Company description

Launched in October 2013, Chicago-based Earshot filters social media posts coming from locations of interest and converts them into real-time intelligence and relevant engagement opportunities. As a new way for brands to leverage social media for customer acquisition and retention, the Earshot solution provides clients with the tools and technology for a more proactive approach to social media management. Earshot combines location, profile data and the post itself, to help brands proactively connect and convert consumers at the right time, right place, regardless of handle or hashtag. By effectively combining the privacy interests of consumers with a more authentic voice of the brand, Earshot is enabling a new approach to engagement that yields higher conversion rates, deeper loyalty and new forms of earned media.
