  • 6. Company Confidential 6 Campaign Setup • Setup Brand and Competitor Keywords • Use Express and Advanced Keywords
  • 7. Company Confidential 7 Campaign Setup Express Keywords • These are singular words or phrases that you want to listen for. Ideal when you don’t need complex queries. • Examples: • #jetblue • @jetblue • american airlines • “fly american” (use quotes for exact match) • “south west” flying • “J. C. Penney” (use quotes when there’s punctuation) • “Macy’s”
  • 8. Company Confidential 8 Express Keyword Setup Adding an express keyword is quick and simple! • Only alphanumeric and punctuation characters are allowed (e.g. + $ % are not allowed) • Up to 30 words/terms are allowed in one keyword • Hover over an existing keyword to delete (editing not allowed)
  • 9. Company Confidential 9 Advanced Keyword Setup Advanced Keywords • Advanced keywords allow creation of sophisticated queries tailored to meet specific needs. You can use Boolean operators, quotes, parenthesis, nested queries and proximity operations. • Interface gives you full power with built-in “Syntax Validation” • Hover over an existing Advanced keyword to edit/delete it • Characters other than alphanumeric characters and basic punctuation are not allowed. There’s a limit of 30 terms within a single advanced keyword.
  • 10. Company Confidential 10 Effective Keyword Setup 5 Steps to Creating Highly Effective Advanced Keywords 1. Use Boolean operators to create queries which provide relevant results: • AND – use AND to match all terms eg (“I want” AND tesla) • OR – allows you to match any ONE of the term eg @ibm OR #ibm • NOT – excludes terms from results 2. Use parenthesis to group certain words among more than one kind of Boolean operator. Examples: • (#Jetblue OR @jetblue) AND (customer service) NOT stadium • (#fail OR sucks) AND (#tmobile OR (“t-mobile” AND service)) 3. Make sure to include #hashtags, @names and other variations 4. Use quotation marks for a phrase or term with punctuation to listen for (a) exact match of that phrases (aka strict match) (b) when exact order of words in the phrase is important. 5. Use proximity operator ~ to listen for words within a certain distance of each other (quotes must be used when using ~). For example: “Jetblue best” ~5 will match this tweet: Jetblue has the best service
  • 11. Company Confidential 11 Campaign Level Exclusions • The exclusion filters defined here apply to the entire set of keywords in your listening campaign • Exclusions can be based on keywords (exact match), URLs (full / partial) and @twitter handles • Example case: You work in the airline industry – Keyword= “american airlines” – Exclude: “american airlines center” OR basketball • See our knowledgebase on how to apply exclusions retroactively to already collected content
  • 12. Company Confidential 12 Campaign Setup: Language and Location Filters Geo-location Filters • Listen for mentions in specific places – Country – Country and Region (US States and Canadian Provinces) • Strict vs. Not Strict – Strict: only pulls content with a geo-tag added to the post – Not Strict: Includes posts where location cannot be determined Language Filters • Only pull content in certain languages using this filter (restrictive filter) • MutualMind can listen for social content in 53 different languages
  • 13. Company Confidential 13 Language and Location Filters Geo-location Filters Language Filters
  • 14. Company Confidential 14 Keyword Alerts Add any of the existing keywords for alerts. Email is sent out when activity level for that keyword changes (up or down) significantly.
  • 15. Company Confidential 15 Campaign Setup: Social Channels Track Brand and Competitor Social Channels • Add Facebook pages, Twitter, RSS feeds and YouTube channels to collect all social posts on that channel • Track channel metrics such as fan increase on your own social media and your competitors
  • 16. Company Confidential 16 Campaign Setup: Tags and Groupings Content Tags • Tags allow you to organize and search content easily. Every campaign starts with two content tags: 1. “Not Relevant”- allows you to remove irrelevant content 2. “Add to Report”- adds content to reports • Create custom content tags – Define your own tags to organize and segment content – Tagged content can be easily found using Tags filter in “Insights > Content Browser” Keyword Groupings • Group several keywords together for easier analysis • Compare and analyze keyword groupings in the “Insights > Keyword Performance” view
  • 17. Company Confidential 17 Campaign: User Access Control An admin can grant (non-admin) users access to any campaign as:  “Read only” access – no changes allowed to setup  “Read and Write” access i.e. ability to view and modify setup for a specific campaign. This process needs to be repeated for each campaign to which a user needs access to..
  • 18. Company Confidential 18 Campaign Setup Tips 1 Tips and Tricks to Creating an Effective Campaign • First, decide what you want to accomplish with your listening campaign. • Put yourself in the shoes of the public. Include many variations of the words you want to listen for, such as common misspellings, hashtags and @ symbols – Example: “doctor pepper” OR “dr pepper” OR “dr. pepper” OR #drpepper OR @drpepper • Use caution with abbreviations or terms which can have multiple meanings or , e.g. MLS, SPI or SIM – If you need to listen for an abbreviation, use an advanced keyword and add other common words that people would mention when discussing your topic – Example: (“major league soccer” OR mls) AND (team OR teams OR soccer OR game OR games)
  • 19. Company Confidential 19 Campaign Setup Tips 2 Tips and Tricks to Creating an Effective Campaign • Add exclusions when possible. • Strive for a manageable number of results. – Too much data can be overwhelming. A small team won’t be able to respond directly to posts, and data may or may not be littered with irrelevant content. – Avoid using common/single words i.e. burger or football • Put two or more words together as a keyword if the name of the brand is common for other uses – Example: Target and Walmart – Walmart will pull content only about Walmart, but Target will pull posts discussing archery, meeting a monthly target, target weight etc. • Try: target AND shopping, target AND store
