Ep 99 – Inside Social Media Audience Listening for Sponsorships – Ben Foster – Talkwalker

Based on total website traffic, social media behemoths, YouTube and Facebook are the second and third most visited sites, respectively, behind only Google, with Twitter in 4th and Instagram 5th. To be clear,4 of the top 5 most visited websites are social media websites.

All of those people, all over the world, spending all that time on social media, every day, sharing, questioning, arguing, promoting, and engaging, it is a truly magnetic place to be.

Understanding audiences has always been a key plank in sponsorship. That’s why, social listening can be a very powerful tool to be able to help sell, find, align, activate, and report on sponsorships, regardless of whether you are a rights holder, brand, or agency.

As such, joining us on the show to discuss how social listening can be used in sponsorship is Benjamin Foster, Talkwalker Oceania Enterprise Partner. Talkwalker is an AI-powered analysis tool that provides real-time insights into what’s happening on all social channels and online media, across 187 languages.
