Wednesday, March 1: Listening vs. Monitoring on Social Media
Sprout Product Focus: Smart Inbox
Sprout’s Smart Inbox is a great tool to ensure you never miss an opportunity to engage with your community.

Brands that can employ a combination of social monitoring and listening foster stronger, longterm relationships with their customer which can lead to a number of positive things for a business. Join us for a conversation on how to use the Sprout platform to be a better listener!
