How?

Let’s take a closer look at the data. The pieces of data, such as the volume of mentions per category, most active sites, and most influential sites, show you where the buzz around your keywords is the biggest. Thanks to that knowledge, we get valuable insight into our brand’s online presence or our competitors’ online marketing results.

Following this lead, you get a clear picture of the strengths and weaknesses of your competitors’ marketing initiatives. You know on which websites and social media platforms your customers (current or potential) are talking about your business, which platforms have a potential for growth and which you’d better leave behind.

This kind of verification of marketing channels may save you a lot of money and effort because, after that, you’ll focus all your forces on channels, which are giving you some valuable return proved by hard data.

When can I use a media monitoring analysis report?

Ok, you know that PDF Reports show a considerable amount of data and can save you a lot of time, effort, and money.

But I guess you may now ask me a question:

How and when can I use this report?

I’d divide the answer to this question into two types of use of the media monitoring and analysis reports – external and internal.

By external use, I mean situations when you need to present the results of your work to your clients, contractors, or potential investors. It can be:

A report showing the results of your digital marketing campaigns for your client.

If you, for example, run a digital marketing agency, preparing such reports for your clients can also make them feel that you care about them, and engage them more in cooperation with you.

Thanks to regular reporting your results, you can regularly verify your marketing initiatives, consult the results with your clients in order to work out the best solutions.

What’s more, thanks to the reports, you can discover the weakest links of your client’s campaigns, and propose activities that will improve these areas, which may increase their income.

A report showing the data and stats of your online presence for potential investors or contractors.

Media monitoring analysis reports can be also your ace up your sleeve when you want to attract new clients or investors for your business.

Prepare the PDF Report before meeting with your potential customers to get to know more about their business and show them that you are well prepared for the meeting, and you know what to do and how to do it. By doing this, you’ll be able to prepare an offer perfectly suited to their needs.

When it comes to investors, such a report will show them previous results of your online presence, how popular you are, how your brand is perceived by your customers, etc.

By internal use, I mean situations when you use the data from the report to verify the results of your marketing initiatives and stats such as:

  • Brand reputation activities
  • The reach of your campaigns
  • Your brand awareness, etc.
