How To Monitor Your Brand Online For Free

Monitoring what people say about your business online is very important. Everyone and anyone can talk about your business on their blogs, twitter or facebook. However, the very nature of the internet means that what people say about you online can reach millions of people in a few weeks, a few days, or even a few minutes! What if a disgruntled customer talks ill of you and suddenly millions of people hate your business? You need to monitor what people say about you so that you can understand how people view your business and respond to what people say. This is called online reputation management (ORM).

A common challenge for businesses seeking to do ORM is that the internet is too large and it would not be feasible to effectively monitor everything at an unacceptable cost. Well, that used to be true. Today, though, you can monitor your brand very effectively, for free. Watch the video below to learn more.

The strategy is based around using online tools to generate real-time feeds which you can monitor from one central location, Google reader. (You can use any other feed reader).
