4 Essential Community Engagement Metrics You Should Be Tracking – Ep 56

Learn about the four essential community engagement metrics you should be using to measure the health of your online community.

Knowing where to start to measure the health of your online community can feel overwhelming. We recommend using these four essential community engagement metrics, or KPIs (Key Performance Indicators). 

Four Essential Community Engagement Metrics

These are my go-to metrics and are also important for most campaigns:

  1. Overall growth rate of the community and the percentage of growth of the community from month to month.
  2. Engagement rate and how many people are engaging with materials, conversing, applauding and amplifying your content.
  3. Benchmarking and how you’re doing against yourself and your competitors in your niche.
  4. Conversion rate and how many people take action or purchase something.

Is there one more metric that is more important than another?

Answer: It’s hard to pick one, but your conversion rate is hugely important. However, with tweaks to other items, it may impact the conversion rate, so they’re interconnected and interrelated. You have to understand how they play with each other.
