HootSuite Integrates with Webtrends to Connect Social Media Messages to Website Conversion Metrics

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/02/12 --

Editor's Note: There are four photos associtated with this release.

Today HootSuite announces a new integration with WebtrendsAnalytics, widening the scope of measurement tools available to HootSuiteEnterprise clients. The HootSuite-Webtrends integration provides the performance data organizations need to properly evaluate the return of investment of their social activities. The auto-generated reports can be customized to show connections between social media messages and website conversion statistics, providing the level of measurement consistent with SEM and display ad markets for accurate comparison across channels. The integrated HootSuite-Webtrends capabilities are now available free to HootSuite Enterprise and Webtrends Analytics On-Demand clients.

HootSuite Enterprise clients with Webtrends Analytics On-Demand can now access closed loop reporting for social and answer questions such as:


--  Messages: Which message types result in the highest number of
    conversions? What are the best practices for increasing specific on-site
    actions? Which words drive the most conversions? 
--  Social accounts: Which Twitter account or Facebook Page is the source of
    the most valuable traffic? Is there a business case to invest more
    resources in organic online engagement? Should more or less social
    accounts be managed? 
--  Social networks: Which platform is providing the greatest return on the
    brand page: Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Twitter? Where is engagement
    strong, and where is it weak? 
--  Time of day: Which time of day is most effective to drive high-quality
    traffic to the website? When is the target audience on social and
    looking to buy? 

Businesses, departments and teams will be able to act upon the data provided from this integration in a timely fashion, modifying their social tactics to drive higher conversions online. The automated reporting significantly reduces time spent compiling data and presents it in readily understood and relevant terms that stakeholders need to see. This granular level of insight shows how effective social media engagement tactics are in bringing about website conversions, and ultimately the impact it has on an organization's bottom line.

"Every organization must continually evaluate and optimize the social media ROI of each department's publishing and engagement efforts. For that you need measurement-driven management, and the HootSuite-Webtrends integration helps satisfy that need," says RyanHolmes, CEO HootSuite. "This partnership is another example of HootSuite's commitment to our clients' success, and to providing the market-leading functionality that our Enterprise clients expect."

"At Webtrends, we believe that analytics drive insight and insight drives more effective digital marketing," said AlexYoder, CEO, Webtrends. "Our new partnership with HootSuite will provide marketers with unprecedented insights into social media engagement and effectiveness leading to valuable, quantifiable, and repeatable social media marketing optimization for organizations of all types."

HootSuite and Webtrends will host a webinar on how enterprises can grow and realize value from their social media investments on October 16th, 2012 at 2PM EDT (11AM PDT) entitled ScalingSocial - ActionableDataforEveryDepartment.

This talk centers around how to automate best practices in a multi-/hybrid-cloud world based on our work with customers like GE, Discovery Communications and Fannie Mae. Today’s enterprises are reaping the benefits of cloud computing, but also discovering many risks and challenges. In the age of DevOps and the decentralization of IT, it’s easy to over-provision resources, forget that instances are running, or unintentionally expose vulnerabilities.
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...
