“I’m not the target of my own content.” With this phrase of María José Millán, specialist Inbound in the agency We are Marketing, last Friday started the trip by the latest trends in digital marketing that we had the opportunity to embark on board the ship The Inbounder Madrid 2017.
It seems obvious, but it is not so obvious. Many of the professionals who are dedicated to the generation of content run the risk of assuming that what we have dedicated so much effort will arouse the interest of our audience.
Actually, rarely act with the certainty that this is going to be so, and believe us, you do not have to be a reputed marketer to stop giving blind sticks and hit the key that will trigger visits to our blog.
Today we bring you one of the most efficient techniques to find that post that will touch the fiber of your buyer person , the Social Intelligence, which with great success was presented to us by communication expert Fátima Martínez at the second stop of the journey.
This concept, increasingly widespread in the business world, describes the activity of collecting, analyzing and filtering the data that our consumers offer us in the social environment. This allows us to identify outstanding behaviors, detect interests and create a content strategy aimed at solving the real concerns that our consumers have.
Every business that boasts has today with countless digital tools such as social networks, blogs, forums, etc., with the aim of interacting with the user and strengthening ties with him. Over time, these platforms have become large data compartments that store huge amounts of relevant information about your user. Seize it!
The marketing and communication departments of the most successful firms already use these clues offered by social platforms to gain competitive advantage and attack the sensitivity of their potential clients with guarantees. Why do not you do the same? Go beyond the “I like” and “shared” and thoroughly analyze the conversations and behaviors of your digital community.
You must move from monitoring to Social Intelligence, from the mere collection of data to the qualitative analysis of them. The professionals who dedicate themselves to analytics spend 80% of their time interpreting the data collected, but these data, without a critical study, are just that, data.
