The online platform was launched mid-2012 as “Pagemonitor”. Recently, along with this new  investment, it was announced that the platform had been renamed to “Fanrise”. At the moment, Fanrise has over 1,500 active users worldwide.

From likes to engagement
Among others, vanHaren, Siemens and Pepsico Netherlands use the analytics tool of Fanrise to gain insights in their Facebook activities and benchmark them. While most companies are mainly collecting likes, Fanrise focuses on mapping the relationships and interactions with the fans. This insight helps companies to better interact with their fans and increase revenues.

Competition
In contrast to competition, Fanrise combines different resources for its analytics. For example, how does the use of Facebook Ads relate to the growth of fans and interaction. The reports and statistics provided by Fanrise answer to the need of supporting and justifying marketing budgets. According to Bram Masselink, co-founder of Fanrise, ‘There is an increasing need for companies to have a better insight into the results of their efforts on Facebook.’
