To successfully move customers through your marketing funnels, you must have a firm grasp on audience research. With social listening, you can use your customer data around those conversations to find new customers, understand the sentiment around your brand, spy on your competitors, and develop more effective marketing messaging.

In this session, we’ll cover the following themes:
1. What is social media listening & how does it work?
2. The difference between social media listening and social media monitoring.
3. Three areas all marketers should be listening in on, using the BIC method + case studies.
4. Sentiment scoring.
5. Analyzing conversations in search of revenue

Join Brooke B. Sellas, Founder & CEO of B Squared Media, for a conversation on social listening and how your brand can go above and beyond to create highly effective customer experiences that elevate your brand and encourage customer loyalty.
