Listen. Really Listen. And then Respond.

Customer journeys are emotional journeys. Good or bad, people are going to comment, question and review. If people are taking time from their day to interact with your brand, you have to be ready to respond quickly and in a meaningful way. That’s the easy part. In addition to monitoring and replying to questions, comments and concerns, social listening is built around finding key insights from conversations about your brand that can be used to build your overall strategy further.

So much more than dealing with one-off issues, social listening is about spotting the bigger trends. It’s the key to an effective social engagement strategy. By tracking who’s saying what about your brand through keyword monitoring, CMDS will give you the tools you need to leverage these insights to uncover new opportunities.

By unlocking your audience’s needs and desires, you can address their biggest fears, their urgent needs, their burning desires… all the reasons they might be looking for you. Then, we’ll craft strategic messages around it. We look at the demographics and psychographics of your audience and also use influencer marketing to identify and forge key brand ambassador relationships.

What You Get: 360-degree knowledge of who your audience is – and isn’t – and a clear way to talk to them


Social strategy begins with humanity first. To reach customers in the most cost-effective way, it’s necessary to understand what their needs, emotions and aspirations are – things they may or may not be able to express. Through extensive industry research and innovative psychology principles, we strategize what platforms will work best for your brand, how to mix organic initiatives and paid campaigns and then design the experiences that elicit desired behaviors.

What You Get: Understanding about the type of content your customers respond to AND the most strategic way to deliver it

Social Engagement Strategy Common Questions and Answers

Social media keeps shaking up the way brands connect with customers. But it doesn’t have to be a complicated task. Skim through the common questions below and then give us a call us at (732) 706-5555 to talk through any other questions.

Social engagement strategy is the broad term that encompasses everything about how a brand interacts with its audience. This can include:

  • Developing a persona
  • Deciding on how to respond to both fans and trolls
  • Digesting conversations and relaying that information into further uses such as content and additional social media topics, new products or services, or heading off potential problems
  • Determining the who, what, where, why and when of your social audience and how to best utilize this data for your marketing purposes

Yes. Everybody loves to feel heard. Once your audience realizes that you’re listening, you’ll immediately start to strengthen relationships, loyalty and trust. Wait too long to respond and your prospects and customers will turn to someone who is listening and responding (your competitors). Since social media gives you a front row seat to chatter about your brand, listening and responding has never been easier. If you don’t have the resources in-house to be reliably responsive, using an external social media consultant is essential.

Credibility will be zeroed out without constant listening and responding. Direct correspondence is only half the battle. We constantly search Google Alerts, social mentions and hashtags, not just for your brand name, but also your competitor’s, industry terms and keywords that your customers would use.

Since hashtags are basically a social version of a keyword, they’re extremely useful to help brands get found, especially since social platforms are starting to look and act more and more like search engines. While they can be fun to use, they do require a strategy. Hashtags only get the job done if someone is looking for them. We analyze the most relevant hashtags for your brand based on consumer interactions.

Additionally, whether it is Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, all social platforms have their own requirements. We let you know the top trends to see what all the buzz is about to listen, interact and respond – so you are talking about the right content in the right place to the right people.

Social media is one of the few places where you can actually express your brand voice, communicate with customers and showcase your personality. It’s easier to measure exact ROI on social media advertising and PPC campaigns, while organic engagement tend to be more difficult to prove right away. Think of it more like a branding initiative, much like your business card, social media engagement is critical for businesses in all industries.


We’re not just a social media agency, we help brands develop a more holistic strategy to drive business growth. While social strategies are a very important part of that mix, we take what we learn from other marketing tactics and infuse that into social. Likewise, we take what we learn from social and use that for other initiatives to make the most impact. We make sure you leave the table not just with the results you are looking for, but a better knowledge of your brand and your customers - and how to strategically engage with them in the future. We’re a total package. Call us at (732) 706-5555 to get started.
