TIKTOK ANALYTICS: 6 IMPORTANT METRICS FOR YOUR CAMPAIGNS

January 29, 2021 Posted by Artificial Intelligence, Influencer Marketing 0 thoughts on “TIKTOK ANALYTICS: 6 IMPORTANT METRICS FOR YOUR CAMPAIGNS”

There’s no denying that TikTok is a powerful platform to drive awareness and conversions for your business. As 51% of TikTok influencers are Gen Zs and Millennials, TikTok is a great opportunity for brands to expand their reach and drive active engagement with the younger generation on social media.

From choosing the right influencers to keeping track of their performance, there are important TikTok analytics that brands must know to optimize their campaigns. Just like running influencer marketing campaigns on other platforms, brands will have to find the right TikTok creators to reach the right target audience. Monitoring influencers’ performance and determining which influencers are producing results also becomes essential when it comes to influencer campaign management. 

Today, we’ll be looking at 6 metrics in total, broken down into 3 different categories – Influencer statistics, follower demographics, and campaign engagement. Let’s dive in now!

TikTok Influencer statistics

Influencer Engagement Rates

Engagement rate is one of the key performance indicators (KPIs) of a TikTok creator. Using our TikTok Influencer Analytics, you will find a set of comprehensive metrics to measure influencer’s engagement, including Average Plays, Average Comments, Average Shares, Average Likes and Suspicious Follower Rate. 

In general, we would recommend brands to collaborate with micro-influencers. According to our influencer marketing report, influencers with 10k-100k followers have the highest average likes and views on TikTok compared to other influencer tiers. It is also highly possible for brands to reach and engage millions in minutes as TikTok micro-influencers often have more views than their follower count.

For more information, read our full report here.

Followers Timeline

Followers timeline, together with suspicious follower rate, can help brands to measure the authenticity of an influencer. Timelines with sharp spikes suggest that influencers have earned a massive following in a short span. This phenomenon happens for several reasons such as hosting of giveaways, partnerships with big brands, influencer scandals or even buying fake followers. Regardless of the reasons behind, marketers should always be cautious when seeing these concurrent spikes above.

Engagement Timeline

Engagement timeline is another factor worth looking into when finding the TikTok influencers. Influencers with an engagement rate that is going downhill is not a good signal, even if they have had pretty good engagement rates in the past. It shows that either the content is less interesting over time or the influencer is currently not active enough to maintain his/her engagement.

Audience Demographics

With this metric, brands can understand the influencer’s audience based on their demographics such as age range, location and gender distribution. This metric can help brands to check if their audiences match the demographics of your target market. More importantly, it keeps marketers from wasting time and money on marketing to those who aren’t likely to be your customers.

TikTok Campaign’s Engagement

Campaign overview

When tracking your campaign’s performance, the first thing you should look into is the overall campaign results, which include Total Estimated Reach and Average Engagement Rate. From that you can calculate different metrics including CPM (Cost Per Mile), CPE (Cost Per Engagement) and CPV (Cost Per View).

According to Influencer Marketing Hub, TikTok organic engagement rates range from 3% to 9% based on their following. So in this case, an influencer campaign with an average engagement rate of 16% is a highly engaging campaign. 

Engagement breakdown

One of the most attractive metrics to measure campaign performance is the engagement breakdown for TikTok videos. By knowing what are the TikTok posts that have received high engagement rates, brands can identify which influencers are driving more value. Brands can also know whether their content strategy is working so as to get better ideas for future video marketing campaigns. 

Using Affable’s TikTok influencer campaign analytics platform and Content Discovery Tool, you can easily find the total reach and engagement for each video, together with estimated engagement rate in 4 different metrics: Views, Comments, Likes and Shares.

The results can also be exported into an Excel spreadsheet so you can easily keep track of your results and present it to your team.  

Bonus: Using Affable’s Content Discovery platform, you can also track your competitor’s performance on TikTok. Simply use our advanced filters to search for influencer’s content and you can see what kind of content your competitors are producing and how well they are engaging the audiences!

 

With the increase in demand for video content, brands have started jumping to the brandwagon and finding success by collaborating with TikTok influencers. Using Affable’s platform, brands will be given access to thousands of influencers on TikTok, make clever collaborations with them with our trusted influencer analytics, manage conversations and measure effectiveness – all in one place.

Influencer Marketing in India

December 12, 2018 Posted by Artificial Intelligence, Influencer Marketing 0 thoughts on “Influencer Marketing in India”

Influencer Marketing in India is on the rise, and for good reason: the right influencers can make or break a brand. It is no surprise that brands in India are joining in on the trend, but can they truly get the promised return on investment from their influencers?

The rising problem of Fake followers 

In India, there are over 30,000 India influencers (and counting!) in our instagram influencer database. By running our instagram influencer analytics, we acknowledged that there is a large number of influencers who have been using infamous ways to buy their Instagram followers. Do you know that a payment as little as ₹150 ($2.10) can earn you up to 1000 followers?

We all know that buying instagram followers is a bad idea. One of the reasons that influencer marketing works so well is the ability of influencers to create real impact over the purchasing behaviors of their fans. Once the audience itself is fake and can easily be purchased, little room for campaign effectiveness can remain.

How to tell if an influencer has bought followers?

One manual way to figure out if an influencer has purchased followers is by sifting through their followers. If you see something like the following then there is a high chance that the followers are paid for:

 

Similar account names, with stock imagery as profile pictures

As you can probably see, this process is highly manual and time-consuming. Luckily, at Affable, our machine learning algorithms do that for you! This is described in our previous post.

The good news

It’s not all gloom and doom. India has plenty of authentic, engaging influencers, and our advanced instagram influencer analytics can help you find them within a few minutes! Here is a food influencer that our search engine identified as having one of the highest engagement levels:

Sample analytics of @the_savage_lens on available on Affable

@the_savage_lens is a Pune based creator that takes gorgeous pictures of foods. Our analysis shows that he is one of the most engaging Indian influencers with an average engagement of 11%, which is several times higher than the 1.49% engagement of similar influencers. This, of course, is no mystery once you see how beautiful and well composed his posts are:

So my dear dear sizzy, Nidhi, accept this entry of a Desi snack with a twist. The twist is that I made the Vada and everyone twisted after eating it because I misjudged the amount of spices. I know I'm awesome at cooking. No claps pls. 🙂 . Anywho, it's Wednesday… midweek and I've finally come home. My braveheart crossing 14 signals to go to office and another 14 to come back home. And typing this caption while waiting in between the ever growing traffic, pollution and population of Pune just to save a few minutes so that after coming home I can just post it ASAP because I gotta leave for work!🥂 . Ah! Wasn't I just back from one? Yeah, that was the one which pays my bills. This is the one which pays for my smiles. Yes, you might have guessed it right – Photography. I'm finally visiting a place I've always loved. Which place is that? Well.. keep checking the stories for details. 🐿️ . I'll roast you if you find typos 🦅

Detect Fake Instagram Followers using AI

November 22, 2018 Posted by Artificial Intelligence, Influencer Marketing 0 thoughts on “Detect Fake Instagram Followers using AI”

How do you know if the influencers you have in mind are truly authentic?

More than ever before, brands are all bringing up concerns about the authenticity of social media influencers. Due to many infamous ways of buying Instagram followers, follower count is not enough to measure an influencer’s popularity as it can be artificially inflated. That’s why influencer marketing tools like Affable.ai are born to provide brands with data-driven analytics and make their decision-making more precise and efficient.

So, how can brands detect those fake followers and find the right influencers for their influencer marketing campaigns? 

Detecting Fake Followers Manually

It is quite simple to check whether an account is suspicious or not. Let’s look at the profile below. – The number of posts and the staggering following-to-follower ratio clearly indicates that this is a dummy account. Despite how easy it sounds like, this method is time-consuming and quite impossible to implement as you can not check thousands of followers in an influencer’s account!

Using AI to Detect Fake followers 

At Affable, you will be given access to our extensive Instagram influencer database and find authentic influencers in no-time. Influencers with a high percentage of suspicious followers may be an indication that they are using questionable techniques to inflate their numbers. According to our Instagram influencer analytics, on average, an influencer account has from 5% – 15% suspicious followers.

If this is not enough, our algorithm also looks at other criteria to gauge its authenticity. You can easily check their engagement rate which is a critical factor as it measures the level of interaction from followers for the content created by influencers. You can also compare their engagement rate with other similar influencers to choose the best influencer for your campaign!

      

Another statistic worth looking into is Follower Growth over Time. Sharp spikes typically suggest that the account achieved a mass-following in a short span. These spikes happened for several reasons such as giveaways, partnerships with big-name brands, influencer scandals or buying fake followers. Regardless of the reasons behind, marketers should always be cautious when seeing concurrent spikes as below.

Affable : AI solution to scale word-of-mouth marketing

June 18, 2018 Posted by Artificial Intelligence 0 thoughts on “Affable : AI solution to scale word-of-mouth marketing”

Over the last couple of years, marketers have shifted their marketing budgets towards micro influencers on Instagram. As brands can get as much as 20% ROI and be able to engage with  a niche audience with lesser costs, micro-influencer marketing is an ideal strategy to invest into and make the best of influencer marketing benefits.

The current process of finding and working with micro-influencers on instagram is highly manual, time-consuming and full of guesswork. Marketers spend days manually searching through hashtags finding for a relevant user, and then based on vanity metrics like number of followers & asking friends, they decide whom to engage.

Affable is an end-to-end platform that help marketers discover authentic influencers in our micro-influencers database, engage and measure effectiveness of influencer marketing campaigns.

 

As one of the best influencer platforms, Affable is built on computer vision algorithms to profile micro-influencers on Instagram through their images. We scan public Instagram content to gauge user-interest from their images and videos. If you can’t find an influencer on our platform, no problem! We allow all users to add new influencer to our micro-influencers database: Just click analyze on a non-existing influencer, and their complete profile will be delivered to your email in minutes!

The problem of bots and fake-accounts has plagued social media, and lots of Instagram influencers seem to have a surprisingly high number of suspicious followers. With Affable, you can determine influencer’s true reach by checking their suspicious followers:

Additionally, you probably don’t want to work with influencers who used to partner with your competitors as it goes against influencer marketing benefit, right? We can help you avoid such incidence by listing down all the brands that influencers have worked with before. It also shows whether the post was sponsored or organic, when the image was posted and links to those posts for further reference.

Affable’s post-campaign analytics helps marketers determine the true reach — the persona of the audience that engages with the influencer content. This helps marketers not only measure the reach of the current campaign but also helps them decide which micro influencers to work with, in the future.

 

Our vision is to empower anyone — from a homepreneur to an enterprise — with tools that can scale their word-of-mouth marketing requirements. We strongly believe that technology can make it possible, and at Affable we are building that technology that unlocks scale in word-of-mouth marketing and exploit the best of influencer marketing benefits.
