With all of the buzz happening online through major social media networks many people are attempting to monitor the landscape of chatter from thousands of people through a litany of free social media monitoring tools.
Although from an upfront perspective this might be less expensive there is are a huge set of costs associated:
- Employee time factor. Someone has to run through each of these free tools and consolidate information.
- Manual consolidation of the information will cause inaccuracies due to Human Error.
- Key Performance Indicators (KPI) will change drastically as no definable system is being used to streamline this data.
- What Sentiment is coming from the Social Media Networks? Are you just getting a listing of all the chatter from disjoint social media sources? Again you may have data, but a hodge podge of data doesn't help?
- If a negative sentiment arises do you have a means of contacting the individual? How are you going to store/manage/recontact that individual in the future.
- More clearly how are you going to turn that person on a social network into a customer or a brand advocate?
These points all create a disorganized, disjoint and inaccurate way to track the Buzz on Social Media Networks.
