A plethora of online monitoring resources

As Seen In...


Welcome to those of you who have arrived here after watching my BrightTALK webinar on social listening. If you didn’t get here because of the webinar, you’re welcome too (it’s here if you fancy a look).

As the great Brian Solis said, “There’s too much talking in social media and too little listening and learning”. This is so true. People are clambering at each other to get their word out there and cut through the noise. But  if you sit back, find the right people and just … listen, you could unearth a wealth of insight for your business.

In my webinar, I discuss the reasons why social listening (or monitoring) is so important to business. I also talk about the various tools on offer to help us do it. The thing is, there are so many. It’s easy to get lost if you don’t understand this world. Well, my friends, I’m here to help. I’ve rounded up some of the best resources on the web to help you understand the fascinating world of social listening. I hope it’s useful.
