Yann Guilain, Chief Services Officer at Digimind and Louise Roche, Consulting Director, will tell you:

What is Share of Voice?

Louise Roche: Traditionally, this metric describes the share of your advertising (print, radio or TV) compared to all the competitors’ in your market.

Now that we’re in the digital era, the definition of Share of Voice has expanded to include everything from digital PR, to social media mentions, to website traffic—in other words, every form of measurable brand awareness in your particular market, whether that’s Owned or Earned media. 

Basically, Share of Voice helps you understand how popular your brand is compared to your competitors.

The unique genius in what Digimind offers you is an approach which opens the black box and lets you drill down in a few seconds into your digital data at the level of a given campaign, time period, region, or across different channels.

Do you have a concrete example of a project?


Louise Roche : Indeed, we, for example, are very proud of having helped a major skincare actor during the last 4 years, to move from position 3 to position 1 or 2 in most of their markets worldwide. 

The world  digital team is composed of 80 people, from Global Digital coordinator to local country digital managers. 

We helped them to track and analyze digital campaigns efficiency  from many different sources across the web: Twitter, Instagram, TikTok… and to measure their brand awareness and reach for each region. 

Monthly world webinars were organized to share KPIs, understand the mechanics of efficient campaigns, and leverage on it, as well to update people with the latest tips and things to know about social networks trendy tactics and tips.  

As a result,  the team is now completely autonomous and knows how to identify the performing campaign mechanics and how to reuse them.
