PR start measuring not just outputs, but outcomes A. Outputs = Volume B. Outcomes = Message pull through, sentiment, Share of Voice 2. Set yourself up for success with small victories. This probably means going outside of the organizational comfort zone by generating an insight from non-traditional data sources. 3. More may not be better; have a business questions first and then align your data inputs to maximize the insight; maximize the role of analytics / modeling to deliver insights 20. 20 Top Tips 1.

What we have learned 21 What is Big Data? Large data sets, not traditionally used in modeling or analytics In the strictest sense, PR measurement and evaluation is not Big Data; is it Valuable data! Why join the conversation? If you do not have data that can go into the model; you are not part of the equation If you are not part of the equation; you are not part of the solution Affects your ability to get the resources you need Value of what you do is not appreciated 22. What we have learned 22 Getting started You must have more than output like volume of coverage; need to have quality data like message pull through and sentiment If truly looking to integrate PR Comm data with other marketing data and big data like clickstream data, social etc; start small focus on one business unit Remove barriers to information; get C-suite support / use your agency to help you break down internal information barriers to get access to all data sets within a company Data driven decisions tend to be better ones BUT they do not replace the need for vision and human insight 23.
