It is important to discuss Media activity according to highlight. The main purpose of companies’ activity in media is Brand’s particular position.. First of all, positive information determines society’s loyal attitude towards companies. Accordingly, negative messages spread in Media put Brands at risk and decreases their chances to become trustworthy business subject for society oriented on quality.
negative information in Media is low, especially during the last months. The frequency of positive messages could be said to be stable and regular. In difference with quantitative frequency, in the positive message’s quantitative index Luck Oil and Wissol hold first position and have 10 positive messages each, next comes Socar.
According to the analyze we may consider that Oil Companies on Georgian market try to supply Media with positive information and overload the frequency of negative information, for that may cause negative attitude from society and decrease of sales as a result.
Hence, for all business companies it is important to analyze Media Monitoring data regularly, as it forms company’s positive image in the society and increases loyalty.
