Overall Satisfaction with NetBase
NetBase is a very useful tool that we use for a great range of our clients and to many different ends. We commonly use NetBase in business pitches, as it allows us to understand the demographic the brand may be targeting, as well as helps determine whether there is a market for our product. We've used it to assist in the creative ideation process, so as to arrive at a creative solution by means of actionable data. Aside from that, we also use NetBase to provide day to day analysis of our clients' social performance and to detect any issues in real-time. Features like cross-tab analysis, demographic breakdowns and sentiment analysis all allow for quick-turnaround analysis ideal for last-minute client asks.

NetBase is great for people trying to guage social conversation around a certain topic and comparing that performance to their competitors. On the other hand, NetBase is not appropriate for owned content performance as many times there are inconsistencies between the platform and the native social media platforms. However, it is a powerful tool to accompany any brand report.
