Analytics are everything in the world of online marketing and if you aren’t using them yet you are missing out big time. Opportunities go to waste if you post at the wrong time when everyone is asleep.
This especially applies to digital nomads that travel the world, while they are visiting some beautiful waterfall in South East Asia you are probably sleeping in the US, and without thought they post it, and by the time you wake up there are hundreds of other posts on your timeline and you will never get to see what your most popular Instagrammer just put online.
Instagram bots with analytics built-in
Bots are a very convenient way to grow your Instagram account and many of them already have some sort of analytics build in which makes it way easier for you to keep track of everything. If you want to know which bots provide what type of statistics I suggest you take a look at this guide as they go way more in-depth then I’ll be able to do here.
Not a fan of bots? Not a problem
There are plenty of other apps that integrate with your account and Simply Measured is one of the most popular ones at that. It allows you to easily monitor your follower growth so even if you are a bot user that uses a bot without tracking capabilities this is a pretty much of a must-have so that you know what you are really paying for.
Besides tracking how many followers you acquire it comes with a complete funnel to track conversions as well, especially useful if you are starting to monetize your channel. On top of that it tracks how many likes and views each post gets, as well as the counting of comments. Having all this information in one place will teach you a lot so instead of trying to find ways to gain more followers you might want to optimize your account to reach more of your existing followers. Easy win right?
How about some other apps?
Simple Measured is just one of many apps that can provide you more insight into your account. Some others that are worth a mention are Iconosquare, Sprout Social (a product from the top marketer Neil Patel himself), Keyhole which provides real-time feedback instead of daily reports, Square Lovin which comes with an overall scoring number, and then there is Minter.io which truly takes things to the next level by comparing things and providing tactical insight on how you can improve your posting style.
