Sysomos Heartbeat

Sysomos Heartbeat is well suited to situations where there is a well defined need for monitoring. Specific campaign, industry, program. We set out to solve a problem of a lack of general visibility of online conversation, and found that marketers liked knowing that the data was available but didn't know what to do with it. Need really specific use-cases in mind.

It is a pretty easy product to pick up and run with. Though the queries and tags you use to monitor can be tricky at times and require you to think your ultimate goal of what you want to achieve

This has not been an issue. It is actually beating TweetDeck when we are tagged within a post that TweetDeck is monitoring.

I didn't find my account manager too keen on helping me. I had to do majority of the research all on my own.

Alternatives Considered

Heartbeat is comparitavely user-friendly, which is helpful in a distributed environment where training is costly. It is very focused on listening, and though they have recently introduced and developed publishing features this not the product's core value proposition, and the model of priving by Heartbeat queries isn't a great match for that purpose. Other tools are better for managing multiple accounts and publishing, but Sysomos represents value and power for listening.

Return on Investment

  • I was able to track the public perception of a client and quantifiably show how client actions related to public sentiment.
  • It was the best/easiest way to record impressions based off of social media hits like blogs, tweets.
  • Helped to create reports that we were able to use to prove that our work with bloggers was not only happening, but benefiting our product.
