Not too long ago, an agency tracked its client’s success through article clippings. The problem with this kind of metric was its inherent simplicity: It didn’t take into account important variables such as quality of media coverage, tone and how the overall coverage rated against that of rival companies. Consequently, an agency and client company never received a fully rounded, detailed picture when tracking and measuring a campaign’s success and its effect on the bottom line. With the advent of the Web 2.0 universe, old measurement methodologies like clippings have been superseded by newer, more sophisticated tactics. On the downside, a dizzying array of new metrics have surfaced, making it difficult for some agencies and their client companies to figure out which methods will work best for them.
