Who should attend

The course is intended for IT, business, and marketing professionals who are involved in social media marketing or social business and who want to understand, interpret and transform social data into effective actions.


This is an intermediate class. Participants should have attended one of our foundation social media classes or are managing a Facebook page on a daily basis. For this class, we assume that participants have an understanding of all social media basics. For an enhanced learning experience, you should ideally have access to the admin of a Facebook business page.

About the course

It is not enough to just employ social media tools. The ability to analyse and understand their impact, is fast becoming a business imperative. The insights embedded within social media can empower your organisation to make intelligent business decisions. These can lead to improvements in your customer and employee loyalty and in maximising the value of your efforts in sales, marketing, customer service, employee relations and product development. By understanding what your customers think about your organisations, products and services, you can then act quickly and remain competitive.

The Social Media Analytics course will help you to analyse and understand the impact of social media. These include:

  • What is the direct value of your Facebook page?
  • What is the ROI through your Twitter?
  • How to measure the impact of business metrics from your website or blog?
  • If you launch a social media campaign, how effective is the campaign?

With the massive volume and unrelenting continuity of social media, content can be overwhelming. How does a business make sense of it? How can you act upon the trends and sentiments within? And more crucially, how do you deliver the right social media intelligence to the right people at the right time to gain a competitive advantage?

During this course, you will learn how to effectively utilise social media analytics to create value for your organisation in the different departments which include:


  • Measure the value of social media to justify a capital investment
  • Integrate and implement an end-to-end social media strategy
  • Provide insights into current campaigns and improve on future ones


  • Develop personalised offers that resonate with customers to increase sales

Product management:

  • Understand consumers in new markets and their specific cultural attributes
  • Develop and evolve products and solutions from direct social media analysis

Customer service:

  • Understand real customer issues and identify trends versus one-of-a-kind issues
  • Respond to and resolve customer issues before they become major problems

Through this course, you will not only learn to interpret the social media data gathered using social media monitoring tools but also, make sense of these data in order to take effective actions.

This course is part of the Digital Innovation & Design Series offered by NUS-ISS.
