Regional Seminars Bring Together Industry Experts to Help Marketers Leverage Online Conversations to Grow their Brands and Strengthen Customer Relationships

BELLEVUE, WA., – Visible Technologies, a leading provider of social media monitoring and engagement solutions, today announced it will host a series of one-day breakfast seminars in cities across the United States. The road show series, titled, “Achieving Enterprise Social Media Readiness and ROI,” brings together enterprise 2.0 thought leaders to provide insights on how companies can leverage social media conversations to positively shift brand perception, increase sales and strengthen customer relationships. Visible Technologies will also present its social media ROI calculator to help brands effectively achieve and measure success with social investments.

“Social media has exploded in recent years and many brands are realizing that this channel is now business critical for many parts of their organization. While taking the initial ‘plunge’ into social is not difficult, enterprise adoption, success and ROI calculation can only be achieved with proper planning, deployment, and measurement,” explained Blake Cahill, SVP of marketing for Visible Technologies. “These events present a strong opportunity for brands to learn from fellow marketers and hear from leading experts on best practices and ways to more effectively measure social media success.”

The road show kicks off in Los Angeles on June 2, 2010 and will be followed by stops in San Francisco, New York, Chicago and Atlanta. Attendees will gain insights on:
• How to determine your company’s social media readiness and maturity;
• Total cost of social media ownership and what resource, technology, and service costs should you consider when investing in social and deploying it across your organization;
• Best practices for evaluating and improving existing social monitoring and engagement processes and tools;
• What specific ROI calculations and KPIs are needed to effectively measure and assess the return social channels deliver; and
• Success stories of how corporations like Microsoft, XEROX and DIRECTV are achieving measurable ROI.

“Understanding social media and being prepared is fundamental to social business success,” said Esteban Kolsky, principal and founder of ThinkJar LLC and former Gartner Research director. “Marketers that leverage the Social Media Maturity Model can identify organizational best practices and behaviors and build a roadmap of recommendations to help socialize their enterprise and achieve ROI.”
