Engagement is often viewed as a middle-of the-funnel indicator. However, not all types of engagement are equal. Video views can be interpreted as passive engagement. Comments and likes are active engagement.

The highest engagement levels often reflect purchase intent and endorsement. Shares are often a sign of the highest level of engagement. It’s tempting not to track all engagement. However, certain engagement may be more important for your social media goals.

TikTok Followers

This chart shows you the variation in your audience over time as well as your total followers. It also calculates your growth rate. This percentage helps you stay on track and ensures that your audience grows at a steady pace.

Visual reports can be easily and efficiently prepared

TikTok analytics has one major flaw: it doesn’t offer visual reports. You will need to take screenshots of the graphs and charts you see on the TikTok dashboard and share them or create your own reports.

Exporting your TikTok analytics is not possible. You can only download a spreadsheet with the raw data. You’ll need to then add the data to your custom reporting template, before sharing it with clients and colleagues.

Analytics: How to Optimize Your TikTok Strategy

Choose the right topics to appeal to your audience

Agorapulse’s publishing label allows you to easily identify which topics are most popular with your audience. Are they more engaged with a campaign? Are they more likely to watch behind-the scenes videos over and over again? Was a particular trend popular?

These are some of the key points to keep in mind when you try to recreate your most successful videos. Although it may not make sense to duplicate a campaign, you can reuse topics and trends in your TikTok videos.

Your ideal customers

The TikTok videos with the highest engagement or views are your best-performing content. These videos may not be your best content if they were delivered by TikTok to someone outside your target audience.

You should focus on videos that appeal to your ideal viewers. Take note of the video’s topic and style. Analyze the comments and review the hashtags in the video. Find out what resonated with your audience and how you can recreate it.

Customer sentiment can be improved

Even though there is a lot of negativity, it’s not always a bad thing. In most cases, however, viewers will be more inclined to react positively.

Review the videos that have generated the most positive engagement as you plan new TikTok content. Agorapulse’s Inbox Labels make it easy to track and tag the sentiments of TikTok comments.

Publishing at the right times

Video performance can be affected by topics, styles, or interactive features. You can get more views on TikTok by publishing content at the right times.

You can improve your publishing schedule by using the recommendations in your report. You can increase your chances of getting views and engagement by posting videos or going live when it is most convenient for you. This will help improve your overall performance.

Engage better

Engaging is key to building a TikTok community. It’s important that you remember that engagement can be both positive and negative.

Is your team quick to respond to comments? Is your average response time a few hours or several days?

Your analytics can help you pinpoint problems that are causing delayed responses. Next, create a plan for reducing your response time and establishing more positive connections with viewers.
