1. Track Press Releases

Not all press releases are actually published in newspapers and magazines. Newspapers will only print a story depending on available space and upon perceived interest of their readers.


With the Internet today, most companies publish their press releases on their web sites for public relation purposes so that their clients, suppliers, investors and partners are aware of their activities. These releases often contain a wealth of information on partnership and alliance, product launch, product promotion and even executive appointment. The article here will show you how TrackEngine can be used to gather such information.




2. Track Online Forum

If you are a brand manager, you will want to know how well your product is perceived by consumers. Internet forums have become very successful channels for users to express their views. A wise Internet savvy brand manager or PR manager will take such users’ feedback seriously by monitoring the appropriate discussion groups to understand users’ perception of their brand and product. TrackEngine can be used to monitor any online forum and you will always be alerted of any discussion related to your product or company. Click here to find out how!
