Create an ad performance report

Hootsuite provides a variety of built-in report templates to measure engagement and results for your ads and campaigns.

The report templates help you see how your ad campaigns contribute to your business goals. Each template tracks specific metrics that most closely match three key stages in the customer journey (that is, the stages that people go through when interacting with your brand):

  • Awareness: How many people have viewed your ads.
  • Consumption: How many people have engaged with your ads.
  • Intent: How many people have taken an action (visited your website or online shop, or signed up for your newsletter) after seeing your ads.

  1. Go to Analytics.
  2. If the Analytics navigation is not visible, select Expand navigation, and then select New report.
