  • This is the best software to monitor what's being said about your company and product. I have been using Google Alerts for a long time and I should say that it misses a half of mentions you should be aware of. It monitors any mentions in real time, so you'll never miss anything.

    Pros : - Cool interfaces - Email notifications - Fear prices

    Cons : - Everything is just great

  • What we like about mention is that it is priced very well considering the functionality that is provided. Typically you pay the big bucks for apps such as Mention.
    At a minimum you should be monitoring your brand name online. Mention is a cost effective and comprehensive tool that you should consider.

  • What do you like best?

    Mention has made it very easy and simple to track conversations about our brand across the web. I am able to respond to these "mentions" in real time, be them negative or positive, and have received great feedback in both cases. Mention also allows you to flag a comment that is especially important or even send a task related to a mention to a teammate for them to respond to.

    What do you dislike?

    I have not run into any particular issues using the Mention dashboard, but do look forward to any new features that may develop. The task management aspect of it has been the last part for me to use. While the dashboard is very user-friendly, asking coworkers to become active on yet another dashboard can be daunting. However, because this has been the most thorough and integrated dashboard I have found for such a thing, I believe that I will proceed with asking coworkers to use this. I only wish that it could be integrated with a social media dashboard such as Hoot Suite for scheduling purposes. It would be so convenient to have them all in one place! Still, I have generally experienced no issues.

    Found this company about 9 months ago. Was looking for a more streamlined approach to monitoring our growing footprint of brands and what is being said about them in the media as well as on social networks.

    Pros :

    • Does a great job picking up posts on Twitter and Instagram fairly quickly. Sometimes I get alerts about Twitter posts containing my keywords, within minutes of the post being made.
    • The service is fairly reasonably priced, and I will say that, unlike a lot of vendors out there, they were extremely easy to deal with on the sales side.
    • I had a 10 minute call with their sales guy, told him exactly what I needed and what I was willing to pay, and he approved it essentially on the spot.
    • This was a custom plan, and I don't think it's fair to post the price I paid, but I will say that it was very reasonable, and they are very flexible on the ability to craft a solution that fits your needs.

    Cons :

    • The main CON for me is that the system has no way of monitoring Facebook... at least not in the way you would expect.
    • The only Facebook monitoring that they are capable of doing is monitoring your brand's Facebook Page.
    • Most companies are already actively monitoring their own page on a daily basis, so I don't see the benefit of having this functionality.
    • If you want to know about anyone, with a public profile, or that is posting elsewhere on Facebook that can be seen publicly, and they have mentioned your brand, or keywords that you are monitoring, this is really not possible via this service.
    • I have had to resort to actually going to Facebook weekly and typing in my keywords into the search bar to see what comes up, and because the results that Facebook gives you are not sorted by date, this is even a terrible way to gain insight into what is being said about your brand on Facebook.

    I really like Mention and the thoroughness of its monitoring. It's a helpful tool for managing your brand and knowing both the positive and negative conversations that are happening in real time. I would definitely recommend it if your business can afford it. They offer a free trial, so it’s worth some experimentation.

    Pros :

    • Many people who are tracking their brand are probably using Google Alerts, which aren’t always accurate and don’t provide you with any information other than Internet results with matching words.
    • What Mention does is take your monitoring a few steps further so that you can smartly keep track of your company and the social conversations that matter the most.
    • I really like that it provides real-time monitoring and an easy to use dashboard where you can view all your alerts. No longer will they get lost in your inbox or a forgotten folder.
    • You and your colleagues can log in and see statistics for your average mentions per day and filter by source.
    • The data behind Mention makes it a great resource for better understanding the sentiment of important conversations.
    • There’s also an app, which is super helpful when you need to track mentions on the go.

    Cons :

    • The different pricing packages are a bit expensive, so this service might be better suited for larger enterprises that have a lot of clients or businesses that can justify the cost. However, there is a “starter” package that is affordable but it severely limits what you can do with your monitoring.
    • The more you pay, the more mentions your account can handle and the more keywords you can create to track your brand, your competitors and even industry topics you want to keep an eye on.

    Nowadays, any company should be at least tracking their brand mentions, and mention is the perfect tool. There are other tools out there that can help you to do this (for example Google Alerts), but mention has a great User interface that allows you to monitor mentions from all sites, from social media platform and forums, to blog posts and news articles.

    Pros :

    There are different levels of access available with price plans from only $29 per month which allow you to track up to 3 alerts totalling 3k mentions by up to 3 users, to the enterprise plan which offers companies the ability to track up to 30 keywords for 500K mentions per month and 30 users, as well as other services such as support (an account manager) and data export features. There are 2 other plans in between, so there’s a plan for everyone. Setting up a new mention is very easy, and you can filter out your own social channels and websites to prevent being notified of your own mentions. It’s also very easy to respond to the mention (when necessary) straight from the online tool, as well as having the option to reply, retweet, quote, or favourite a tweet that you were mentioned in without ever having to leave mention. Another great use of mention is to track competitor mentions. This can help you to understand who is talking about your competitor, in which channels, and even help you to identify possible link opportunities. The notification system can be set up to desktop notifications, the settings of which can be tweaked, which shows a popup when you get a new mention. This is great, because it help you to be made aware of mentions quickly so that they can be dealt with. It’s also very important to react quickly to negative mentions, which makes this even more useful.

    Cons :

    I have had problems with the access levels on more than one occasion, where despite having my access set to admin, I was unable to make changes to the settings, such as marking various mentions as irrelevant. This may simply be down to bad user experience with the tool.
