  • Determine High-Level Objectives
    Become a Detective…
    Where are the conversations happening?
    What are they talking about?
    What form/s of media are being consumed?

  • Start Listening
    Several tools reviewed (all free)
    In the interest of time: what follows is a list only (next slide), and show examples of using them during the Q&A session (if requested)
    Not every tool will find everything
    Become comfortable with knowing that some conversations will still go unnoticed.

    Timeline and Frequency
    Two weeks, to start
    Check-point two days after the exercise started
    Day 1 requires more work than the others (~60 minutes); after that, try to allocate ~30 minutes per day
    As with anything else… you get out of it what you put into it.

  • Determining Next Steps
    Your mileage may vary
    The results of this exercise helped us narrow our focus in
    geographies
    products
    channels/networks
    Now we have a path we can follow

  • Lessons Learned
    Everyone who ‘listened’ said that they learned a lot about their product and their focus area
    Uncovered at least three new sites/locations/channels where something was happening around our brand and product that we didn’t know about before
    We have a better sense of where not to spend some time, at least initially
