Mention

Mention is great because you can put in certain words or phrases for it to look for, and not just actual tags of your brand name. For example, since my brand is HeidiSongs.com, but is often misspelled as Heidi's Songs (and other variations of the name), I can put in as many words and phrases as I like to pull in as many mentions as possible. On the other hand, I don't need to know if someone pins something from my website to Pinterest, so I filter that out

Pros

  • Mention allows you to filter out certain websites that you do not need mentions from, such as Pinterest. For example, I do not need an alert each time someone repins one of my photos. Once I filtered that website out, I was able to easily stay within the 100 mentions per month that are allowed on the free plan.
  • Mention gives you a link to the actual social media post where you can find your brands "shout out." This is great, because it is quick and easy to go to the post and thank the poster for their mention. You do not have to visit the Mention website to do this unless you want to.
  • Mention allows you to mark certain website's mentions of you as irrelevant. I appreciate this, because there are always certain "spammy" types of mentions that come up here and there, and I don't want to waste any of my 100 free monthly mentions on that!

Cons

  • I'm not a huge fan of the layout of Mention. I'm a sucker for a clean and minimalistic presentation, and I feel like there is too much going on with the Mention dashboard.
  • I feel like there isn't a lot of bells and whistles to the program. I think that they could probably stand to spruce it up a bit.

Alternatives Considered

Buffer and Tailwind are different types of products with different services. I use Mention because it provides a service that they do not provide

Return on Investment

  • We are more aware than ever of the mentions of our business name online. Before, we were in the dark. I would only find out that someone mentioned our brand if I had actively searched for our brand.
  • Because I am aware of when we are being mentioned, I am able to combat any negativity right away. When I am alerted to negative commentary, I have the ability to connect with that consumer and make them happy before the negativity impacts our brand.
  • The time Mention saves me in researching our online mentions is priceless. Deep research is time-consuming and now I don't have to do that on my own.
