What is Social Media Research?
With the explosion of Social Media, businesses of all sizes often struggle to understand what is being said about their brands, and more importantly, how to promote and protect their brands online.
As with any marketing plan, social media marketing starts with "social media listening" or research to determine who your audience is, how they talk about your product or service, what their pain points are, how they interact with your competitors and to identify brand influencers.
The Social Media Research Association was created in 2017 to build a community of marketing professionals at every level, market researchers who want to be recognized in this area of expertise, students who are working on a degree in social media, pr/communication firms and more.
Come join us & be recognized as a leader of best practices, social media analytics, social media trends and changes in platforms and channels. We help you stay in the know of what is happening in this ever changing world of social media.
Back to School 2019: Social Listening Study
Home School VS Public School
Ann Michaels & Associates, one of our sponsor companies, conducted a Social Media Listening Study on the subject of Home School VS Public School. As you can image emotions run high on this very controversial subject.
By monitoring the web for a three month period of time, leading up to the new school year, Ann Michaels scrapped over 10K data points revealing sentiment, demographics, share of media, and much more.
A glimpse of the report reveal the reasons people name for why they choose to homeschool:
1. Educational Reasons
2. Political Reasons (saw responses from both sides)
3. Medical/Special Needs Reasons
4. Fear of violence/bullying
5. Multiple reasons (these were usually mentioned in response to some news item/other media with a post saying something like, "Reason #[number] we homeschool!")
