About Replise


At Replise, we believe in social media. We draw business insights from social media using proven market research methodologies. We help our customers get the cutting edge intelligence they need to create their strategies and define their tactics.


Replise was started in 2008, just a year after Twitter was launched, by a bunch of serial entrepreneurs who believed they could bridge the gap between technology and business. We focus on what we are best at: analysing social media and giving insights; so our customers can focus on what they are best at: their core business. The expertise of our research team, the flexibility of our social analytics platform and the breadth and depth of our data empower our customers.


They can develop better products because we help them understand the needs and wants of their target audiences. They can keep ahead of their competitors and keep up with their industry’s cutting edge because we help them see what’s in the big picture and what is not. This is why we work with brands like Nike, Samsung and Nestle, and many communication agencies across Europe. Now, we are extending our business operations in the US and Canada, so we’re recruiting a complete team of social media pros.
