When a client speaks with an ad agency about setting up a campaign, they naturally expect that agency to know their way around Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other social media.

While we love measuring our Twitter success in terms of followers or influence, most marketers are really after one thing, and one thing only: conversions. How many of those Twitter followers eventually become actual customers?
Well, as Marketing Pilgrim tells us, there’s a new study that offers good news and bad news for social media marketing defenders. Apparently, Twitter doesn’t convert very many followers into purchasers – but those that do convert spend a lot.
