      Been using these alerts for years, much better than Google alerts. The new Twitter added alerts are useful, I get a daily summary of my most important mentions which is nice. Talkwalker alerts is great for a free service, highly recommend you use it for your brand or business.

    • I've been using this specifically to surface Ai content and have been pleasantly surprised by many stories I'd missed. I'll continue to explore and report back...

    I'd go with one of the social media monitoring tools available on the market. I tend to be biased when it comes to such questions, and I'd recommend having a look at Brand24. Here are a couple of tips for starters: -add your competitors’ names as monitored keywords -monitor their domains as some people tend to include the domains rather than social media handles in their posts -monitoring branded hashtags is worth considering, too. Sentiment filter can be a super helpful feature as it allows for filtering the mentions according to people’s attitude expressed in their posts. With that being said, you can easily get to those mentions from people dissatisfied with your competitors’ services or products. I see people looking for help or asking questions on social media that some brands do not bother to reply to, and you can find hundreds of such posts with a social media monitoring tool. If you're capable of helping those people, there’s nothing wrong in jumping in such conversations. Someone else’s negligence might actually turn out a win for you.

      A great tool that helps me understand where and how people discuss certain topics like "Alternative to [MyCompetitorName]", "How to [Solve the problem I sell a solution to]" so I can engage personally and try to convert.

      Brand24 is a great app, especially if you're a business prone to any type of social media critics (like every type of business, nowadays?). It's just a much better way to know what people are saying about your brand then searching it through Google.
