No scouring. No tedious searching. Just quality leads. Our proprietary, responsive technology delivers those leads straight to your one-stop dashboard.
  • 8. Buying Signals™ The Data Science team at Vocus currently analyzes the Twitter firehose for 10 different “Buying Signals,” which represent different phases within a buyers decision-making cycle. We use a combination of open-source baseline machine learning libraries (such as support vector machines et al.) and significant in-house proprietary algorithms tailored to our needs to perform the analysis.
  • 9. What Buying Signals™ Look Like
  • 10. Signal Types Users can choose from a variety of signal types to customize the content specifically for their business: Recommendation: These types of buying signals deliver prospects seeking general information. Desire | Shopping | Seeking: These are people who are interested in purchasing a product or service, or have an imminent need. Broken | Stolen: These signals show prospects who have recently broken or lost something they need to replace.

  • 13. Filtering Signals in the Suite
  • 14. Creating Buying Signals™ in the Suite
  • 15. Purpose • Social media has changed the way customers buy things. They engage businesses on their terms, swap information about vendors, and share recommendations and reviews online. Now, technology is offering marketers a new way to catch up. • The Buying Signals™ proprietary software was developed to make it easier for businesses of all sizes struggling to justify the ROI of social media to find valuable prospects on social media, engage with those prospects, and nurture them to sale.
  • 16. According to PricewaterhouseCoopers’ 2011 Global Multi-Channel Consumer Survey, more than 80% of customers now conduct research online before they buy in-store. According to a recent IBM survey, approximately 40% of social media users go to social sites to share opinions and access company reviews. Another 23% of social users log into these sites to interact with brands directly.

  • 22. Challenges • Businesses who aren’t socially savvy may not know how to engage with a prospect once a Buying Signals™ is delivered. • Customers do most of their research online before ever contacting a business, so these brands need content online that can help to verify their credibility.
  • 23. Challenges • Development of contextual language identification – going beyond just keywords and developing a tool to identify contextual need. That is the power in Buying Signals – we’re not just looking for a keyword association, we’re filtering out the tweets that are most likely to be stating a need in context.
  • 24. Metrics • Vocus’ Data Science team processes about 15 million Buying Signals per quarter with the majority being in the middle of the decision-making cycle and then lesser, but still significant populations at both the beginning and end of the cycle. • After we released Buying Signals™, revenue for the full year 2013 was $186.9 million, a 9% increase over the comparable period in 2012.
