One of the most valuable tools a digital marketer has is the ability to understand who is talking about his brand and where they are saying it.  That knowledge is essential to targeting your audience, crafting your content, and measuring the impact of your communications – and catching building PR crises!

There are many tools out there but I’ve had a look at some of the most popular, several China focused listening tools, and a very handy tool specially built for hospitality brands.

If you’re ready to identify your business issues, discover audiences you may be unaware of, and get going on a content marketing journey – get a buzz monitoring tool in place!
