The ‘AMP Up Your Digital Marketing’ Podcast Presents:

The Evolution of Social Media and Its Key Metrics with Gerry Moran

In this episode, Gerry Moran, Head of Social Media at SAP in North America joins us to discuss the role of enterprise tools and distributed management for social media. Gerry also discussed his approach to social media analytics.

"Three key metrics that we look at… It’s reach, it’s engage and it’s convert."

Gerry Moran shares his insight on the evolution of social media and its key metrics:

  • Don’t just be present. Engage. It’s not just enough to be on social media.  Instead of just being present, you need to drive awareness and measure activity and campaigns.
  • Listen before you leap. Listen; see what the conversation is and where the opportunities are.
  • Three key metrics. Pay attention to the three key metrics: reach, engage, convert. The factors of the key metrics are constantly evolving and what determines the metrics shift according to your company’s growth and goals.
