Are you monitoring your social media, or is it damaging your brand?


Social media. Love it or hate it, it is here to stay. Now, more than ever, it is vital that you are monitoring what is being said about your business. A couple of rude or inaccurate comments can sway the public’s opinion of your business in a very negative way, even if they aren’t true.

Foxie understands how important protecting your brand is. We have compiled 5 major things that you should be doing to make sure that nobody is sabotaging your brand with a few inaccurate comments.

  1. Engage and Respond - Actively engage with your audience by responding to comments, inquiries, and feedback. Be proactive in addressing customer concerns, resolving issues, and providing timely and helpful responses. This demonstrates your commitment to customer satisfaction and helps maintain a positive brand image.
  1. Monitor Brand Mentions - Keep track of mentions of your brand across various social media platforms. Set up alerts and notifications to receive real-time updates when your brand is mentioned. Regularly review and analyze these mentions to understand the sentiment, context, and potential impact on your brand. 
  1. Set Up Relevant Keywords and Hashtags - Identify keywords, phrases, and hashtags that are relevant to your brand, products, services, and industry. These can include your brand name, product names, variations, and common misspellings. By monitoring these keywords, you can track conversations that involve your brand and respond accordingly.
  2. Monitor Your Competition - Monitor the social media activities of your competitors to stay informed about their strategies, campaigns, and customer interactions. Analyze their content, engagement tactics, and customer feedback to identify areas where you can differentiate yourself and enhance your brand's competitive position.
  3. Analyze Your Data - Regularly review and analyze the data collected from your social media monitoring efforts. Look for patterns, trends, and actionable insights that can guide your brand strategy, customer engagement, and decision-making. Pay attention to sentiment analysis, audience demographics, engagement metrics, and emerging topics of discussion. 

By actively monitoring social media for your business, you can protect your brand's reputation, address customer needs, identify opportunities, and effectively manage your online presence. Remember, engagement and timely responses are key to maintaining a positive brand image and building strong relationships with your audience.
