2. Use Cases of Brand24

Building relationships

MailerLite uses Brand24 to build stronger relationships actively. They also use Brand24 with a Slack plugin to monitor their online reputation. For Lay and her team, customer satisfaction is the priority, and hearing from people is of utmost importance. It’s not just another brand mention! It’s real people sharing their thoughts that will help MailerLite improve. Lay and her team reach out with gratitude when referenced in a blog post or elsewhere. The main goal is to create lasting connections with everyone who engages — both customers and potential customers.   

One remarkable aspect of MailerLite's approach is that it positively impacts smaller businesses and entrepreneurs. When a big brand like MailerLite actively engages, it's a pleasant surprise because people often don't necessarily expect a response from a larger company. This personalized method builds strong bonds, nurtures potential brand advocates, and generates enthusiasm.

These personal interactions are valuable for their insights, but many can also be used as testimonials to strengthen social proof and trust. In the future, MailerLite plans to create a focus group with these advocates, allowing them to share their insights and experiences. Some advocates have already been vocal about their support and sharing their experiences, which has been incredibly helpful for her brand's growth.

We employ Brand24 to establish stronger relationships. Instead of merely observing our brand mentioned somewhere, we proactively engage.

Analyzing results of marketing efforts

MailerLite uses Brand24 for other crucial purposes:

  • Analyzing the results of their marketing efforts
  • Comparing different periods
  • Evaluating the success of their marketing campaigns 

For example, Lay examines the data during special occasions like Black Friday and Cyber Monday, comparing it to previous years when these campaigns weren't run. This analysis helps them understand the effectiveness of their marketing strategies and make informed decisions about running similar campaigns in the future.

The primary focus is on significant moments, such as holidays or times when their target audience is most active. These periods serve as valuable benchmarks for assessing their monthly performance. An illustrative example shared in the interview relates to their experience with Black Friday. In a 33-day campaign, they vigilantly monitored their brand's presence, witnessing noteworthy growth. A staggering 20% surge in the brand's visibility occurred within a mere month!

Simultaneously, their social media reach experienced a significant boost, expanding by an impressive 169% during the same period. Moreover, their brand received numerous mentions across various platforms, and most of these mentions conveyed a positive sentiment. This prompted a more informed approach to upcoming holiday campaigns.

With the help of Brand24, we could see that our brand received substantial mentions across various platforms, with predominantly positive sentiments. This data helps us see patterns and trends, making it easier to monitor our brand's reputation.

Online reputation management

Brand24 is also used for online monitoring. In the vast online world, pinpointing specific information sources can be challenging. It's an ample space, and finding the exact origins of changes or mentions can be tricky. However, when monitoring their brand, Brand24 proves valuable by filtering out the noise and highlighting essential mentions.

Mailerlite stresses the importance of filtering the many mentions they collect because not all are worth their attention. They mainly focus on finding two or three significant blog posts each week, particularly interested in podcast mentions, blog posts, and news articles. This approach helps them prioritize the most crucial sources of information for their roles.


It's useful to see trends and patterns emerge, particularly when it comes to brand monitoring. Brand24 helps filter out the noise and highlight significant mentions, which is invaluable.
