Simple demo:  Monitoring "social media monitoring tools space"

Web2express is providing custom monitoring services to organizations and so it uses Realmon9 to monitor topics related to social media monitoring as well as engage in Twitter conversation.

The following lists of topics are created on Realmon9. They are obvious starting points and I'll add more specific topics as I find them through the monitoring process. For each topic, a probe is defined, which contains a set of search queries for searching twitter conversations, blogs and news. The probe needs to be optimized in order to identify high quality conversations, blog, and news.

I check the monitoring results by topic every day. If I see a question or conversation from twitter that I may be able to help, I mark the sender as "lead" and try to respond shortly. If a blog is interesting, I'll read the blog and provide comment if necessary. I also mark the blogger as a "lead" so that I can keep track of participants of interesting conversations/blogs altogether. To see the most popular participants (or talkers) talking about any of the topics, I check the "Talkers" page.

After I scan through the conversations and blogs, I take a look the Leads page, which lists all the participants whom I may want to respond to. Click on each "Lead" to see his/her conversations and post responses to twitter.

I also tag the conversations with any of the user-defined categories, such as Marketing or Customer Support.

The categorized conversations and the leads are automatically sent to my Salesforce CRM for further distribution and collaboration.
