Supporting an A-list Client Base with Social Media Analysis

Sisense helps Preen.Me to generate double-digit ROI from its social media data analysis.

Executive Summary:

Preen.Me, a leading social media beauty platform since 2012 was looking to leverage their large amount of social data. With large data sets that simply ‘broke their Excel spreadsheets,’ it was difficult to extract the most value from their 63+ million social media posts and their Excel spreadsheets with millions of rows of data. After implementing Sisense, Preen.Me has achieved complete transparency into their social media data. Now they are able to map out their business strategy, conduct key business negotiations and support A-list beauty clients, impressing them with valuable insights on competitors.

“We credit much of our two-digit ROI-positive data analysis success to Sisense. Now, we can better uncover crucial, business-generating insights from our data. Clients are fascinated by our analysis, and we are able to turn data transparency into highly profitable business opportunities.”
