How to leverage influencer content with a content dashboard 

Social media managers have a content problem. Monitoring and measuring paid, earned and owned content is challenging.

Conversations about streamlining influencer marketing campaigns leaves little room for what to do once a campaign ends.


  • What’s the best way to keep track of influencers’ post statistics?
  • How do you easily assess the most lucrative influencers?
  • Which influencers mention your brand organically beyond the campaign?


As brands grow, the number of influencers who speak about a brand organically grows too.


Without an effective social listening tool, it’s difficult to identify and engage with these creators.


Traditional social analytics tools or manual reporting strategies are often ill-equipped to see an overview of visual content from influencers, customers, and brands. These tools and designed to show the number of clicks came from social channels or revenue generated through affiliates, but struggle with the visual aspect.


The challenge is to manage the multitude of content in a streamlined way to see content and the key costs across all influencer marketing activities. To leverage content, go beyond what core analytics tools offer.


Advanced marketers analyse sponsored and organic content mentions on social channels comparing sponsored content with earned media to benchmark campaigns and influencers.

With the rise in brands opting to supplement influencer activity with paid spend, it makes sense there’s a shift towards using influencers as content creators leveraging their creative skills and keen eyes for what works with specific target markets.


Running a successful influencer campaign is only one part of the puzzle.


Instead of searching through threads of Instagram feeds or through email threads to check and assess agreed content usage rights, use a content dashboard and make the whole process simpler.

Social listening: a stage beyond traditional analytics


The ZINE social listening feature automatically tracks organic content, captions, comment mentions and image tags via the content dashboard. These mentions are alongside sponsored content. Seamlessly sift through the noise and find true fans – advocates who already identify with your ethos and messaging. Compare their stats against influencers you currently work with and assess whether there are key players you might be missing out on who already love your brand.

All your earned, owned and paid content in one dashboard, provides an easy way to analyse content. Using filter tools, sort and identify content based on how active each influencer is for your brand, both during and after a campaign. Use this data to track key KPIs across various campaigns and compare influencers content when the campaign was different. Use this to optimise and iterate future strategies.


Lack of internal content teams does not have to equal lack of content


Brands struggle to keep up with the costs and manpower needed to create content in-house. By using the content dashboard, leverage existing content from influencer collaborations. In our 2020 state of influencer marketing report, we found 72% of brands repurpose content on their own social channels.


Influencers are valuable throughout the entire marketing funnel but many brands don’t see the benefit of working with influencers as content creators or partners. Doing so means less emphasis on follower numbers or engagement and instead focus can shift towards creators’ brand affinity and quality of content.


Brands without an in-house photographer or a creative team can utilise content creators in this way. This acts as a resource to populate content calendars. First, though ensure you’ve established content usage rights with creators. Filter content by usage rights for a clear view of what access to content you have to seamlessly repurpose it within paid social ads, websites or on social platforms.


By easing the burden of creating original content, brands can focus on what they do best: building their business.
