What KPIs should you include in a Report?

The KPIs you include will depend on the aspects of your business that you want to focus on. If you are monitoring social media presence for example these are some of the KPIs you might include.

Impressions: the number of times your post was visible in someone’s feed or timeline.

Click-through rate: the ratio of users who click on a specific link to the number of total users who view a page, email, or advertisement.

Cost per click: the amount you pay per individual click on your sponsored social media post.

Conversion rate: the number of users who do the action you want them to do compared to the total views on the post.

Customer satisfaction score: average satisfaction score you get. This is commonly visualized as “n out of 5 stars”

There are many use cases and this depends on your data.
