Extra mention sources

Extra Mention Sources are premium data sources we use to provide even more mention insights. They can be requested for every project you want. They can be activated on your account based on prior analysis and quote that are provided by us.

Once you switch ON, you’ll have to provide us your name, email address, phone number, company name, number of employees and other information you’d like to share.

After that, you’ll be contacted by one of our team members to give you the most comprehensive list of mentions for your project.

BrandMentions allows PR, brand managers, marketing specialists and business owners, in general, to keep track of the brand on the web. Also, it’s a good chance to discover powerful influencers and find potential collaborations through all the information you find in our list of sources.

3. Request Historical Data

More insights and more mentions with the new features, that allows you to request historical data. Traveling back in time is now more accessible and gets you everything you want to know about your brand, your company, and even your competitors.

Until now, when you created a new project you could see the data only for the last 30 days. With the new feature, you can see data for up to 1 year in the past.

Click on Request Historical Data and send your contact information, plus the period of your mentions, not more than one year.
