Easily identify whether one of your clients’ accounts has fewer followers while the others are going strong to adjust your social media strategy accordingly.
Tip: Highlight your clients' follower growth by comparing current and past periods in a concise report. Pair this data with key engagement metrics for a comprehensive view of follower quality and overall social media performance.
2. Conversions (from Social)
To run ROI-driven campaigns as part of your social media strategy, social media marketers need to track the number of conversions coming from each platform. This metric is a quick performance indicator, showing how close you are to reaching your clients’ business goals. Report conversions to your clients for goal-setting and KPI tracking.
Conversions from your clients' social networks offer a wealth of actionable insights, whether it's customers completing a form or purchasing a product from social media posts. You define the conversion parameters, and the dashboard, integrated with Google Analytics–tracks it for you.
By pulling in data from Google Analytics, monitor conversions across multiple channels. A low conversion rate might indicate an ineffective call to action (CTA) or a lack of follower engagement with your client's brand. Use this key performance indicator to guide strategy adjustments and optimize outcomes.
3. Revenue (from Social)
Revenue from social tracks the exact amount of money your clients are earning through each social channel. If you’re running campaigns for an eCommerce client, for example, this is an essential metric to track. Without social media dashboard tools, it can be difficult to separate social revenue from other sources.
Knowing just how much money your clients earn from each platform gives you insights into which platforms are contributing to the bottom line and which ones may need more attention. If there’s a drastic difference between the revenue you’re bringing in on different platforms, you tweak your approach and fine-tune your strategy to lead your clients toward success.
4. Web Traffic from Social Media Posts (Sessions)
The dashboard also shows you the number of sessions your followers have initiated on your client’s website, via the Google Analytics integration. This metric gives you and your clients a better idea of how effective your content is at driving people to your offer. It pulls in traffic from all social sites, including Facebook, LinkedIn, TikTok, Instagram, and more.
This is also another good indication of how engaged your clients’ followers are. If you’re experiencing low web traffic, take a closer look at the CTAs on your social posts. While some web traffic comes from a customer clicking on a link in your profile bio, most will come from you actively telling them to click and visit the website.
One of the most important marketing metrics to track when it comes to follower engagement is the number of comments your clients get on posts. If your followers aren’t leaving comments on your posts, it can mean one of two things: either current and potential customers aren’t that interested in your content, or your followers are of low quality or not real.
Low engagement can wreak havoc on your clients’ social media channels. It also makes it harder for potential customers to find your clients’ brands and can even lessen their brand authority.
Fortunately, the social media dashboard displays the comments your clients are getting on various platforms in a single view, making it much easier to respond to everyone and create posts that resonate more with the target audience.
Likes on your clients' posts serve as a key engagement metric across their social media platforms. They not only reflect audience approval, but also influence the post's exposure. When a user likes a post, it often becomes visible to their network, broadening their reach to potential customers.
As you cultivate a client’s audience, it's crucial to meet their quality expectations consistently. Tracking likes allows your agency to plan social media posts that resonate with the target audience.
This metric, displayed on your dashboard, offers a direct insight into customer engagement. It can swiftly signal if there's a need to enhance the quality of your posts, ensuring you maintain a strong connection with your clients’ audiences.
7. Posts/Videos (Stat) Across Social Media Channels
How often you schedule posts for your clients depends on your client agreements.
The dashboard conveniently displays this data for each account, making it easy for both you and your clients to track how your agency is validating its client agreements and ensures you schedule posts according to the best-performing posting frequency.
8. Posts/Videos (Feed)
As a marketing agency, you should also be keeping up with what’s posted on each account on a daily basis. The social media dashboard provides a feed for each platform in a single place, so you don’t have to switch back and forth between different apps.
As you scroll through this feed, be sure to pay attention to the content your team is posting. Take full advantage of that instantaneous market research to improve your engagement and conversion rates.
9. Demographics and Geographics of Subscribers
The social media dashboard enables tracking of vital demographic information on platforms like Facebook and YouTube. Access data such as country, city, gender, and language with ease. This information helps assess whether the target audiences of your clients are effectively reached.
For local businesses aiming to engage customers in their immediate geographic area, this metric is crucial. If followers are located elsewhere when targeting New York City, for instance, it's a clear signal to adjust content and posting habits.
However, for online businesses, geographic data might be less critical unless the client doesn't ship to certain regions. In such cases, focus more on the gender, age, and language of followers, especially if the client has a specific target audience. If this audience isn't being reached, it's likely time to tweak ad campaigns.
These are the nine sections recommended to include in your social media dashboard template–it’s easy to add or remove sections with the drag-and-drop editor. Ready to get started?
