What is media monitoring?
Media monitoring is the practice of continually reading, watching and listening to the editorial content of media sources, including print, online and broadcast media, to track the coverage of your organisation, people, brand or competitors. Through media monitoring, you can learn how the various media perceive and portray your organisation (or other organisations) and gain a better understanding of how you’re performing in the market.
Using this information, you can
- monitor the sentiment of your coverage
- manage your brand’s reputation
- uncover valuable PR insights
- gather competitive intelligence
Many organisations use media monitoring tools to help them gather this data, which can include such metrics as:
- brand mentions
- where your advertisements are appearing
- when your editorial content runs in print or online
An essential component of your PR, marketing and business intelligence toolkit, media monitoring helps you measure the success of press releases, identify topics or issues relevant to your organisation, better understand your communications’ strengths and weaknesses, and pinpoint potential business opportunities.
