The Future of Image Analysis in Market Research and Social Media

By Derek Franks  •  December 18, 2018


Snap!

 

The iconic sound of a photograph being taken.

Today, most of us don’t literally snap a picture anymore. We click a photo.

And with each image taken by people comes an opportunity for brands and organizations like yours to learn something about these people.

With market research tools and social media analytics platforms growing in their intelligence and capabilities, we can now conduct research on the more than 3 billion images...

5 Ways to Build Better Connections with Customers in the Digital Age

By Derek Franks  •  June 15, 2017


Don Draper had a spectacular way of presenting amazing new creative ideas for brands’ big ad campaigns. The many “Mad Men” who inspired that character knew how to develop messages that truly resonated with people. At the height of the golden age of advertising, brand messaging literally drove consumer behavior.

Today, we can feel inspired by such remarkable creativity. But the internet has turned the advertising world on its head. We’ve done a...

Beer isn’t just for Boys: Using Social Data to Reach New Audiences

By Madi Harmon  •  August 11, 2016


Drinking beer is a boy’s club, or at least it was.

For years beer advertisements have targeted the most consistent and loyal consumers, men, and often have ignored or portrayed women as objects of desire.

Check out how far Bud Light missed the mark with women in its 2014 #UpForWhatever campaign by implying that beer should be used to “remove no from your vocabulary for the night.”

Despite a turbulent history with the female demographic, these...

Spotting Fast Fashion Support Mistakes with Social Data

By Jordan Hanson  •  July 6, 2016


Every customer support representative knows that having a variety of response plans in place is one thing, but executing them for extreme customer satisfaction is another, especially in the constantly-shifting world of fast fashion retail.

As we've discussed in a prior post, there are a lot of red flags for the fast fashion industry in general, but they seem to be more like conversational constants than changing variables.

We wonder: do...

Why Marketers Struggle to Connect With Eco Friendly Audiences

By Tiffany Tran  •  June 24, 2016


Marketing to environmentally conscious consumers  isn't necessarily something new. Brands have been capitalizing on this for some time now, and much of those efforts have been abused because of the ambiguous rules of what sustainable marketing is.

The FTC has since (2012) revised its "Green Guides" in hopes of better-protecting consumers from being deceived by deceptive advertising and marketing.

However, the question is -- even with revised...

Guide: How to use social data for buyer journey research

By Jordan Hanson  •  June 15, 2016


In our previous post about the buyer's journey, we outlined six ways social media research data can help agencies and market researchers understand the buyer's journey.

Let's recap -- social data is an excellent fit for understanding:

  1. How customers feel about their buying experiences
  2. Experiences related to using or consuming products (satisfaction drivers)
  3. Post-purchase interactions with the retailer or manufacturer

How Agencies Can Speak for Brands Using Social Data

By Jordan Hanson  •  May 24, 2016


Good news: your agency receives an RFP to improve a brand's public perception. You have great ideas and a pitch meeting coming up.

Bad news: the clock is ticking and you're on a deadline.

Normally, preliminary research efforts are going to involve surveys, public polling, focus groups, you name it. These steps take time, resources, and consistent diligence to make sure your results are accurate. Doesn't that sound more complicated than it needs...

Which cheese does America prefer? #TrumpVSTaco

By Jordan Hanson  •  March 16, 2016


Writing about Donald Trump is a complicated process. Recent coverage concerning him ranges from his business practices and understanding of political ethics to the beauty pageant he owned until last year. One thing is certain: Trump has garnered a substantial amount of public support throughout the 2016 presidential election campaign.

Donald Trump is also a cheesy, stereotypical fast-talking businessman. He's loud, he makes bold statements that...

By Rion Martin  •  February 18, 2016


Ad agencies. Cradles of creativity, epicenters of innovation, and the birthplaces of social media listening. 

That's right! Little known fact: some of the earliest social listening tools got their start at ad agencies. Take VML's SEER, for example. 

But what started out as a tool to simply monitor when and where people were talking about their clients on the internet has evolved into something with many more use cases.

By Jordan Hanson  •  February 17, 2016


Valentine's Day was last weekend. You're thinking, "So what? It's all just a commercialized holiday opportunity to sell jewelry, chocolate, flowers, and ad time, all bundled up with the idea that sex (or love) sells."

Since most of our readers are agency clients, I'd like to address this next comment to you: You'd be right, but you'd also be surprised at the subtle trends showing up in our social intelligence data.
