I found some pretty good stuff over at 

Social Media and Marketing by Bogdan Fiedur

The conversation is about listening.  Which we should be doing everyday to what our market is saying.  Below is section on listening tools and I think this was well worth sharing but I urge you to visit and read the entire article and conversation.  Heck join in Here  

I know that many of you are on a budget ( who isn’t these days lol), so the tools that I’m showing you are free tools that are very effective for the job of social listeningGoogle Alerts  Google Alerts is a free email notifications service that sends you an email when your listed names are mentioned and if you want to know some creative ways to use Google Alerts then you should take the time to read Five Creative Uses for Google Alerts via alan Henry. Now I also have to mention that for some reason I have not been fully satisfied with this service for a while, not sure what is going on, but its still a service to keep in mind.Talkwalker AlertsTalkwalker Alerts is free and easy alternative to Google Alerts. I discovered this service not too long ago and I have to tell you I am more than impressed with the service and I am getting a lot more information than I ever did with Google Alerts. If someone can explain this to me, I would love to know why!TopsyHow do I explain Topsy – it is a real-time search engine powered by the social web and it is brilliant in what it is doing. Not only will you find out what people are saying about you or your brand ( you), but its great for showing trending topics.SocialmentionSocialmention allows you to track and measure what people are saying about you, your affiliate product across the web’s social media landscape in real time. You can explore or opt to receive social media alerts (similar to Google Alerts but for social media only.)IcerocketA free resource for brand monitoring, it taps the Web, blogs, Twitter, and Facebook, and delivers easy-to-read results in one page.One last thought about this affiliate marketing tip is start listening and really see what people are thinking and saying. Once you practice the art of listening then when you are promoting your affiliate product you will better able to gauge what your customers and fans are saying and you wont be caught off guard.
