As LivePerson’s social media manager, I do a lot of social listening on behalf of the company. What am I listening for? People talking about our brand or the industry at large; consumers sharing their experiences using live chat; innovations and thought leadership in customer engagement, just to name a few of the areas I tend to tap in to. Social listening is a great way to keep your finger on the pulse of how people view your brand and what’s coming up on the horizon that could impact your business.
