Improve customer experience with advanced A.I. and deep analytics.
Social listening refers to the process of monitoring significant online channels for mentions of your brand, competitors, and other related keywords. Utilize real-time online data to transform your understanding of brand sentiment and brand reach, as well as how you engage with customers.
Top Social Listening Use Cases
The top three use cases we see from customers who use social listening are brand monitoring, competitive intelligence, and crisis management.
1 Brand Monitoring
After implementing social listening, you’ll gain a precise understanding of customer sentiment towards your brand’s behavior online. For example, you can not only know how customers regard your brand in a crisis situation but also if your posts, responses, PR and actions are meeting the issue with an adequate response.
2 Competitive Insight
Social listening can easily enable you to check out competitors’ campaigns and see what their customers like or dislike about them. Monitoring the successes and failures of your competition ensures that you aren’t measuring your business’s own performance in a silo. Analyzing the number of times your competitors mentioned online, the sentiments of their mentions, and audience demographic will provide the insights that allow you to optimize your own campaigns to produce even better results.
3 Crisis Management
Social listening allows you to follow what’s happening in real time and the sentiment around it. That might be a product launch or a conference. But more importantly, you can get ahead of a crisis before it happens. These tools will enable you to improve reaction time and deploy service recovery measures. Those actions may include showing empathy to an disgruntled customer or delivering the necessary post-mortem communication after the crisis has been solved.
