Listening pinpoints problems that cause negative feedback and creates opportunities for your brand to solve them. The result - positive brand sentiment and more sales leads.

Listening gathers information from a range of sources including blogs, websites, forums, review sites, social networks and much more.
  • Perception Analysis

    Listening mines customer opinion to determine if they are saying positive or negative things (or staying neutral) on different online channels. It gives you a real, unbiased view about how people perceive your brand.

  • Competitive Analysis

    Listening is not just for the benefit of your consumers. By monitoring conversations surrounding your competitors, you can gain valuable intelligence, especially on problems that your rival brands can’t solve.

  • Customer Service Enrichment

    Most comments about your brand don’t use your official handle. In other words, many conversations are about you rather than with you, and your business is missing out. By including such discussions as part of the process, listening gives you the opportunity to surprise your customers by weighing in even when they don’t mention you directly.

  • Reputation Management

    The massive volume of information on social media makes it challenging to control and address negative conversations about your brand proactively. If left unaddressed, they can cause long-term damage to your business reputation. Listening comes to the rescue by pinpointing where the conversations are happening so that your social media managers can resolve them on time.

  • Actionable Data

    In the shop, on the streets, through Facebook - conversations happen everywhere. But thanks to the scale and reach of social media, they are amplified and multiply quickly. An expert listening team helps to filter out the noise and pinpoint the data that is critical for your business.
