    Really interesting article,

    Measuring ROI on a brand enhancement campaign through Social media can prove a waste of resources. Simply creating the best quality and most frequent new and interesting social media content is a superb way to spend your time and resources.

    – According to just under three-quarters of agencies surveyed (74%), clients use direct traffic to measure social media activity.

    This is clearly a narrow minded view of measuring the effectiveness, or ROI, on a social media campaign!

    Here are some other interesting statistics on corporate participation in social media strategy

    – A third of companies (32%) do not spend anything on social media marketing and a further 36% spend under $5,000 a year.

    I hope this has given a different slant to your point on Social media and ROI! I would finish by saying that ROI on social media is a fledgling concept with difficult parameters to measure. However I think that soon there will be full and accurate measurements of ROI on social media. In the meanwhile keep your content RELEVANT, REFRESHING and INTERESTING!

    Glad you learned some good stuff and I thank you for sharing.
