Social Media ROI – conversation with Steven Groves and Guy R. Powell

February 27, 2010

A few weeks ago I participated in a phone conversation with two great thinkers in the area of Social Media measurement: Steven Groves (CEO of Social Marketing Conversations and contributor to and Guy R. Powell, founder of DemandROMI and author of “Return on Marketing Investment” & “Marketing Calculator: Measuring and managing return on marketing investmant.”  Both Guy and Steve are currently working on a new book tackling the topic of ROI of social media marketing. They have been talking with speakers of the upcoming Measure Up conference in Chicago to both bring awareness of this great event as well as have a chance to talk with Social Media practitioners of large brands about their successes and struggles in the area of social media measurements.
