- COVID-19 has disrupted everything, and the reaction of most businesses has been to focus inwardly. Everything shifted to how companies can continue to function and planning for the future beyond the pandemic seems to be delayed until things return to normal. But an inward focus overlooks the pandemic customer experience — and how your customers can shape the future.
- At Bellomy, when we talk about social monitoring, we see it as fairly narrow in scope — focused on a company, brand, product, or campaign. At a high level, social media monitoring is used to assess and quantify the popularity of a brand or company. From our point-of-view social can do so much more than monitoring online conversations.
- We've heard it for years now — a great employee experience leads to a great customer experience. But as your employees continue to take care of your customers during COVID-19, who will take care of your employees? Here's how going out of your way to support your team during this time can and will boost productivity, improve employee satisfaction, and increase loyalty.

- Do you extract the maximum value from the treasure trove of consumer comments you have? We believe that the best method for maximizing the value of text is by empowering humans with tools that enable effective mining and building frameworks and constructs that continuously build upon past successes.
- Since our original post on March 20 assessing survey response rates immediately after the COVID-19 travel ban, we've been closely following response rates and data impacts on several of our trackers, in both the utility and financial services spaces. Now, in Week 6 of the quarantine, we need to know if people have continued responding to survey invitations at the same rate.
- Being able to connect, communicate, and listen to your customers during the next crisis isn’t just a blessing — it’s a strategic imperative. During a time of crisis — pandemic or otherwise — responsible companies have public relations teams that leap into action to implement a prepared crisis communication plan. Many of us have received these messages. We may have sent some out ourselves. I know I have, on both counts.
- Each customer touchpoint is now more impactful than ever before. Before COVID-19, you might go to the door, grab your pizza, tip the driver, and never think about them again. But now that extreme social distancing is the new norm, we see consumers putting more stock in these previously mundane interactions.
