Introduction: Understanding The Value O A Fan
Brand marketers have been struggling to understand the impact o their Facebook marketing eortscontribution to their overall marketing success. Many are attempting to establish the return througha campaign-based analysis rather than by a consideration o long-term business value. Conusion inthe industry is widespread and clear principles or Facebook measurement have not been commonlyadopted. This has resulted in missed advantage across agencies, brand teams, and executives in ullyrealizing the potential benets o Facebook marketing.Understanding long-term Facebook an value is a complex undertaking with advanced calculationsrequired across multiple variables. This understanding is rooted in the measureable dierencesbetween users who have “anned” a brand and those who have not. The value is refected not simplyby the action o being a “an” but rather by the value o the audience and the benets “anning” oersthe brand.
