[Social Media] How Marketers are Monetizing Social Media
A few weeks ago, I sat on a panel for MITX that focused on monetization of social media. Three of the biggest takeaways/talking points were as followed: Two sides of social. Social media is a lot like search marketing and is something that should be looked at with lens similar to both paid and organic social media. The paid side is the one that focuses on advertising ventures across the social platforms. Looking at social in this manner allows for companies to look at separate KPIs and then roll them up into a performance overview.

Since the Super Bowl went dark, real-time marketing has officially become ‘a thing’ on social media (some would argue we’ve been doing real-time marketing for years, but that’s another blog post). But Madonna’s stumble sent the whole thing into a new realm of social activity. The traditional media aren’t to be left out either with the front pages of today’s papers (apart from the Guardian) making out that there was pretty much only one thing to talk about when it comes to the Brits. But when you crunch the numbers, social media tells a slightly different story.
