As Social Investment Grows, it’s Harder to Track Results

Social has become a critical activation channel for brands to engage and interact with consumers. According to recent data from The CMO Survey, social media spending is expected to climb to a 20.9 percent share of marketing budgets in the next five years, a dramatic increase from only 5.6 percent in 2009.

However, as brands increase their social marketing investments, measuring social marketing performance has become increasingly difficult, particularly as brands increase their presence across paid, owned and earned platforms. A couple of key findings from the survey:

  • Only 11.5% are able to quantify the impact social media has had on their business.
  • Only 10.2% of the recent survey respondents think that social media makes a significant contribution to their company’s performance.
