2. Get post analytics and hashtags


Speed up your content production and focus on actual content quality.

Pick a social media platform from the menu bar, sort posts  by engagement and you’ll get a list with the top-performing posts within a time range.

In each post card, you get in-depth insights for engagement and how your content performs compared with averages.

Compare posts impressions, reach and engagement, and see the posts interactions:

Note!

The reach and impressions metrics are available only for the profiles and pages you manage, and not for the competitors’ pages.


3. Speed up your content production


Looking for content ideas?

You can add a group of pages from your niche and search through their postings to get content ideas.

For example, if you want to find out ideas for the Mother’s Day campaign, you can search through postings within a project using the search bar.


4. Get all your competitors’ postings in one place


Everything you need to know about your competitors is now in one place. Understand their content strategy and its effectiveness to avoid making their mistakes.

Group your competitors’ pages in one project and search through their postings for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok.

Once you add them into Socialinsider dashboard, you can get:

  • Their hashtags

5. Tag a few posts for a deeper content analysis


Posts Tagging is for those of you who love experiments and want to back up your decisions with data. Carousel or a single photo? Video or image? Jeans or dresses?

Here’s how to tag posts from the Posts Newsfeed section:

Once you’ve added profiles or business pages into the Socialinsider dashboard, you can access the ‘Posts Newsfeed’ section where you can look at all the content across all social media profiles within the project.

  • Step 1 - Select Posts Newsfeed from the sidebar. Choose the platform on which you’d like to analyze content or run a cross-channel content analysis.
  • Step 2  - Choose the time range needed.
  • Step 3 - If you want to tag posts across Facebook, Instagram, Instagram Stories Twitter, YouTube, and TikTok start by searching for  a keyword and get a list of postings with that keyword.

In my case, I’d like to see all Levis postings across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube with this hashtag - #liveinlevis.

Please note!
When searching through posts by keywords using more than one word it may return posts that contain a single word of a combination of the words searched.

  • Step 3 - Hit ‘Tag campaign’ to instantly add a new Post Tag.
  • Step 4 - Once you’ve started to build up your set of tags, it’s easy to pick one from the list and assign it to specific posts.

Important tip!
Right now, you don’t have the option to auto-tag posts by a keyword or to automate tagging. You need to tag them manually and before starting tagging them, make sure you’ve selected the right time range for your analysis.
