Industry sector: IT / Data Management
Focus: When it comes to articles and comments about your company, your products or industry topics, Echobot is the most modern tool to uncover and organize relevant clippings. The German-made technology provides you with browser-based software or ready-to-use plugins to sift through thousands of posts from online news outlets and social media networks. Users of Echobot use it to craft media analyses, improve customer care, or explore opportunities that lead to increased sales.

In today‘s society nearly every person, company or product is rated or talked about on the internet. Similarly, more and more content is produced on the web due to magazines going digital and customers becoming an influential force in shaping public opinion.

The problem for PR-executives, business owners, and those responsible for marketing is obvious: given the increase in volume and pace of information creation and dissemination, it has become nearly impossible to keep track of all relevant mentions.  This data also contains a lot of hidden opportunities which are not yet tapped into by most businesses. Most users, for example, are not aware that a simple Google alert does not cover social media content.

Echobot offers the solution by combining its powerful news crawler with a state-of-the-art social media analysis engine. The customer may search for keywords, influencers, or topics and receive daily digests via E-Mail and export the returned results to get a nicely designed PDF-report with the click of a button.

In addition, Echobot can help companies to tailor their marketing messages to their targets’ specific needs and spot the right media contacts by looking at which coverage receives the most buzz and by whom it was written. Combining Echobot with an existing CRM system can boost a company’s social capacity and enable sales reps to enrich and qualify leads and to engage with prospects.
