Listening to the Mood of Stakeholders

Align your business and media strategy to the prevailing sentiment within your business ecosystem. A media plan that does not consider the voices of current and potential stakeholders — investors, government, consumers, industry observers, and the general public - is incomplete. We offer media analytics services that provide you with detailed reports of the conversations taking place within your business ecosystem. You can track prevailing opinions and views by listening to various stakeholder audiences. We tune in to editorial news & views and social media conversations through our media tracking and analytics services to understand stakeholders' aspirations, concerns, apprehensions and expectations. Our experts track and analyse editorial articles in applicable newspapers, magazines, online news and conversation threads to narrow down on the prevailing stakeholder sentiment. Our social media listening activities cover conversations ranging across politics, socio-economics, finance, human resource, government and policy regulations, societal concerns, etc.

Benchmarking and Target Setting

Sharpen your planning process by setting quantitative and qualitative milestones in your communication plans after understanding your competition's thought process. While planning a targeted media campaign for a news announcement, corporate communication professionals often find themselves hamstrung by the lack of credible & historical reference data of similar communication exercises undertaken by their competitors earlier. Without accurate historical data, their media plans are often rendered deficient, leading to underwhelming results. Your communication plans become tighter when you factor in information available in the media universe about a targeted activity conducted by your competition or organizations in other industry verticalss. Our benchmarking exercises examine past media campaigns undertaken by other organizations to draw insights about competition milestones and strategies. Post the benchmarking exercise, our team narrows down on the ideal qualitative & quantitative targets desirable for a communication plan.

Insight/ Trend Reports

Gather valuable information, including different types of insights and trends, with our rich data-coding technique. Corporate communication and PR firm teams often strive to understand their competitor’s thought processes, a journalist’s reporting style, use of editorial formats, trends to leverage spokespersons for thought leadership, etc. Our data analytics techniques offer last-mile insights to corporate communication and PR firm teams. Trend reports are curated based on customised communication requirements for both pre & post-communication phases.
