Just as importantly, monitoring beyond your brand name gives you an idea of consumer needs, problems, and demographic profiles.<br />Top Influencers<br />Certain individuals hold a lot of online influence within their domain. In your particular industry they may have the largest number of Twitter followers, or the most commented blog, or the highest traffic forum.

Like top influencers, by addressing the key conversations you will get the most bang for your social media buck.<br />Competitors<br />Like you, your competitors are online. Having insight on their online reputations can help you plan your engagements. Their dissatisfied customers could be your potential customers.
