3. Monitor customers’ pain points
Another approach to generating leads with social listening is to monitor industry terms or phrases that represent a pain point or problem you’re looking to solve.
By monitoring the problem their potential customers are looking to solve (recruiting tech professionals), Breaz increased their lead response rate by 5x.
They created a list of keywords they thought people would use to talk/complain/ask about email clients on Twitter (i.e. tweets containing: “recommend + email + client”).
After these keywords generated relevant tweets, they began reaching out. The result was an average of 15 new qualified beta subscribers per week.
Other valuable “side effects” of this approach for Front included:
- Identifying influencers in their industry
- Detecting blogs and websites talking about their industry
- Discovering which articles resonated with their targeted users
And all of these “side effects” were achieved in only 45 minutes per day.
