Itโ€™s a powerful form of public relations insight to develop a communication strategy, content plan and tone of voice.โ€

Competitor analysis

Set up Search Listening Alerts to monitor your own brand, and do the same for competitors so you can keep an eye out for whatโ€™s going on in their world.

Reputation Management

Once you set up an alert you will be notified about any new searches around you, your brand, your organisation...or even a product. This will allow you to react when anythingโ€“whether itโ€™s negative or positiveโ€“changes. Interesting stuff.

Search Listening is the process of understanding what an audience truly thinks.

Use the ultimate source of insightโ€“search dataโ€“to see the unbiased perspectives of millions of people.

Learn what people really think, not what they say they think

Itโ€™s candid, honest insight, which makes it incredibly valuable...particularly when it comes to tracking trust and reputation.

Reduce the potential for flawed data

Search listening is less suceptible to unreliable responses, which can happen in surveys, or the from a desire to project a certain image rather than reality, which is a risk with social data.

Itโ€™s how you listen to what people want, that will set you apart from the competition.

Imagine what youโ€™re missing out on if you donโ€™t. Search listening is the insight Public Relations needs, now.
