Blogs, blogs, blogs. Whether you write about niche topics or run a CEO blog, your audience perceives the message subconsciously and sentiment can play a major role here. Especially today, people strive for positive information, and the best way to guarantee that is to be certain that your posts are positive.
In this article, we will show how to add sentiment checks to your blogging process. We will use the Monday.com template board to do that.
Here comes a video and the step-by-step guide follows after.
First, let's add the Blogging Planning template. You can find it in the monday.com Template Centre.
Once you press Use Template, it will be automatically added to your workspace.
We need to make some small changes to this template. We will add a Sentiment column that will track content sentiment and we will also add a file column where the article draft can be uploaded. First, let's add a Status column and rename it to Sentiment and also change the labels to reflect our sentiment check:
Optionally, you can update the Progress column to include sentiment check.
We would also need to add a Files column as Bitskout works with direct attachments to analyses text. You can attach either a file or URL where the file is stored.
Once the project is added, we can now use our workflows to check the sentiment. Let's make sure that we have a workflow for that. If not, we can always create it.
In this case we want to make sure that all our content is positive, so we will use a workflow that checks for Positivity. To trigger the positivity check we will use a Bitskout recipe from Integrations.
In this recipe we will do the following - when the column "Content" changes to Done and a file with a blog is attached (or URL to file), we will run a workflow "Positive Sentiment check" and set Sentiment to Positive if the workflow execution is successful, and to Negative if not.
And now, once a new task is created and once the writer sets the Content to Done, we will check it for sentiment:
