1. Get All Your Mentions KPIs within the New BrandMentions Dashboard

You can make better business decisions and improve your presence online following the data you get on your dashboard.

The brand new Dashboard was designed having in mind a friendly UX, relevancy, and easy setup. Also, we wanted our users to find all their mention information gathered in one place so they can have a clear idea of how their business is going on from a mention point of view.

We've added even more mentions data that you can find it just by scrolling on a single page - the Dashboard.

2. Find the Key Influencers that Mentioned You Most

An influencer could be a anyone: a Blogger, Social media personality, Celebrity, Industry expert, Thought leader, Lifestyle brand. But what's important about influencers is that their followers are loyal and frequently shape their opinions and interests.

Therefore, knowing yours or your competitors' influencers is highly important. Knowing how to find influencers who can help you get in front of your target audience is an excellent way to reach new people, drive traffic to your website, build brand awareness, and increase sales.

That's why we added the  Top Influencers section, so you get to know the most popular people (influencers) that mentioned you on social media.

Based on the information you get within the Top Influencers section, you'll be able to get more brand awareness or conduct influencer marketing strategies. This section can be used for both competitor spying or to find out new influencers you could collaborate with.

Moreover, you can see the traction and engagement for each influencer. It is easy to sort and find out the one that mentioned you most or has the highest reach or impressions.

The handle is available for each influencer,  so you can find their social profile and contact them for further digital marketing campaigns and strategies. Also, you can choose to get data from influencers from specific social channels: Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Reddit.

3. Check out the Top Sites where You Appear More Often

Similar to the Top Influencers section, we've also added the possibility for you to see the list of Top Sites that mention you most. Get to know your "fan sites" one click away. You'll get to see how many mentions you have on each site, what is the sentiment of those mentions, their performance and impressions.

There might be sites that mentioned you and you even didn't know about. Or there might be sites mentioning your competitors and you might get inspired by their strategy. Whatever the case might be, knowing the top sites that mention you most is highly important and that's why we decided to add it within the BrandMentions tool.

4. Create Reports for Specific Segments Only

Reporting is an indispensable part of any business. Hence, the skill of report-writing is as important as the good raw material or the strategic decisions taken in order to run a business efficiently. That's why we decided to improve the reporting section from the BrandMentions app.

You know have the possibility to create projects not only on all of your mentions, but on segments of your mentions as well.

So, for instance, if you want to create a report on negative mentions only, you can do that. If you want to create another one on mentions with high performance only or on mentions written in French with a positive sentiment, you can do that as well.  For example, you want to get reports only with the unlinked mentions. Which can come in handy when you're planning a link-building campaign.

You can create unlimited segments for your mentions and for each of that segment you can generate a report. Pretty neat, right?

Create Reports by Segments

There is a common saying that “no job is finished until the paperwork is done”. And this quote is just as true for any profession - from a small eCommerce business to the Government - because generally talking, the only way a client can judge how well you’re doing the job is by reading the reports frequently. At some point, any person working in the field is as good as his reports.

5. Monitor Mentions in +140 Languages and Countries

Although our users come from all different places of the world, they all have something in common: they all want to accurately monitor their brands. Here, at BrandMentions, our users'need is our command so we've added within the tool the possibility of performing brand monitoring on almost all the countries in the world.
