Since the gen­eral release of Adobe Social this past Sep­tem­ber, we have seen sig­nif­i­cant cus­tomer adop­tion by a wide array of com­pa­nies, including:

As we’ve engaged with these cus­tomers, it has become increas­ingly clear how impor­tant it is for mar­keters to con­nect social efforts with busi­ness results. Adobe Social’s foun­da­tion in web ana­lyt­ics has empow­ered mar­keters to answer pre­vi­ously impos­si­ble ques­tions around social value and ROI. They are prov­ing the impact of likes and com­ments on engage­ment, traf­fic, and sale conversions.

We want to know, how do you mea­sure the impact of your social efforts?

This year’s Adobe Sum­mit includes a com­pre­hen­sive social track with ten unique social pre­sen­ta­tions focused on how to bet­ter lever­age social data to opti­mize per­for­mance and deliver improved results. Social-specific ses­sions are also sprin­kled across the Dig­i­tal Adver­tis­ing, Tech Labs, Tar­get­ing and Opti­miza­tion, and Mar­ket­ing Inno­va­tions tracks (see the list below).  All ses­sions will be dri­ven by indus­try thought lead­ers, includ­ing cus­tomers, part­ners, ana­lysts, and our own Adobe experts. Social ROI will also be a focus in keynotes and demon­stra­tions dur­ing the main stage presentations.
