1️⃣ How are you logging/tracking influencers? - We use CreatorIQ for all influencer tracking. Once they hit our socials, we use metrics on the actual posts( Static/Stories/Paid)  which is from META Paid and/or SS/Social Outlets.

2️⃣ What is your source to track updated engagement rate by industry per quarter? We have our own template, Web Research, research with other like minded companies on their metrics and we set our own goals to make sure we are always growing. 

3️⃣ Do you have a good template for presenting a social media strategy? 

We use Figma to start, then we move everything over to Asana so the company can have eyes and approval. Then we move to SS for solid postings. 

In Figma, we label and post photos to make sure it all looks good - THEN we move captions and creative to Asana within launches/sales/ weekly marketing subtasks

Once everything is approved in Asana then we move all content to SS so it can auto post and save us time in the long run. 

4️⃣ For those using Advocacy and reporting on performance, how do you rectify the difference between Potential Reach in Advocacy and Impressions (for corporate/normal content)? 

Impressions are the metrics we use in our reporting throughout all areas- its solid and actual data. 

Potential is a suggestion in our book but not solid enough to document in reporting. We only use this in the process of marketing to see if its worth it but its not solid in our world.
