VOZIQ’s Step-by-Step Process for Using Social Media to Grow Your Business

Businesses today ignore what’s being said about them in the social media at their own peril. In these uncertain and highly competitive times, marketing strategies need to include input and data from every available source. New technologies have created analytic tools that can help you understand what is being said in the various social media outlets about your business, your competitors and your industry. Listening to potential customers in the social media outlets allows you to understand what consumers are saying about both your brand and your competitors’ brands.

At VOZIQ, we use analytics to make the most of the opportunities that social media conversations present. Today, you must not only know what people are saying about your business, but you must also know what’s going on throughout your industry. What people are saying about your competition is just as important as what they’re saying about you! It boils down to three details that need to be monitored and tracked:

• the buzz about your brand
• the buzz about your competitors’ brand
• the buzz about the industry sector you are part of

Everything about the buzz needs to be analyzed. Is it positive or is it negative? What topics are people discussing and what is the sentiment for each topic? The list goes on, and the scope of the information seems infinite. It may even seem to be an overwhelming task to aggregate and quantify the data in a meaningful way. But it CAN be aggregated and quantified, and when it is put to good use, the resulting marketing benefits are enormous.

Using sophisticated analytical techniques, VOZIQ is able to track all that is being said about your business, about your competitors, and about your industry. Then we convert all this data so that it can be aggregated and analyzed, we combine it with metadata from the world of SEO, and we present you with a series of reports that contain specific recommendations.

Our detailed reports can provide you all of the information you need in order to optimize your marketing campaign, even your entire business model. We provide our expert advice and guidance on how to make the best use of the social media buzz by following a step-by-step action plan.

An example of this plan and the graphic reports that emerge from each step is shown in the attached report.

In these uncertain and highly competitive times, marketing strategies need to includeinput and data from every available source. New technologies have created analytic toolsthat can help you understand what is being said in the various social media outlets aboutyour business, your competitors and your industry.

Today, you must not only know what people are saying about yourbusiness, but you must also know what’s going on throughout your industry. What peopleare saying about your competition is just as important as what they’re saying about you! Itboils down to three details that need to be monitored and tracked: ›› the buzz about your brand ›› the buzz about your competitors’ brand ›› the buzz about the industry sector you are part of Everything about the buzz needs to be analyzed.

We provide our expert adviceand guidance on how to make the best use of the social media buzz by following a step-by-step action plan. An example of this plan and the graphic reports that emerge fromeach step is shown below.www.voziq.com 1-888-427-2328 Copyright 2012 VOZIQ
  • Social Media Analytics Best PracticesStep 1: Measure Your Share of the VolumeThe first step is to understand the share of volume that your brand has in the total socialmedia buzz. This means that when looking at the buzz surrounding your industry, you cansee what percentage of that buzz is about each brand. We call this “share of volume.” Inother words, if 60% of the buzz in the software industry, whether it is positive or negative,was about Company X, we would say that Company X has a 60% share of the volume.The graph below is an example of how we would display volume share in our report.It is important to understand that this is a “big picture” view. This gives you an idea of whatbrands have the highest awareness level. But don’t mistake awareness for popularity.Just because there is a high volume of buzz about a certain brand, it doesn’t mean thatthe buzz is positive. A higher share of volume does not necessarily mean high popularity.www.voziq.com 1-888-427-2328 Copyright 2012 VOZIQ
  • Social Media Analytics Best PracticesStep 2: Measure the Sentiment BalanceOnce you get a picture of how the buzz is divided in your industry (Step 1 above), it’simportant to see what kind of buzz each brand has – positive or negative. We call this the“sentiment balance.”In this graph, you can see how the sentiment balances of the different brands compare.The Agricultural Bank of China is in the enviable position of have the highest possiblepositive buzz rating (1.0) and the lowest possible negative buzz rating (0.0).The combination of a brand’s positive and negative buzz ratings results in a net sentimentbalance or a net sentiment score. Scotiabank, for example, has a net sentiment score of.552 (.776 - .224). The higher the net sentiment score, the better the buzz for that brand.www.voziq.com 1-888-427-2328 Copyright 2012 VOZIQ
