From Feedback To Strategy: How Social Listening Can Support Your Brand

Admit it: at some point, you’ve wished you could be a fly on the wall for something. It's okay, we all want to be in the room where it happens! This becomes possible with social listening - a critical strategy that collects relevant online buzz and information about a brand and its wider industry. 

Social listening tracks tags, mentions, and comments about a brand on various digital platforms, including popular social media sites, internet forums, and blogs, to gather valuable insights about customer opinions, industry trends, and what competition is up to. 

Any stand-out social media agency or brand should be using a form of social listening as a tool for success. Let's get into how you can add this to your toolbox! 

Where There Is Conversation, There Is Opportunity 

Brands and social media agencies can source unbeatable outcomes and impressive feedback from their clients just by implementing social listening. With the right social listening practices in place, such as optimizing keywords, topics, and competition, an agency can get all the juicy details and insights to jump on new opportunities and source unlimited growth!  

By leveraging social listening, we can see a number of benefits, including,

Unbeatable Insight Into Customer’s REAL Thoughts About A Brand 

Where do customers go to share their most honest thoughts? These days, social media! A social media agency should be standing by to closely monitor what is being said about their client’s brand to quickly respond to all feedback, reinforce the brand mission, address any issues, and prevent any reputational damage. 

Brands can then give feedback on niche customer preferences, needs, and concerns, helping their clients long term in adapting their products, services, or strategies to better align with their target audience.

Competitive Analysis Opportunity 

Through social listening, brands can understand clients' competitors, and learn about their future goals to uncover opportunities and potential threats. Successful, growth-minded brands should always be one step ahead and social listening lends itself to trend spotting, to stay relevant. 

Fosters Long-term and Loyal Brand Experience 

For a brand to succeed, the clientele needs to not only believe in what they are selling but trust it. Through social listening, agencies can step in as a smooth concierge, filing away any queries and concerns, and engaging with customers on behalf of the brand.  Customers love this transparency! It allows them to see things firsthand, develop relationships, and encourage loyalty and retention.
