3 Social Listening Examples
for Brands Working With Video Creators

3 social listening examples aggero

The following social listening examples can serve as a general guideline for brands looking to get real video insights when working with influencers, both on creators and on their audiences. Creator-led content collaborations are on the rise, with brands considering influencer collaborations at all buying stages and even for awareness alone within brand reputation strategies.

An example of social listening is only relevant when tied to your industry. Our reports go over relevant examples in the beauty and gaming industry. The amount of data to be analyzed in these industries is vast. Oftentimes, beauty brands and game developers don’t know how to choose the right influencer to partner as they don’t have true engagement data. 

Even more, building up their creator networks may be limited by not truly grasping social listening benefits such as determining video engagement rate or understanding the audience reaction to creator input in real-time, as campaigns unfold.

Examples of Social Listening Reports for Creator-led Content

Social listening with a focus on video content engagement analytics opens new doors to creator and audience understanding. You need to learn what to focus on when it comes to running your own campaigns that boost your brand’s ROI and video content performance. Here are 3 examples to get inspired from.

1. Creator Insights

Social listening uncovers ideal creators based on true engagement data. Discovering the right video creators is different for all brands. Your brand can benefit from discovering creators that already engage audiences on your brand, product, or industry. Furthermore, you can also discover the creators with the most engaging video content as ideal partners for your influencer campaigns.

Benchmarking is common practice in social listening video-driven content analytics. This is an example of your creator insights can look when you compare either a brand or a product against a close competitor.

Example insights: Aggero answers the following creator-related questions. How many creators talked about your product (organic vs paid). How many videos did they create? How many unique creators talked about your brand? How are these creators split into regions? Where to find micro influencers? Are there any micro influencer platforms or programs for my brand?
