Looking to better understand your social media analytics?  Here are some tips to help you manually run, analyze and translate your manual social media analytics on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!

Performing Facebook Business Page Analytics

Go to the Facebook Business Page and click “Insights”.
-On the right hand side, click “Export Data”
-Date range: should be included in your assignment
-Data Type: “Post Data”
-File Format: “Excel .xls”
-Layout format: “All page post data”
-Export Data!

Review the data and highlight the rows with overall best performing top 3 posts in green, the worst 3 in red.

Review the content you have highlighted and ask yourself: What do successful posts have in common? What action do people usually take when they engage with the posts? What changes should be made to social strategies moving forward?

Performing Instagram Account Analytics

-Sign into your Instagram account

-Hit the “Insights” symbol (see blue arrow in the graphic below) and take 3 screenshots to capture all the available information (to save for your records).  

-Consider what your top posts have in common and scroll through your feed to review your seemingly least popular content.

-Curate future content with these considerations in mind. Note the times your audience is online and aim to post future content in those active time windows.
