How successful was your most recent ad campaign? What is the most prevalent pain point for your customers?

YouScan can help you answer these and other reputation management questions.

In this article, we'll go over the monitoring tools that can help you process mentions and get the necessary metrics efficiently and effectively.

💡 For example. Let's say you launched a new product and wish to find out what your customers loved and didn't like as much. For this task, you'll need to:

Choose the "Selfie" subtype, and "Man" and "Woman" under Person:
