Influencer Marketing KPIs are often misunderstood even by Marketing Experts. But how can you really guide decisions based on Real and Valuable Data?
Influencer Marketing KPIs can be tricky.
Imagine your life do you prefer to make decisions based on the truth or lies? If you are on a diet, wrong information can have an impact on your health.
And that also happens with Influencer Marketing metrics. Often Brands are omitted from the truth or are provided with false data. And that damages your Brand’s health because decisions are being based on pieces of unreal information.
Engagement Rate Done Wrong
The wrong way: Divide your total number of likes and comments by your follower count, and then multiply by 100 to give you a percentage.
This calculation is based on unrealistic predictions. The algorithm does not show the posts or stories to all the followers!
Posts are seen on average by 12 to 25% of the follower base. So how can you decide based on Real Information?
Engagement Rate Done Right ✅
Did you know that some metrics are private? Inside Primetag‘s Network, Brands and Influencers connect mutually to permit access to a Media Kit generated with Data straight from their Social Profiles.
The Media Kit has Demographic Data, but also an Exclusive Metric, the Average Post Reach. This data allows calculating the Real Engagement Rate.
Total engagements per post/average reach per post * 100
By knowing Influencers Average Post Reach you can choose profiles that reach a broader audience instead of choosing based on followers size.
You can save money by optimizing and choosing Influencers that can spread more your Brand.
But also choose based on who has the most Engaged Audience.
It´s time to Measure Influencer Marketing!
