1. Introduction

This case study explores how the adoption of Brand24 has helped Global66 with a better approach to public relations, customer experience, and market research.

Global66, a leading FinTech company in Latin America, aims to democratize regional financial services by making them more accessible, offering a truly global account.

2. Problem

Brands, regardless of their size or industry, often face significant challenges in tracking the impact of public relations activities and managing customer interactions.

The complexities of manual web searching and data gathering leave marketers to work on assessing the effectiveness of their communications strategies accurately.

This approach offers limited insights into customer sentiments and needs, making it difficult for companies to tailor their services to meet customer expectations effectively. The lack of precise and actionable data slows brands from fully leveraging media chances.

3. Solution

Brand24 enabled the company to comprehensively monitor social media and other digital platforms, providing real-time feedback on public perception and customer experiences.

The capabilities of the tool include tracking mentions, analyzing sentiments, and identifying key influencers and brand ambassadors. This has allowed Maria Camila and her team to listen actively to their audience and respond promptly to users' needs.

4. Results

Customer Experience Enhancements

Global66 has effectively implemented Brand24 to enhance its customer experience (CX) strategies and gain actionable insights from social media interactions. 

By March 2024, Brand24's analytics enabled Global66 to track and address negative comments, transforming 18% of such reviews into positive feedback. This impressive turnaround is part of a broader CX initiative where all customer comments are systematically gathered and analyzed.

Despite having a large team dedicated to customer experience, using Brand 24 revealed some surprising insights. It flagged details like, "This user has made 14 comments," which proved to be incredibly useful. As the Head of Communications, it enabled me to alert the CX team about particular users and their comments.

The insights from this data are used to inform continuous improvements in the app, ensuring that changes are aligned with user expectations and preferences. Through Brand24, Global66 monitors customer sentiments and actively engages with them, significantly enhancing user satisfaction and service quality.

Brand Ambassador Acquisition

Brand24 also helps in recruiting brand ambassadors. Unlike paid influencers, these ambassadors earn through a referral system by promoting a unique link within their content on platforms like YouTube and Instagram, generating revenue when new users first transaction. This approach has revealed numerous effective ambassadors with substantial social media followings.

One notable success story involves a popular education-focused Instagram page, which also runs a YouTube channel and a podcast specializing in finance. Despite previous attempts to engage them, it wasn’t until Brand24 highlighted their organic mention of Global66 that the company initiated fruitful negotiations. Recognizing their familiarity with the brand facilitated a smoother partnership dialogue. 

This approach led us to discover many brand ambassadors we weren't even aware of, many of whom had substantial followings on their social media platforms. Interestingly, some ambassadors who shared their links with their followers eventually became influencers for us.

“For example, if I see that in Chile, there's a buzz about how it's better to save money in a U.S. account, I can use that info. I might put out a press release explaining how you don’t need a U.S. account because with Global66, even if you’re in Chile, you can have an account in dollars and use it for saving,” explains Maria and adds that she takes what she finds on Brand 24 and use it to craft press releases, interviews, and messages to share with their different audiences.
