Checking out the Buzz

Posted on: November 4, 2008

radian6Today I have been trying to get to grips with a buzz tracking technology tool most of you would have heard of called Radian6. We have been trialing and looking at a number of technologies over the last couple of months and haven’t yet found the holy grail. At work we try to be as agnostic as possible about the tools we use especially as what we are discovering while choosing a buzz tracking tool – it all comes down to what you want to measure (and also what you can afford!).

Radian6 is often recommended and I have to agree it is one of my favourites from what we’ve seen and trialed – that is as long as I can get it to do what over the next few days! Our trial period ends on Thursday so I’ll let you know how I get on later in the week.

Did you ever look at SM2 by Techrigy? We offer a freemium service at and I would be happy to personally walk you through a demo and discuss your needs.

With tracking buzz, we offer some pretty awesome analytics that will allow you to view your campaigns visually to see how they have been trending.

Best Regards,
Jim Reynolds
Director of Sales

Thanks Jim it would be great to speak to you – I’ll send you an email with my details now.

Hi Sarah,
Thanks for including us in your post, pleased to have you and your agency taking us for a test drive. We’d love to help you out to ensure you are able to get exactly what you are looking for.

Please feel free to contact me directly at: richard [at]

I look forward to speaking with you.

Hi Sarah, we provide an advanced analytic and monitoring service which is distinctly different than others you may have looked at. You’d mentioned that you are trying to be “tool” agnostic which is a smart thing to do. Some customers require basic monitoring but others will need extensive analytics including geo-demograhic segmentation, auditable sentiment scoring and automated context analysis.
If you’d like to hear more, please let me know.

Hi Sarah, we offer a service that is very similar to Radian6 but we focus more on small to medium-sized businesses. Right now we are working as an agency but we will be releasing a consumer version of our software that will allow companies to self serve. If you have questions about us, check us out.


Thank you everyone for your comments I look forward to speaking to you all!

Hi Sarah,
Sorry to jump on this so late, we are a UK based provider for exactly what you are looking for,

I thought I would ping you and see if you were interested in a demo on our solution/ or trial.

I look forward to hearing from you
