Discover new audiences.

Search the internet to find influential users with a shared love for your brand and the things your brand cares about most. Influence maps help marketing teams understand the beliefs, interests, and behaviors shared by groups online so they can build meaningful connections with their most loyal brand advocates.

Leverage the power of influence.

Get the insights you need to personalize content and make sure it resonates with the most influential subcultures online. Know the extent to which one subculture influences another in order to chart the best path to get your brand or message to move from niche to mainstream.

TO INCREASE ORGANIC REACH OF DIGITAL & SOCIAL MEDIA CAMPAIGNS, MARKETING & INSIGHTS TEAMS NEED TO KNOW:

Who is your audience?

Demographics and purchase patterns do not yield the most meaningful customer segments. Segmenting around shared cultures, passions, and ideologies can be a far more powerful tool in audience intelligence.

Are they influential
online?

Build deeper connections and tap new markets by finding the online subcultures that have the power to shape your brand reputation and influence your customers. 

Where are your fans?

Know where influential groups who share your brand values hang out online, including mainstream social platforms as well as dark web and fringe networks that traditional social tools don’t have visibility into.

What’s trending now?

Stop trying to keep up with social media algorithms. Get a breakdown of storylines driven by influential groups online, and get the cultural context you need to engage with these conversations authentically.

What’ll trend next?

Likes, shares, and mentions are not good indicators of what will trend next or go viral. Know when stories are emerging (and the influential groups involved in driving them) before they make their way into the mainstream. 


“True influence is the ability to actually impact thinking and preferences.

We now have a way to use the internet to listen to the most influential communities that share our brand’s core values, so that we can speak their same language and, ultimately, so that we can chart a path to deliver a message that will resonate so much that they will champion it themselves.”

CULTURAL INTELLIGENCE FILLS ANALYTIC GAPS LEFT BEHIND BY TRADITIONAL MARKET RESEARCH AND AUDIENCE SEGMENTATION TOOLS. SAVING BRANDS MONEY AND MONTHS OF ANALYTICAL WORK.
