NetBase and Jay Baer Launch ebook on How to Use Conversation

NetBase and Jay Baer Launch ebook on How to Use Conversation Mining
and Facebook Data to Thump the Competition 
PORTLAND, OR -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 --  Today at the Explore
conference, NetBase, the Enterprise Social Intelligence Company, has
partnered with keynote speaker Jay Baer to release a new ebook,
"Knockout! Use Conversation Mining + Facebook Data to Thump Your
Competition."  In this ebook, Baer explains why Facebook Insights
isn't enough to measure social success. To truly understand customers
and have an edge over competitors, digital marketers must look at the
quantitative and qualitative side of Facebook "Likes."  
"Social media is not a walk in the park. It takes real work to do it
well. Too many companies focus on obvious, accumulation metrics,
rather than on more nuanced measures that indicate whether the whole
initiative is driving business value," said Baer, president of
Convince & Convert.  
Marketers look at Facebook as a customer acquisition vehicle when in
reality 84 percent of fans report that they are current or former
customers. Additionally, they default to Facebook Insights as
engagement. The problem: the best social media operations can't just
look at numbers -- they must capture qualitative data to make
improvements to content, channel selection, timing and more.
