Not a Client?

Haven't signed on with Campus Sonar yet? Think of all the online conversations you're not picking up!

For college campuses, it's likely that less than a third of your online mentions are on Twitter alone. That leaves blogs, discussion forums, online comments, reviews, video captions, and more that you're missing out on.

Sign up for Campus Sonar and we'll not only listen to all of those sources, but provide the insight and analysis to help you find what really matters and plan a path forward. Using your audience's conversations to drive your strategy also drives outcome—according to the Edelman Trust Barometer study, the most trusted spokesperson is a "person like yourself."

Campus Sonar can help you find the people like you to guide your campuses conversation, strategy, and reputation management. Get started with Campus Sonar today.

The Power of Social Listening

Social listening is a strategic investment to get closer to your students, audience, and community. Whether you're interested in reputation management, proactive customer service, competitive analysis, or audience research, you need to effectively monitor social media. This means more than keeping up with Twitter and your campus Facebook page and groups. No matter how many staff you have, you can't find all the mentions of your institution across 80 million+ online sources without social listening software and skilled analysts. That's where Campus Sonar comes in.

We Provide Actionable Insight to Ignite Campus Strategy
