Listening Use Cases

  • 1 - Discover an underserved market niche
  • 2 - Find buyers looking for your products
  • 3 - Find opinion leaders in any market
  • 4 - Understand your competitors
  • 5 - Understand their customers
  • 6 - Understand their partners

Discover the opportunity. Where is the blue ocean, that arises from threats like the coronavirus? We are monitoring search traffic volume (-Google Trends) and user intent (AnswerthePublic). Statista and Premium Research gives us the latest facts.

With everybody sharing their latest thoughts and buys on social media - we can find them on Instagram or Twitter.

We easily find them on Twitter, Facebook - Linkedin Industry Groups, read their their articles on Quora, Forrester, Gartner and meet them in person on Xing or again LinkedIn.

Same process - same outlets - plus their investor reports and some interviews. Did C-Level leave the company or did a shareholder sell? How good is their development team?

Same process - same outlets - maybe interviews with clients they have recently lost. Maybe they just have the same shareholders or went to the same university.

Same process - same outlets - maybe interviews with partners they have recently lost. Are they competition in other businesses? => Checklist: Conflict of Interest
