customer touch points.41Social Capital = The collective value of all 'social networks' and the inclinations that arise from these networks to do things for each other-Robert Putnam

42Social capital can be measured by the amount of trust and reciprocity in a community or between individuals-Robert Putnam



PLEASE?44The Pillars of Influence: Understanding the 3Rs

Reach: Relationships form the social graph and define how far information can travel across the social graph and communities at large. Reach is a measure of popularity, affinity, and potential impact. Relevance: Topical relevance forms the interest graph and the communities of focus. Individuals aligned through subject matter create a series of linked relationships that send information along communities of focusResonance: The measurement of the duration, rate, and level of interactivity around content, a topic, or conversations. High resonance ensures that more people will see each post or update. The New Era of Consumer Influence: When Nobodies Become Somebodies

Popularity: The state of being liked, admired, or supported by many people.

Proximity: The location of an individual is taken into consideration where effect is necessary within a particular setting or environment.

Goodwill: Increases appreciation and the probability for collaboration and action.Authority: Expert on subject matter. Authority prompts respect, which is a reward for expertise or specialty.

Trust: Difficult to measure, trust is a key trait in relationships. Trust is the firm belief in the reliability, truthfulness, or ability of someone.

Affinity: A natural liking or sympathy for someone or something. Frequency: The rate a social object, topic, or person materializes in social streams.

Period: The length or portion of time it remains visible after the initial appearance.

Amplitude: The level of engagement within a network.RRSRelevance.Resonance.Significance4747How Social Capital Becomes Influence

A persons stature within each network can directly affect behavior or cause an effect.


50The size of networks to cause effect is irrelevant. The idea that only large networks can cause effect is a myth. David Armano, Executive Vice President, Edelman Digital


Engagement becomes a form of currency:The goal is to have influentials spend social capital on your brand
