Watchdogs gather information about wrongdoings and deliver it to the public so the public can understand what happens. C84 monitors watchdog journalism to understand market signals.

We analyze what people ask search engines. And we can tell you what brands and individuals tell their social followers. You will understand your competitors' initiatives, client base, and hopes, and fears of their client base.

Social Listening relies on publicly accessible data and connects to forums and social networks. Brand names, stock market prices, and shareholders are public information as the product names, price lists, and ratings in the shops.

We include available inhouse research to speed up the process and align with your existing database structure. 

Senior stakeholder interviews are conducted by an Executive Consultant.

We take care of the data collection and support our clients in schedule zoom calls seven days a week.

Airtable allow us to jumpstart, even when not all stakeholders are using the same cloud system.

Standard Delivery Time is defined in working days (usually Monday - Friday). 5 Days mean that meetings can be scheduled on 5 individual days. Overall project delivery is capped to 14 days. 

Serious Competitive Monitoring projects easily become a seven-figure project⚡️. Unless you don´t want to create just another data silo, the license fees stack up with multiple seats and stakeholders who need to be involved. This is not a problem at all if you are optimizing ad spend for global brands. But it´s not the price range that for mid-size projects. Often, these projects start with enthusiasm, then scaling causes cost issues, and finally not all stakeholders get access.
