Meltwater Customer Story - Brand South Africa

Meet The Client

As the Official Custodian of South Africa's Nation Brand, Brand South Africa is responsible for managing the reputation of the country. Established in August 2002, Brand South Africa helps create a positive and compelling brand image for the country, both locally and internationally. Brand South Africa also aims to inspire and instil pride among South Africans and to drive active citizenship among its people.

The Challenge: Managing and Tracking Our Reputation

With the significant responsibility of managing the reputation of the country, Brand South Africa needed a solution that could manage and track mentions, as well as efficiently respond to online posts and comments when necessary. Brand South Africa is tasked with coordinating initiatives to build South Africa's reputation, and so they needed a tool that would help them achieve this while placing South Africa on the global map and maintaining its brand image.

Meltwater Customer Story - Brand South Africa

"We had no in-house social media monitoring tool before using Meltwater, which was something that we needed in order to track our mentions and reputation online. Using Meltwater changed that and we can now do this from an all-in-one solution that meets our needs."
