The Most Common KPIs in a Marketing Campaign 

Let’s start with the basics. Measuring your marketing campaigns is mandatory. 

Else, how do you measure your marketing efforts?

Regardless of any kind of digital platform you take up for marketing, here are the common KPIs  you need to know:

Social Media:  

  • Reach: The number of people who have seen a post or ad on social media 
  • Engagement: The number of likes, comments, and shares on a post or ad 
  • Conversion rate: The percentage of the desired action taken (such as making a purchase) after seeing a post or ad on social media

Paid Advertising:  

  • Cost per click (CPC): The cost of an ad per click 
  • Cost per acquisition (CPA): The cost of acquiring a customer through an ad 
  • Return on investment (ROI): The revenue generated from a campaign compared to the cost of the campaign

How Marketers Track the KPIs in Google & FB Ads Campaign

Marketers usually track the key performance indicators (KPIs) for their Google and Facebook ad campaigns using the following two:

Google Analytics

This is a free tool provided by Google that allows marketers to track a wide range of metrics, including website traffic, conversions, and revenue.  

Google Ads Manager: 

This is a platform for creating, managing, and analyzing online advertising campaigns that use Google’s advertising network.  Google Ads uses a pay-per-click (PPC) pricing model, which means businesses are charged each time a user clicks on one of their ads.

Facebook Ads Manager

This is a tool provided by Facebook that allows marketers to track the performance of their ad campaigns on the platform. It provides detailed metrics on reach, engagement, and conversions.

The above are the most common tools every marketer, even wanna-be’s, would know. 

Challenges When Tracking the KPIs in Influencer Campaign

The following are the key KPIs to consider when conducting an influencer campaign:

  • Engagement: Likes, Comments, views 
  • Engagement rate
  • Cost per engagement 
  • Cost per view 
  • Conversion & sales
  • Traffic to your website 

The KPIs mentioned above must have taken your long hours after every campaign goes live.

How does it feel like, investing most of your time switching spreadsheets, copy-pasting numbers, and trying to figure out how the campaign performed?

Frustrating, isn’t it?

Let’s take a look at the manual way of an influencer marketing campaign to understand the pain behind it:

Most times, you add a UTM code to your campaign and track the traffic you’ve been receiving after the campaign. 

These UTM codes you must have customized based on the social media channels (traffic source), campaign, content, and the influencer name (if it’s multiple influencer campaigns.) 

Or Calculate the engagement rate of each influencer by dividing the number of impressions by their total followers.

Or Take the average engagement rate for all of your influencers and compare it to industry benchmarks (again, an uncertain number).

Or there must have been a Discount code given to the influencer and track the ROI based on the completed purchases using the coupon codes. 

Ever felt how easy it would have been to have all of this automated and, within a few clicks, to fetch the report?

And you don’t have to borrow extra hours from your next day to create reports or keep track of increasing or decreasing engagement.

An Influencer Marketing Platform Does Just That.
