http://www.slideshare.net/cywong_/kz-brand-monitoring-guideLet’s take a familiar brand like Red Bull as an example:Positive example: Someone is monitoring the brand Red Bull online and he comes across a tweet that says: “I really enjoy the new Red Bull Cranberry”From there, our brand angel can tweet back and say… “Cool I’m glad you like it, have you ever considered trying our new Blueberry flavour?”Negative example: Dude, I really hate the new Red Bull Cranberry. It blows!!!Competition: In the case of Red Bull, we would be monitoring the latest activities from Monster and Rock StarContent Drivers: For example, Red Bull did an ad called “Jesus Walks on Water,” and people on YouTube were typing in negative comments saying that the ad was offensive
By looking at this diagram, here are some examples of online resources that are monitored:Blog Posts (Tumblr)Review Sites (Yelp…Restaurant critic site)ForumsPress Releases (A form of PR)Competitive websites (Monitoring their recent marketing activities and their consumer feedback)MOST IMPORTANTLY… Social Networks (Facebook, Twitter etc.)
This involves being proactive, where instead of just sitting back and letting the negative comments pile up, you take action and monitor to ensure that favourable comments are at the top of search engines/social websites and the negative are completely erasedYou do not want your company to suffer too much negativity and hate, which would lead to poor rankingsAstroturfing refers to paying someone who writes something positive about a certain company online.

Now, please direct your attention to this video, where Professor Hans Von Puppet, a spokesperson from Goal Clicks gives a little input and some facts on Reputation Management *STOP AT 1:00*
B2BMonitor competitorsMonitor current marketing strategiesMeasuring online presence, which would lead to a solid reputation Maximizing benefits and filtering out negative reviewsAll these factors would link directly to B2C, since every company wants to have a positive image, which would in term affect their reputation with consumersFor consumers it would increase their overall buying potential because, according to the video that we just showed, the puppet mentioned that 90% of people would look online before making a final purchase, such as user reviews!If you monitor your brand properly, you will receive a higher ranking in search engines, which would make these pages very visible to consumersAt all comes down to being on page #1!
A positive image for a for-profit company would lead to higher brand loyalty and annual revenuesWhile a positive image for a non-profit organization would lead to an increase in your cause and, in turn, more donationsThis is important because, if a certain charity, such as Heart and Stroke, had a bad image, nobody would want to donate their money, time, and energy towards their causeWhen monitoring non-profit organizations, the most important thing to look at would be
