How to monitor media in 2021
What is media monitoring?
Media monitoring is listening to who’s saying what about your brand, your competitors, your industry, and any other topic that’s important to you and your operations. In today’s world, media monitoring must include more than just print, extending to online, broadcast and social media.
Why is media monitoring important?
With new information being created every second of every day, analyzing and processing every bit of new broadcast media, online streams, and social media can be overwhelming. But finding that one mention can yield dramatic results for your PR department, customer service organization, or marketing team.
What are the main reasons that I should monitor my media mentions?
In 2021, you need to know what is going on not only with your organization, but what the competition is doing along with the broader industry trends.
Our customers use media monitoring to better understand their target audience, analyze brand reputation and perception, mitigate industry risk by knowing more about their competition, evaluating the performance of their marketing and PR teams, and finally identifying journalists or influencers for outreach efforts.
