Forward Social Media's, SEM Service Determines B2B Social Marketing Effectiveness, Boosts ROI

Forward Social Media launched an expert, streamlined assessment process to help marketers quickly gauge the effectiveness of their b2b social media efforts.

Los Angeles, CA, March 13, 2012 --( Forward Social Media, an online direct and digital marketing services firm, today announced the launch of an expert, streamlined assessment process to help marketers quickly gauge the effectiveness of their business-to-
business social media efforts.

Forward Social Media offers a rapid assessment of business-to-business social media effectiveness, then delivers recommendations on how to best reach target audiences.

“Studies show that over two-thirds of business-to-business companies use social networks in their marketing mix, while few calculate the ROI of their social marketing campaigns,” said Robert Leftwich, CEO of Forward Social Media, LLC. “That leaves a huge gap in understanding and correcting the profitability of businesses’ social marketing. Forward Social Media fills that gap.”

Forward Social Media will review both online and offline marketing activities as they relate to social media, showing their critical connection. The assessment will also include a thorough analysis of customers’ social media usage, including social profiles, channels and campaigns – and how those efforts stack up against competitors.

The result will be an in-depth report that supplies business with the components of social marketing success:

•Uniform content strategy aligning online and offline marketing communications.
•Social measurement strategy based on clear metrics
•Customized selection of social channels and tools best suited to each businesses’ unique needs.
•Social media strategy streamlined to integrate with current marketing efforts.
