  • The most powerful and flexible way of viewing your data
    I believe they’re the most robust, customizable component
  • Quick overview of what charts you’ll see and how to add your own custom charts to dashboards
    Go through the different options for filtering
    We’ll go through a few examples as well as their business use cases
    I’ll let you know a quick trick for when your charts look weird
    And then we’ll practice a bit, I’ll call some of you up here so you can impress everyone with your new skills.
  • On the charts tab, you’ll see these three lovely charts.
    Sentiment by day is going to show you the total query volume on the y-axis, and then it’s broken down by day on the x-axis and finally by sentiment within the bars.
    Page types by day is a very similar view, but instead of sentiment, it’s broken down by page types
    The third kind of combines the first two charts, so your x-axis becomes the page types, and you’re looking at the total breakdown of the entire query volume for the selected timeframe.
    You can click in to any of these bars to see the mentions they represent, which I’ll cover more a bit later.
  • Scroll down to the bottom of any tab
    Click Add a Component
    This screen will pop up
    Click General > Chart > Add to Dashboard to add a new chart to your tab
    Will show, by default, a stacked bar chart showing the total volume of mentions for each day broken down by sentiment. (so, the first chart we just looked at)
  • Once this is open, though, you can choose to view the chart in different ways
    Right now, we’re looking at a stacked bar chart
    But we can choose any of these options and our view will change, even though it’s the same data
  • Within a chart, there are three main controls that let you control the data
    Take a good look!
  • Let’s start with the shorter filter list – the “Show” column (otherwise known as the Y-axis)
    This is your vertical breakdown, so the metric on the left
    Volume is the most commonly used one here
    I’ve seen clients break down Unique Authors by Quarter, which I’ll go into a bit later…but this metric is good to see account growth or campaign success
  • Now on to the big lists…I’ve put a puppy on each slide to curb any anxiety, which I’ve either way overestimated or it’ll be a welcome addition
    I’ve broken it down by heading
  • Queries
    This is used when you want to work with the entire query as the base dataset, which can be broken down later
    This is used when you want to use a query group as your base dataset
  • Sentiment
    This is what you see on the default charts
  • If you’ve already set up an author list, which is a group of mention authors, you can filter your results by that list.
  • All of this is Twitter only
    Account type: individual or organization
    Gender: male or female
    Profession: Executive, student, politician, artist, scientist, journalist, software developer, legal, health
    Interests: animals/pets, fine arts, automotive, beauty/health, books, business, environment, family/parenting, fashion
    Geolocation data
  • If you already have tags or categories set up and applied to your mentions
    You can compare multiple categories, as a whole, against each other (in a later example, you’ll see total holiday flavor volume compared to total standard flavor volume)
  • If you set up workflow within your mentions
    You can use multiple charts to track workflow success over time, or if you want to see the amount of mentions checked per person over time, for example
  • How granular, time-wise, you want your results to be
    From hours to months
  • If you’ve already set up a site list, this is where you can filter that into a chart
    Page type – so twitter, facebook, etc
    Domain - .com, .biz, etc.
    Mozrank – this is not our metric, but helps define social power
  • You can see what languages are most popular among your mentions
    Especially useful if you’re monitoring multiple countries or if you want to find keywords to help eliminate spam that’s in the wrong language
  • Relies on geolocation data (all, not just Twitter)
  • Mention what uncategorized mentions button does
    If multiple categories can be applied to a mention, then one mention may be counted in two places
    To isolate a subcategory, you can do this in the filters section
    Identify categories with a smaller market share, insight into why (large negative sentiment = something is way wrong, maybe it’s gross)
    If you saw a large negative spike, see if there is a common thread that you can go in and fix
  • First view of a pie chart in this presentation
    This is a pretty standard “Share of Voice” analysis
    View your mention volume vs your competitors
    If you want to see how a campaign is doing, if you were pushing a certain flavor
  • Here you can see branded vs unbranded conversation
    Good time to jump into conversations
    You can see if people are associating your product with being a generic name for the product
    Expanding your audience session – next timeslot on Advanced track
    "also show uncategorized mentions"
  • more in-depth timeline analysis vs “history” component
    Campaign tracking and success
    Volume over time like you see on the summary component, but broken down to be more granular
    You can click in to spikes to see what’s up
  • From here, you can add tags, add mentions to a new tab, etc., to analyze
    View > topics for quick topical analysis of all the mentions to identify why there was a spike in mentions
  • Click a topic to zoom in
    New social media strategy/trying to build a community - proof it's working
    Filter by Twitter only
    Compare entire categories to each other, making the parent category function almost like a tag
    Here, I showed how holiday flavors had a bigger share of voice in December, but people were still talking about them in March
    Use side-by-side components to compare date ranges
  • You must filter by US
    You can click into individual days
    See most influential states for a campaign or in general
    Honestly, it mostly just looks pretty, but it’s a good/simple way to see mentions broken down by state, especially in the table view
    See how different genders differ in opinion
    Example of how you can compare different demographic data side-by-side

    37. 37. Chart Practice © 2014 Brandwatch | 37
    38. 38. © 2014 Brandwatch | 38 Add a Chart component to the dashboard. Create a line chart that shows a volume comparison over time, broken down by day, of male versus female conversation. Create a horizontal bar chart showing the volume of conversation by page type, broken down by week. In a table view, create a chart that shows how many mentions in each flavor category either say “Starbucks” or don’t say “Starbucks” within the mention. Make sure the flavors run along the left side of the table. Create a bar chart showing what flavors people in different professions prefer (mention volume).
