Social Media Monitoring

The situation

The growth of social technologies and communities has empowered the voice of people (especially consumers’ and customers’ voice) more than ever before. In this direction and according to latest reports, 84% of online adults find it helpful to know what others think, while 75% say it influences their purchase decision1. In addition, a whooping 90% of bloggers say they post comments about the brands they love and the brands they hate2.

Thus, what really matters is not what you say about your brand but what millions of consumers are saying about it in online conversations that take place in social networks, blogs, message boards, forums etc. Ignoring all that information and peoples’ influence could put your business at significant risk.
