    There are quite a few social media monitoring tools available on the market that could help you with that. 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. A majority of collected mentions has an influencer score assigned to them. It gives you an idea of how influential the author of a mention is based on his number of followers on a platform a given mention appeared, as well as his interactions with them.

      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.
