Re : Twitter's Enduring Struggle: ROI
I am just wondering if engaging existing customers might have a much higher value than 55 %. Because this is one thing that businesses are doing effectively on social media in my opinion. Customers of most of the brands now interact with them on their social media pages instead of any other forums.

The problem is that some of these businesses aren't comfortable with intangible results. How do you measure brand awareness? That one is big for businesses on Twitter, but it's still so difficult to track.

Re : Twitter's Enduring Struggle: ROI
It is interesting to note what John Souza said. He terms social media as significant play in the marketing. On the other hand he gives the notion that businesses are unsure of its benefit and are mostly forced into having a twitter presence. It looks like businesses don't have a choice, they have to be there.

Re: Measuring Twitter
If Twitter helps brands build consumer engagement, I wonder if there's a premium enterprise service the company can offer businesses.

Measuring Twitter
I think companies will start stepping back and asking themselves, "Ok what are we really using Twitter for and how are we measuring it?" I'm really surprised Twitter's analytics tools haven't taken off more with businesses.
Social is a Business Imperative
Social is a Business Imperative
The use of social media for a host of business purposes is rising. Indeed, social is quickly moving from cutting edge to business basic. Organizations that have so far ignored social - either because they thought it was a passing fad or just didnít have the resources to properly evaluate potential use cases and products - must start giving it serious consideration.
