The Online Comments Report, a Pioneering Model

The Online Comments Report is a research tool that enables the evaluation of the impact that online comments have on corporate reputation. It is used as a diagnostic tool and allows the classification of comments made on the Internet according the seven key dimensions driving corporate reputation and established by Reputation Institute: Products/Services, Innovation, Workplace, Governance, Citizenship, Leadership and Financial Performance. 

The Report provides a clear idea of what stakeholders are saying about a brand and what those comments mean. It also shows the positioning of a brand regarding its competitors in specific markets and helps companies to identify important trends and insights.

Until now, companies in nine different countries around the world have used this model for more than seventy ad-hoc researches. Besides, this initiative was a finalist for the prestigious Digital Communication Award 2013 within the Digital Monitoring and Evaluation category, where it competed with Bosch Siemens and Wikipedia.
