Assignment
Write down a list of the social media sites that you plan to use in your strategy, and identify the metrics you plan to track (i.e. comments on blogs, likes, RT's, etc.).

There are many ways to identify metrics but don’t forget to benchmark them. I created a comprehensive ROI measurement table for an upcoming social media campaign, which should impress leadership — thanks!

Useful as a starting point – but a quick case study would be far more useful.

Behavioral: Number of people who have followed the Facebook page
Attitudinal: Engagement (Replies, retweets, mentions, favorites)
Financial: Increase-satisfaction & loyalty (Membership)
