HomeWhat We Do → Measurement


Most brands focus on short-term performance metrics such as number of fans, impressions, dwell time, unique visitors, number of campaign participants, etc. As investments in social programs increase, economic-focused decision makers want to understand longer-term value and financial returns such as LTV, sales leads, number of conversions, decision journey impact, cost deflection, etc.

Organizations also want to understand how metrics associated with softer metrics such as reputation, issue management, thought leadership amplification and share of voice are trending for specified business KPIs.

ComBlu's Social Performance Index™ (SPI™) can be customized for a wide variety of both traditional and social programs. The tool generates a dashboard that translates metrics into business intelligence. Organizations are able to use the knowledge to optimize program effectiveness and uncover ways to calibrate strategy:

  • Social business ROI analysis
  • Social media ROI
  • Social marketing ROI
  • Community health and wellness
  • Program dashboards
  • Social media measurement
