This social media class shows brand marketers a systematic approach to connecting an organization’s social media marketing efforts to core business objectives such as sales, revenue and cost in order to ensure your efforts continue to be supported by the c-suite. Experienced social media marketers know that if your efforts are not supported by the people making budgetary decisions, all of your hard work in building up a social media profile could go to waste and your department could face cuts. For example, a social media campaign that responds well to customer concerns could be saving the company hundreds of thousands of dollars in reputation management, but if you cannot demonstrate this to the CEO or CMO, these resources could be cut. This social media marketing class, How to Prove the Value of Social Media to the C Suite, led by expert instructor Nichole Kelly, shows you how to set up the right framework to get bottom line metrics, understanding social media goals and accurately analyze and present data to the C-Suite.
With knowledge gained through OMI, I interviewed successfully for a newly created position at a nationally recognized university as the Digital Content Specialist for the College of Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA) at West Chester University. I truly believe the knowledge I gained through OMI was the difference during the interview process of this new position.
