Sentiment Analysis

Identify customer sentiment in online comments
How do people feel about your brand and communicate that sentiment? Trying to keep a finger on the pulse of customer sentiment is not a straightforward task, and it can be resource intensive. Our sentiment analysis service helps you to better understand customers' feelings about your business.

Are positive words always perceived to be positive reviews?

Examine what customers are saying about your brand, and detect sentiment around their use of language. Detect positive and negative sentiment in social media, customer reviews and other sources to get a pulse on your brand. Sentiment analysis uses Natural Language Processing (NLP) to sort and categorise unstructured data from the Internet. This area of artificial intelligence assists computers with understanding human language, and allows valuable insights to be drawn from data in a matter of minutes. This is a concept found in email inboxes, where incoming messages are automatically sorted according to whether the AI believes the content is spam, and more sophisticated email clients can distinguish between Social, Primary or Promotions.

The core benefits of sentiment analysis are the facility for large-scale analysis, and giving structure to otherwise unordered data. It would take a human being hours to sift through thousands of social media comments and categorise them by the intent behind them. Sentiment analysis enables this process to take place automatically, meaning that resources can be allocated to the interpretation of the results rather than their time-consuming collection. The process also allows unbiased, objective sorting of data and even suggests the most effective response. 

Sentiment analysis also considers the all important context in which a comment or share was posted. This teaches further meaning to the sentiment and can be highly emotive to those who are following a thread or engaged in group chat. With this 'doubling up' of applied meaning, we can truly assess the sentiment behind social media 'buzz' to help shape future PR, product launches, services and brand identities.

Our sentiment analysis service

We track sentiment analysis over time. This provides vital information about the success of marketing campaigns, PR and external factors. Our sentiment analysis service gauges sentiment when dealing with reviews, perceptions of new products, and other key areas that customers may respond to online.

If feedback is left unmonitored and not responded to in good time, this could foster the impression of an uncaring brand at best, and become a PR disaster at worst. Sentiment analysis, particularly when conducted as part of a wider pulse-taking insight project, can empower businesses to understand their customers better and deliver products and services that meet their needs and exceed expectation.

In situations where you are dealing with major problems, you can quickly determine key pain points in order to help you to develop a sensible plan to solve them. We apply machine learning to any feedback generated by customers, classifying it using an objective system of tags and labels. The model increases in accuracy with every text it processes, meaning that accurate data can be generated on hundreds of items almost instantaneously. Using sentiment analysis software, we process customer feedback and automatically tag it with positive, negative or neutral sentiment.

The insight generated from sentiment analysis can help to inform business decisions around products and services. We examine opinions, problems and requests from your customers to pinpoint common areas for improvement using online feedback from a number of channels, including reviews, support tickets, survey results, verbatim data, and social media messages.
