To help us understand what media monitoring can do for our brands, the BNR team is joined by MyMedia Intelligence co-founder, Paul Chapman.

We’ve come a long way from the days when “media monitoring” involved a ream of paper clippings and transcripts turning up on the boss’s desk each morning. Technology has changed everything.

Media monitoring has evolved into “media intelligence”.

On My Desk

    • Paul took a look at the latest West Australian radio ratings and noted that talkback radio ratings were down during the recent State Election — so where were people consuming their news on that event? There’s a take-out for that for every brand: know where you audience is consuming its news.
    • Nic mentioned the success he’d had selling tickets to his Meet the Media event by advertising it on Facebook, even though he didn’t put a call to action in the ad. Awareness, he said, was enough to encourage people to buy because the event is a good value proposition.
    • Sarah’s recommendation was a service called Mention, which is useful for smaller brands that might be interested in media monitoring but don’t have a big budget.
    • James recommended NPR’s Hidden Brain podcast.
