We are delighted to announce Visible Technologies as our Lead Sponsor for Monitoring Social Media 09. Recently identified by Inc. Magazine as of the fastest-growing companies in the US (#170 on the Inc. 500 List), Visible Technologies provides social media listening and engagement tools for some of the worlds biggest brands, including Microsoft and Xerox.
Founded in 2003, Visible Technologies is probably the most experienced social media monitoring company in the market today. It offers a comprehensive service – based on it’s TruCAST solution – that enables brands to:
- Listen – Identify passionate and authentic brand influencers and activists using their TruPULSE solution (pictured to the left);
- Learn – Assess conversation volume about their brand, find audiences who care about their services and uncover new business opportunities;
- Engage – Participate in conversations about their brand and engage influencers and advocates;
- Protect – Strengthen their Web presence with powerful search engine optimization strategies.
The company has a hugely impressive client list, is growing at 60% year on year, and signed up another 24 Fortune 1000 companies in the 3rd quarter of 2009. Last week, much to the interest of bloggers the world over, it also announced a sizable investment from a venture company that works with the CIA.
Visible Technologies will be at MSM09 on 17th November offering demos, participating in the debate, and, no doubt, answering queries about their recent investment round. For our part, we will be using TruPULSE to monitor the buzz around the conference (in fact, we’ve already started – and loving it) and presenting our findings on the day.
So a big thank you to Visible Technologies for backing the conference and making the tickets nice and affordable for all the attendees. It’s going to be an excellent event. If you haven’t signed up yet, please note: Our early bird offer finishes on Friday!
