Emotions play an important role in influencing consumer behavior. Whether it's excitement, frustration, joy, or anger, emotions can shape how individuals perceive and engage with brands.

Recognizing the importance of emotional insights, Brand24 has introduced an Emotion Analysis feature that allows businesses to delve deeper into the sentiments expressed by their target audience.

How Emotion Analysis Works

Brand24's Emotion Analysis leverages advanced natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning algorithms to scan social media, blogs, news articles, and other online sources for mentions related to your brand, product, or industry.

What sets this feature apart is its ability to not only identify sentiments (positive, negative, neutral) but also to categorize and quantify emotions.

Here's how it works:

  1. Data Collection: The tool continuously monitors a wide range of online sources, collecting mentions related to your specified keywords, hashtags, or brand name.

  2. Sentiment Analysis: Emotion Analysis performs a sentiment analysis, categorizing mentions into positive, negative, or neutral sentiment.

  3. Emotion Recognition: The tool then goes a step further by identifying the specific emotions expressed within the sentiment.

  4. Emotion Metrics: Brand24's Emotion Analysis provides valuable metrics and visualizations, offering insights into the emotional landscape surrounding your brand or product.

Where to find it?

To access Brand24's Emotion Analysis feature, simply navigate to the Lab24 section located in the left menu of your Brand24 dashboard.

Once in the Lab24 section, you can seamlessly enter Emotion Analysis in your project, gaining valuable insights into the emotional landscape surrounding your brand or product. It's just a click away, putting the power of emotion-driven analytics right at your fingertips.

What's Inside?

Inside Brand24's Emotion Analysis feature, users will discover two powerful visualizations that provide a comprehensive understanding of the emotional landscape over time.

The first chart illustrates the percentage distribution of emotions within a specified time frame, offering a snapshot of how emotions are evolving.

The second chart displays the dynamic changes in emotions as they unfold over time, allowing for a granular analysis of sentiment fluctuations.

Emotions are detected within the text using advanced AI, which classifies each mention into one of the following emotion categories: Admiration, Anger, Disgust, Fear, Joy, Sadness, or Neutral.

These emotions often align with sentiment, but they offer a more detailed glimpse into the exact feelings expressed by the authors of the mentions.

Note: Access to Emotion Analysis is available for Pro and Enterprise plans on their projects, while other plans have access to the Demo project.

Key Benefits of Emotion Analysis

  • Deeper Insights: Unlike traditional sentiment analysis, Emotion Analysis goes beyond a simple positive/negative classification, providing a nuanced understanding of the emotions behind consumer opinions.

  • Content Strategy: Businesses can use emotion insights to tailor their content strategies. For example, they can create marketing campaigns that resonate with specific emotional triggers in their audience.

  • Crisis Management: By identifying and quantifying negative emotions, brands can swiftly address issues and crises, minimizing reputational damage.

  • Product Improvement: Understanding customer emotions can help businesses fine-tune their products and services to meet their customers' needs and desires better.

  • Competitive Analysis: Emotion Analysis can be applied not only to your brand but also to your competitors, allowing you to benchmark and gain a competitive edge.
