Gold Quill Award-winning case study: 90-day planning: Sentiment and metrics
Marketers are increasingly using sentiment analysis to gauge their audience’s feelings, attitudes, emotions and opinions.
This means looking beyond the numbers to understand why people are responding in a certain manner. Are they angry? Happy? Stressed? Optimistic? Confused? Neutral? Other? These insights help marketers determine if they are achieving the desired impact or if they need to adapt their strategy to be more effective.
At Cisco, the Gold Quill Award-winning employee communication team uses Natural Language Processing technology to understand audience sentiment and metrics. The team leverages this insight to guide their 90-day planning process and strategic communications. In this session, you’ll learn how to use sentiment analysis to transform communication and to deeply engage employees.
