Brandtology Assists Governments to Listen and Engage Net-Generation Citizens
Listening to new media is the first step to online engagement
Singapore, June 16 2009 – Brandtology, a leader in providing business and brand online intelligence services, today announced that it will be showcasing its solutions to help governments listen and engage online at iGov2009 at CommunicAsia from 16 to 18 June 2009 at the Singapore Expo Hall 3 booth number 3C3-08.
Themed ‘Integrating Public Services, Engaging Citizens’, the iGov Global Exchange draws 60,000 international participants from governments, the industry and media from about 100 countries and regions across Europe, America, Asia Pacific and the Middle East.
“Online media offers governments the potential to have a cost-effective yet scalable dialogue with citizens,” said Eddie Chau, CEO and founder of Brandtology. “The first step in the engagement process is to listen to online conversations to assess sentiments.”
“For example, posts about the H1N1 influenza virus are being widely discussed in various online media channels around the world, reflecting citizens’ concerns about government actions to combat the spread of the virus.”
“Brandtology’s proprietary and multi-lingual technology helps governments tap into online opinion and make informed policy decisions,” said John Kerr, Regional Director, Edelman Digital Asia-Pacific.
Edelman, together with Brandtology, announced a strategic partnership in May 2009 to offer a range of digital services based on deep online analytics to help Asian governments, marketers and corporate communicators successfully navigate the opportunities and risks to be considered when engaging influencers and communities online.
