This module provides you with a one-page report on the below 10 reports:

Comparisons Module Tips

  • When viewing the “Follwers/ Fans Trend” chart, the page is initially defaulted to a line chart. It’s best to gauge the data by changing the chart to a pie chart when you select 10-22-2016 9-51-30 PM. You can do the same for all other charts that fits your best visual needs.

  • Pay more attention to Page Story Tellers (PTAT) than the other metric or reports. Let’s take a look at the chart below. In comparison with the above data, Brand C takes majority of the fans with close to 600,000 fans. However, the number of people talking about their page is minuscule in the graph below. Although with only 25,834 fans, Brand K is one of the most talked about page for this. This could mean two things: that the page has viral content or they are spending more for ads compared to their competitors. This means that if your brand is Brand K, then you are in the right direction. High PTAT = more engagement = more brand equity. However, this is only relates with online marketing. Your counterpart brands may be more exposed in other forms of offline media, but to have more favorable PTAT over your competitors is a great indicator that they are not paying enough attention to their existing fan base.

  • When you are a minority in terms of brand equity, most likely, your fans are also fans of your competitors. This means you are competing for your fans time with your competitors. The Account Posts chart is a great indicator of how your brand fairs with your competitors’ posts. Another complimentary metrics that you can check based on account posts is Page Interactions.

  • Another overview chart to check is Page Summary Table as seen below. This chart provides you with a broad data of your number of followers and change in growth. Additionally, interactions, admin posts, and response rate is also provided. It’s up to you how you can make use of these data. But If you are not getting the right response rate you’re after, perhaps you should tell your content producer to improve content.
