A Round-up of our Latest Resources, Events and Recommended Reads

As we step into Q2, we’re hoping the first few months of 2024 have laid a strong foundation for the year ahead for you! Here’s a quick update on the latest events and stories in the world of digital insights and social listening.

Coming up this month is The Social Intelligence Lab’s Trends Summit. The virtual event offers a chance to (re-)connect with peers and learn from the experts, including our very own Jackie Cuyvers. Her educational session aims to unravel the complex realm of insights tools, illuminating the array of tools for social listening, and showing how to select the most suitable ones for various tasks and integrate them into daily workflows.

On the topic of partnerships, industry discussions have been abuzz with talk about the merger between our official data partner, Talkwalker, and Hootsuite. This synergy marries Hootsuite’s analytical prowess with Talkwalker’s consumer insights expertise, heralding a new chapter in social media management. It’s a development that will add value to our processes and, by extension, to the services we offer to you.

And, when it comes to our insights services, we’re excited to announce our new video social listening capability. With access to an abundance of public video content across social media channels, we can now offer deep insights from this data. From dissecting trending video topics, analysing audience behaviours and identifying influential creators to evaluating brand performance on TikTok, our in-depth analysis equips brands with the intelligence to fine-tune engagement strategies and content creation. Want to learn more? Get in touch with our team – we’re just an email away. If you prefer, book a consultation with us here.
