Why is a LinkedIn dashboard so valuable for marketing managers?

Analyze and Optimize your LinkedIn Game

The interactive LinkedIn dashboard provides B2B companies with the opportunity to analyze and optimize their LinkedIn activities in detail.

To make data quickly accessible and understandable, I have incorporated filtering functions, data visualization, and presentation capabilities into my solution.

This means, that LinkedIn performance can be accessed with just a few clicks, instead of having to work with rows and columns of numbers in an Excel spreadsheet.

Here’s a screenshot of the LinkedIn content performance overview (keep scrolling for a video):

Quick, comprehensive overview of LinkedIn performance

What to Do with Your LinkedIn Dashboard

With a practical dashboard, social media managers are able to access the following performance metrics (KPIs) in just a few seconds:

  • The growth of followers
  • The distribution of followers by industry, company size and management level
  • Visual representation in a heat map (Google Maps) of follower origin
  • Post performance metrics such as likes, comments, impressions
  • Filtering and sorting LinkedIn posts by likes, comments, impressions
  • Comparison of organic post performance to LinkedIn ads
  • Trend analysis of impressions and followers over selected time periods (2 mouse clicks)
  • Links to each authored LinkedIn post

With this information and data visualization, marketing managers, social media managers or other management levels have the following leverage:

  • Assess the effectiveness of the LinkedIn marketing strategy and optimize it within the company
  • Analyze the content strategy sharply and make meaningful deductions regarding messages, target audience and formats
  • Make decisions regarding budget allocation for LinkedIn activities
  • Measure the success of LinkedIn campaigns
  • Store all LinkedIn data long-term. (Note: LinkedIn deletes access to performance metrics after 365 days – as of April 2024)
Chapter 3

The uniqueness of the LinkedIn dashboard: Reporting capability!

Your Dashboard as Reporting Tool

The LinkedIn dashboard can also be used as a reporting tool. This means that analysis views can be communicated on the intranet, website, or via email to a selected audience.

Specifically, this means: Share LinkedIn performance with your team.
And all this (again) only with a few clicks!

Chapter 4

Who is the LinkedIn dashboard really intended for?

Right for You?

This question can be answered simply. Concisely and without further ado: For any B2B company looking to implement LinkedIn as a marketing channel and/or enhance their LinkedIn presence with strategic and analytical approaches.

Chapter 5
