Social media monitoring – how it can inform and advise future construction projects

Social media monitoring is an extremely useful tool for businesses and organizations to keep track of how their brands are doing online. Social media monitoring helps you understand what people are saying about your brand on different social media platforms, as well as where your name appears on the web in general. It can help you see how effectively your marketing messages or products are being received by customers and potential customers, whether they’re positive or negative. And it gives you insights into ways to improve them based on the feedback you receive.

For example – if you’re planning a housing development in a rural area, feelings can run high and opposition can be vocal, mobilising quickly across social media platforms to gather momentum. As with best practice in any PR situation such as this – early adoption of a strategy designed to be proactive in altering public perceptions for positive gain is advantageous.

Platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram have a vast reach and can be valuable sources for gathering data. However, it is important to consider the specific demographics and characteristics of each platform to gather accurate information and insights.

There are several tools that make social media monitoring easier and more effective, such as Hootsuite, Mention, Talkwalker, and Brandwatch. These tools help you monitor multiple social media channels from one easy-to-use dashboard and provide data and analytics to help you analyze your results. Whether you need to track mentions of your brand, monitor conversations around certain keywords, or follow specific users or influencers, there is a social media monitoring tool that can meet your needs.

So, if you’re looking for ways to stay on top of what people are saying about your future projects online, consider using social media monitoring tools to gain valuable insights into how well your marketing messages and products are being received by customers and potential customers. With the right data at your fingertips, you can make smarter decisions about how to improve and grow your business in today’s digital world. A proactive approach supported by insights can assist in formulating a robust strategy to minimise and defuse potentially distracting public opposition to a project.
