Why Accurate Reporting Matters 📈

You might be asking yourself: why do I need to care about my social media reports?

These figures matter because they allow you to learn from where you’ve been, to better inform where you’re heading.

Social media analytics can certainly be hard to translate for audiences who aren’t well-versed in the world of social. But, you have to be able to explain what you’re working towards and why it matters. In short, you need to show results.

If you’re spending time on social media at all, why not make it count?

3 Ways to Robust Reports With SmarterQueue 💡

The good news is, if you’re looking for advanced analytics and smart insights, you’re in the right place!

Actionable Analytics

Gone are the days of your social media analytics just being pages and pages of data. Instead, make way for reports that are easy to read and easy to action. When engagement figures can be compared between content types and categories, they become more than vanity metrics. Measuring engagement by category tells you how your audience responds to your content strategy and how you can adjust to meet their needs.

  • Find the best hashtags. Use the Analyse a Social Profile tool to see which hashtags you’ve used and which have seen the most engagement. Plus, find out how many hashtags are optimal. Never write another post when you have to guess which hashtags to use!

  • View reporting by category. When you can see detailed insights for each of your categories, reporting moves from vanity metrics to vital information. See which content category performs the best, and tailor your social media strategy accordingly.

Your Audience, Your Data

Discover the best times to post for your own audience. What type of your content gets the most engagement? Which categories are most successful at different times? Forget generalisations: find out what really works for your unique audience.

  • Sort posts by engagement. On the Past Posts page, sort by ‘Highest Likes %’ to find your most engaging content so far. Then, hit … and choose Re-Queue to add your best posts back into your Queue.

  • Check out your Evergreen boost. On the Past Posts page, choose ‘View Evergreen Posts Grouped’ to see your SmarterQueue Boost. This tells you how successful your Evergreen recycling has been – how much more engagement you’ve seen with recycling than by posting your content just once.
