Social Competitive Intelligence and Brand Analytics

On social media and elsewhere, brand marketers are in a pitched battle for share-of-voice and to ride a rise in demand. Unfortunately, most are in the dark about shifting consumer behaviors, emerging industry trends, creative assets that truly resonate, and the strategy and tactics of their competitors — a dearth of information and insight. But here, you will find some intelligent answers. Data gleaned from social media campaigns, including dark ads, shed light on what’s happening today and what’s trending tomorrow, while AI extracts actionable insights that brand marketers can take to produce immediate results.
