Report on campaign performance

Enterprise customers can associate posts with campaigns as a way to measure social campaign performance. Associating posts with campaigns populates attributes (for example, predefined tags) for each post. You can then create post metric reports and filter metrics by tag or campaign. See Manage tags.

Plans: Enterprise

To compare specific campaign performance to that of the overall social account, metrics need to be aggregated at the post level (post level metrics are metrics that begin with the word 'Post' in their name, like 'Post likes' or 'Posts table'). Only post level metrics can be filtered by tag or campaign. You can view your campaign posts in the Post performance view. See View your overall post performance.
