Old is Gold and So is Historical Data: Introducing Historical Data Insights

History has been quite substantial in shaping every aspect of our present-day society. And past is something that you may love or you may hate but you cannot ignore!

And the same goes with social media monitoring, with valuable insights from your past you can better strategize and plan your brand’s future. Isn’t that amazing?

Real-time Data vs Historical Data

Real-time Data

In the present-day world scenario, anything that is real-time grabs our attention. And who better understands the importance of real-time monitoring other than analysts and marketers with brands who are always striving to improve their customer experience, crisis management and responsiveness with real-time social media monitoring which will also give them an edge over their competitors. Well, this gives us a clear picture of what significance real-time monitoring carries with it.

Historical Data

But, anything that is real-time should be dealt with in real-time too or else there is no meaning to its purpose. Isn’t it? Now, let's see the other side of the coin which says that anything that is not real-time is historical and without wholly understanding the historical context of a mention, social analysts will struggle to drive reliable meaning from their data. And to be honest we don't want that to happen.

Before introducing you to our data analysis feature let me explain you in brief about-

How Rank Me Online’s historical data analysis will benefit your brand?

  • With data history of mentions, you can get access to your previous marketing history- what worked for your brand and what not, drive insights from them, and develop an effective marketing strategy for your future campaigns.
  • Our AI-powered tool provides you detailed insights on trends by analyzing past mentions, giving you a fair idea on what initiated that trend, how the audience reacted to it and the development of such trends in the future and its acceptability, enabling you to make quick and effective decisions.
  • There is a famous saying-“the sins of the fathers shall be borne by the sons”. Likewise, do not let negative comments of the past hamper your present brand image. Our historical data analysis lets you access the important past comments that need to be dealt with, or that could be shaping the sketch of the crisis.
  • Reveal the sentiments of the mentions based on positive, negative and neutral.
  • Access data with the use of various filters and categories that enables you to sort data by mention source, mention type, location, language as well as demographics.
