As we know, the digital transformation has been bringing about substantial changes in the way people get information, investigate and buy. In this sense – and particularly in the face of a growing offer where more and more companies offer the same products and services – users tend to opt for those companies that generate trust; that is, by companies that have a good digital reputation. In the search to achieve that reputation, the monitoring process is one of the most important activities to carry out.
Why is the monitoring process important in digital reputation management?
Following what was mentioned above, it follows that companies need, in order to properly manage their reputation, to know what users are saying about it. The monitoring process is precisely in charge of tracking, identifying and knowing what is being said about a brand on the different social networks, platforms, blogs, forums, media, among others. To be able to observe potential reputational risks in advance and properly manage the reputation.
In other words, we can say that monitoring is what allows knowing all the mentions made of a brand in the different digital media. Thus, it is possible to know what consumers or users say, what they think, their complaints, their demands and even their needs or expectations. This helps to identify in more detail what the situation of the brand is in terms of reputation, while allowing more strategic decisions to be made.
How does monitoring help digital reputation?
Among the multiple benefits that a monitoring process can provide a company in terms of digital reputation, the most important are the following:
Allows to know the reactions of the users
Through real-time monitoring tools, you can find out what people are saying about the brand on different platforms and at the same time these comments appear. Thus, it is possible to know the reaction that people are having in front of the products or services or in front of the attention, knowing at all times who is talking about the brand and what they are saying.
Helps identify reputational risks early
By having detailed information on what is being said about the brand, complaints, problems or claims can be identified that may represent potential reputational risks. Recognizing them in advance allows appropriate actions to be taken in time, in order to prevent these risks from leading to a reputational crisis.
Helps meet public expectations
At the same time, having detailed information on what is being said about a brand, its products or services, helps companies make decisions aimed at satisfying the needs or expectations expressed by the public in social media.
How is the monitoring process of a brand developed?
In order to be able to evaluate the aspects mentioned above, it is very important to know which are the issues that should be followed up. In this sense, it is necessary to previously define the keywords associated with the brand and its products or services, subsequently monitoring them in real time.
On the other hand, it is important to carry out a detailed analysis and reports of each action that the brand has on the Internet, both on the web and on social networks and media.
