Ten things brands can achieve through social media listening

It takes five steps for social media listening to deliver the business objectives for an organization.
In the first step, we define the target queries and listen to online conversations about the brand, in the next step we derive consumer insights and evaluate them to check their validity. Once we validate, we craft the social media strategy in line with traditional marketing and mix the two.
Once we have the mix ready, we integrate social conversations into the CRM system to drive impactful conversations which enables cross functional teams to fully engage with the customers and drive business objectives.
The above process if done carefully can yield amazing results for the brand;
