Brand Crisis Management

Protect your brand by optimizing crisis communications

The CallMiner Eureka platform captures 100% of conversations across all channels to provide real-time insight into customer sentiment about your brand.

The key to effective brand crisis management

With the speed of digital communications and 24/7 feedback loops with customers, your brand can experience a crisis in no time at all. Seemingly minor concerns from customers can quickly snowball, and negative news coverage can magnify an issue into a full-blown brand crisis.

Capturing and monitoring customer conversations to understand brand sentiment is the most effective way to stay on top of brand crisis management. By understanding what your customers are saying about your brand in real-time, you can head off potential issues before they reach a crisis level. And by identifying which messages and channels will resonate best with your target audience, you can optimize communications to resolve crises quickly and favorably.

The CallMiner Eureka conversation intelligence platform enables you to monitor, capture, analyze, and score 100% of customer interactions at scale. By analyzing these interactions at the deepest level, CallMiner interprets nuance and identifies patterns to provide more accurate brand feedback, allowing you to identify changing trends and successfully avoid or manage brand crises.

How conversation intelligence informs brand crisis management

A brand crisis can erupt suddenly when a product fails very visibly or when bad news puts your brand squarely in the public eye. But often, a large-scale crisis is the result of a series of smaller issues that, had they been addressed earlier, might have been prevented from growing into a major problem.

When your brand experiences a crisis, your teams must respond quickly to assess the issues and contain the damage. In these tense moments, a wrong move can lead to an even larger crisis. Understanding how customers feel about your brand is critical. Unless you have a clear and real-time sense of the depth of brand sentiment, you won’t to know whether the issue is something serious that can affect the bottom line – or if it’s just a false alarm that may quickly resolve without unnecessary attention.

Superior brand crisis management enables your teams to strike the right tone with customers in ways that not only address their complaints but also build more powerful connections. Conversation intelligence technology is essential for this task, delivering a clear understanding of what customers are saying and how their concerns can best be addressed.
