Building dashboards for your social media analytics
As a social marketer, you are responsible for representing your company’s brand across many platforms. With social listening as part of your content marketing strategy, social marketing plays an integral part of how you share your message to your audience. Whether you're using Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest or other platforms, Klifolio can help your bring all your social media analytics into one dashboard.
Tracking your social media metrics
When it comes to tracking your social media metrics, it's important not to focus only on vanity metrics. Although vanity metrics aren't harmful to keep track of, they tend to focus on lower value stats rather than stats that really highlight your performance and efforts. Engagement metrics, on the other hand, truly help you understand how much of an impact your social media presence is having on your customer acquisition abilities, customer retention and most notably, conversion rates.
You should focus your social media tracking efforts on social media engagement metrics including:
- Comments per post
- Social shares per post
- Engagement rate per follower
- Number of Influencers who shared a post
Are you getting the most from your Instagram account? Did you know that with a business account, you can have access to the free Instagram Insights tool which provides you with helpful performance metrics. You can also do a deep dive on your Instagram Ads thorugh the Facebooks Ads interface. If you're just getting started with Instagram analytics, below are some key metrics you should be tracking.
Top account-based metrics to track in your Instagram account:
- Top Post Rankings: Tracking which post had the most impressions in a day, month, quarter, or year will help you identify what content is being consumed and engaged with the most by your community.
- Top Follower/Influencer: Ranking your followers by the number of followers they have provides you with an opportunity to find the best potential influencer for partnerships and collaborations that will resonate with your community.
- Top Mentions: Tracking top mentions helps you identify top influencers that have interacted with your posts. Building relationships with active influencers can help you create great content that helps with brand awareness and engagament.
- New Followers: Keeping an eye on your follower growth helps you to plan future posts and create a strategy based around past trends.
Top post metrics to track in your Instagram account:
- Post Engagement: The number of times users interact with your Instagram post. This is an important KPI to help you understand the type of content that is most engaging to your users.
- Post Engagement Rate: To calculate post engagement rate, you'll add the number of likes, mentions, and replies and divided that by the number of impressions the post received. Tracking post engagement rate helps you to understand how active and engaged your audience is with your content. Use that data to build a social strategy and experiment with your account.
- Instagram Reach Percentage: To calculate reach percentage, you'll use the total number of impressions divided by the total number of followers. If a post did not perform well, or only saw by a small percentage of your followers, you can try to repost it but in a different format, message, headline, image, etc.
Are you using Facebook Insights to monitor and report on your page and post performance? With Klipfolio, you can pull in your Facebook Insights and create custom vizualizations and dashboards that are easy to share with your organization. You can also combine your Facebook data with data from other social media platforms or Google Analytics, which helps bring your data to the next level. Here are some metrics you should be tracking to monitor your Facebook performance:
- Post Engagement: The number of times users interact with your Facebook posts. This can help you create a strategy by looking at what type of content resonates most with your audience.
- Positive Actions: Tracking the number of likes, comments, and shares your posts receive is a great way to rank your content and decide what types of posts your company should be sharing with your community.
- Negative Actions: Tracking negative actions like unlikes, hiding posts, and reporting content as spam is another great way to verify that the content you're sharing is the type of content your audience is looking for.
- Page Views: How is your page performing month over month? Tracking metrics like page views can help you see if your page is growing at the rate you had planned. Use this data to promote and share your page in new places on your website.
- Organic Reach: Like website traffic, it's important to know how many users saw your content organically. The more followers and engagement you get, the larger your reach becomes.
- Paid Reach: Are you promoting your content on Facebook? Make sure you see ROI for those posts by tracking the paid reach of your posts. Use the data to create a paid strategy for your Facebook account.
As a leading B2B social platform, LinkedIn is commonly used as part of marketing’s ABM strategy to help build 1 on 1 relationships. It’s also used to help share industry information and establish yourself as a thought leader. LinkedIn analytics provide key performance insights around three core areas: Updates, Followers and Visitors.
- Updates: Focuses on the organic and paid content that you're sharing with your LinkedIn audience. You can review key metrics such as the number of impressions, clicks and interactions that people have had with your content. You can also track the number of followers acquired by promoting each update and their engagement levels.
- Followers: Helps you gain insight into your follower growth over time. This includes high level metrics such as the total number of LinkedIn members following your company page or the number of followers you acquired through organic and paid content.
- Visitors: Gain insight into the users who visit but don't follow your LinkedIn profile. Page views is a simple graph that tracks how many times your company page was viewed. If you have a career page, you can report on how many times your different jobs were viewed. Unique visitors helps you to discover how many unique LinkedIn members are interacting with your profile.
