23 Mike Moran © 2008 Mike Moran © 2010 Mike Moran 23 How do todays companies listen to customers? Google Alerts are free and easy Set up a search and follow the s or an RSS feed Perfect for small businesses and unique search keywords

24 Mike Moran © 2008 Mike Moran © 2010 Mike Moran But other companies fail with search algorithms T-Mobile will be found quite easily Sprint not so much Verizon Wireless is also not easy to isolate 24

25 Mike Moran © 2008 Mike Moran © 2010 Mike Moran Algorithmic listening also misses details [Negative for Treximet Cardio Side Effects] I did a little research of my own, and was a bit alarmed to come upon a forum of migraine sufferers who had tried the drug and reported tightness in the chest and other indications of cardiac disturbance. I decided to leave the Treximet in the desk, untouched.

Do you care if the whole post is positive or negative? Or what the specifics are for each issue? 25

26 Mike Moran © 2008 Mike Moran © 2010 Mike Moran But Google Alerts treats all mentions the same 26 Doesnt aggregate volumes or show competitors Doesnt differentiate by venue Doesnt separate positive from neutral and negative

27 Mike Moran © 2008 Mike Moran © 2010 Mike Moran Who are the current leaders in social listening? Forrester Wave

28 Mike Moran © 2008 Mike Moran © 2010 Mike Moran Sentiment analysis shows opinions Top Five Tech Pundits in Smart Phone Conversation Blog URL Net Sentiment (toward Brand) RankTraffic EngadgetA Venue falls in the top 1% of highest trafficked, most influential sites Gizmodo A Venue falls in the top 1% of highest trafficked, most influential sites Electronista B Venue falls in the top 10% of high trafficked sites UberGizmo B Venue falls in the top 10% of high trafficked sites Switched C Venue falls in the bottom 90% of trafficked sites 28

29 Mike Moran © 2008 Mike Moran © 2010 Mike Moran Algorithmic sentiment analysis misses sarcasm Oh, the iPhone is a beautiful girl, no doubt. The automated sentiment analysis failed to identify the sarcasm and coded the entry as positive for iPhone, while failing to understand the author was actually saying there was no value for the iPhone beneath its flashy exterior 29

30 Mike Moran © 2008 Mike Moran © 2010 Mike Moran Algorithmic sentiment analysis misses nuance You know that these are negative, but there is no word to tell the algorithm These would be marked neutral by most algorithms 30 I waited on line for my entire lunch hour at my Wells Fargo branch today. State Farm never told me I had no flood coverage. Amazon wouldnt refund my money.

31 Mike Moran © 2008 Mike Moran © 2010 Mike Moran Algorithmic sentiment misses context The same words mean different things An unpredictable movie is good, but unpredictable food quality, not so much We like small cell phones but not small hotel rooms Faded jeans are good, but not faded photos Frozen computers are bad, but frozen margaritas are good 31

32 Mike Moran © 2008 Mike Moran © 2010 Mike Moran 70% accuracy on relevance 70% accuracy on sentiment 70% times 70% = 49% The problem: Algorithms alone fall short 32 Oh, the iPhone is a beautiful girl, no doubt. The best algorithms seem to fail half the time

33 Mike Moran © 2008 Mike Moran © 2010 Mike Moran If you need the data to be right, you need people to check the machines The machines collect the data and make the easy calls, and they suggest the answers for the tough ones, but humans make the final decision Human analysts can correct the algorithms 33

34 Mike Moran © 2008 Mike Moran © 2010 Mike Moran Visualizations make the data understandable 34

35 Mike Moran © 2008 Mike Moran © 2010 Mike Moran The same information is needed organization-wide 35

36 Mike Moran © 2008 Mike Moran © 2010 Mike Moran Workflow distributes insights 36

37 Mike Moran © 2008 Mike Moran © 2010 Mike Moran Workflow also allows engagement 37

38 Mike Moran © 2008 Mike Moran © 2010 Mike Moran Listening tools are growing up Volume Word counts/tag cloud Entry timeline High-level topics Venue analysis Influence Drill-down to entries 1.0 Monitoring 2.0 Mining Sentiment Topics and subtopics Voices/participants Key influentials Incident-level reporting Custom reporting elements Human analysis 38
