FIND OUT

They currently have over 210 million Facebook Fans, and are managing more than 2,000 brand profiles across different product categories, markets, and time zones.

One of Nestlé's central challenges is analyzing the enormous amount of data and information they receive from the various activities and interactions with all of the content they produce. "It's about ‘how do we take that data and turn it into meaningful insights?'," explains Sarah Sauder, a DAT member.

Challenges

One of Nestlé's central challenges is analyzing the enormous amount of data and information they receive from the various activities and interactions with all of the content they produce. Additionally, they needed to find a customizable solution that would help them visualize the data into a meaningful and coherent way so that they could understand and draw accurate, actionable insights from it. Not only is monitoring their social performance a critical aspect of their analysis, but they needed the capabilities to benchmark too; this would enable them to measure how their social strategy is performing against the competition and where to improve.

This later came in the form of three dynamic screens that display data from Socialbakers Analytics. These screens provide Nestlé with smarter insights in an easily- readable form - which have become the pillar for their DAT training program. They can monitor the best performing content, user engagement, and the increase/decrease of Fans/Followers on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube about their brands, and those of their competitors, in a single view.
