Never let it be said I lack things to say! :-) Here's where I've stopped in and shared opinions in the last week...
The ROI of CRM (and Social CRM) -- This week's best!
Mike Boysen wrote a dandy article consolidating thoughts from a variety of folks, including me. I also added more thoughts in the comments.
Andrew Rudin discusses what is needed to evaluate the value of a corporate initiative -- and he gets it. I shared some related thoughts.
I like the way Alasdair Munn think and this article is one of the reasons. He sees the big picture.
HOW TO: Measure Social Media ROI
Despite the title, Christina Warren's article focuses mostly on metric tools rather than how to, you know, actually determine social media valuation. I made comments salient to valuation.
If you want to know an actual methodology to determine the value of social business initiatives (including social media) , then check out my webinar How To Determine Social Media and SCRM Value and ROI.
Christina wrote an abbreviated version of her above Mashable article. My comment here was a mirror of the one I posted in the article above.
