How to Leverage Social Media Alerts and Trends

TORONTO, Dec. 6, 2016 /CNW/ - Monitoring for more than just brand mentions is imperative in today's media landscape. As more and more content is published every hour, marketers need to stay abreast of not only what is being said about their brand, but also of their competitors, their industry, and the world. Marketers today must learn how to filter through all of this information and understand when to join a trending conversation on social media and when to stay silent on a matter.

Setting up alerts sends web search updates directly to your email inbox. Our whitepaper shows you how to set up meaningful alerts, with examples of tools to use and keywords to track.

Trends differ from alerts as they refer to unexpected opportunities rather than topics and subjects that you are monitoring. While useful trends may not happen every day, it's important that marketers are able to spot the opportunities and act upon them quickly. To discover some of the best sites and tools to keep on top of trending conversations, download our whitepaper, How to Leverage Social Media Alerts and Trends.

This summer saw brands join the #PokemonGo conversation that captured the world overnight. Other brands chose to take a #SummerGames approach. Whatever the topic, these social media trends can offer inspiration for your next tweet, Facebook post or Instagram image and are worth paying attention to. To discover more about how you can leverage social media alerts and trending conversations, download our whitepaper here.
