  3. 3. Accurately tracking brand sentiment—how people feel about your brand on social—is vital to strategic marketing. A sentiment analysis—which analyzes the thousands of tweets, likes, posts, updates, discussions, product ratings and reviews, and so on—can offer quantifiable metrics that reveal how your products, promotions, and marketing messages are resonating with target audiences.

  4. 4. Don’t just monitor the main social networks. Social is much bigger than Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. It also includes blogs, forums, and other types of online communities. 1
  5. 5. Look for sentiment trends over time Just as you wouldn’t make product decisions based on one day of web page traffic spikes, don’t make marketing decisions based on one day of sentiment—good or bad. Generally, you should look for trends over time to better gauge how consumers really feel about your brand. Of course, there are exceptions: if your website crashes or breaking news about your company or its partners emerges, your marketing and PR teams may need to move quickly in the name of reputation management or corporate responsibility. 2
  6. 6. Use negative sentiment as lead generation Listening to what people are saying about your competitors can showcase weak spots in their offering. Think of it as an opportunity to help, and have the appropriate salesperson send the customer something useful. Are people dissatisfied with a competitor’s product? Can your product pick up the slack? Monitoring the competition can help you create tighter messaging around their weaknesses and drive more leads for your sales team. 3
  7. 7. Sort posts by sentiment type Set up a social listening tool to rank the sentiment of each post so you can quickly scan the good, the bad, and the urgent— and respond accordingly. 4
