FastTrack Series: Using Social Analytics for Business Advantage

12 Davis Dr, Durham, NC 27703, USA 
There is growing interest in determining whether social media analytics can provide new insight into business performance. But, are these new data sources optimal or added noise for timely decision making? We will examine how to apply social analytics and predictive modeling techniques to live, publicly available social media feeds. We will also discuss leading research that examines the role of social influence in conversion. Find out how social insights can effectively cut through the noise to better inform decision making in timeliness of messaging, brand influence and other key areas across competitive marketing landscapes. We will also explore how to create a culture of analytics and social discovery in your workplace. Faculty: Dr. Bill Rand.
