    Creator Report

    Posts by Creator

    Components viewable under the Creator Report include: 

    • Followers: For blogs, this is the total number of unique monthly visitors (UMVs) and the information is pulled from Google Analytics. For other social platforms, it is the total number of followers or subscribers, and the information is pulled from the API of the platform used; except for Instagram, where the information is pulled from the Connection itself and only if it is an Instagram Creator or Instagram Business account.This number is collected at the time of Publish (when Influencers submit their links into the system to mark their posts as complete).

    • Views: This is the combination of blog views/visits, YouTube video views, and Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest impressions. For blogs, this information is pulled from Google Analytics, For all other social platforms, this information is pulled from the API of that platform. For Instagram, we have the capability to gather impressions only if:

      • The Influencer has an Instagram Business or Instagram Creator account prior to creating a post and prior to publishing their post (submitting their link) in the system.

      • The Influencer has a Facebook Page prior to creating a post and prior to publishing their post (submitting their link) in the system.

    • Engagements: Depending on the social platform used, these may vary. Engagements include the sum of likes, positive reactions, comments, shares, clicks, retweets, and close-ups (when applicable) from Influencer posts. For blogs, this information is pulled from Google Analytics and different APIs (for blog post shares, it is also pulled from the API of the platform it was shared). For all other social platforms, this information is pulled from the API of that platform, except for Instagram, which pulls information from the Connection itself and only if it is an Instagram Creator or Instagram Business account. Clicks are the only Engagement that are tracked from an internal tracking service using shortened links, with the exception of Facebook which pulls from the Facebook API, and Instagram Stories which is reported manually by the Influencer at time of Publish (where they submit their Story Metrics screenshots for Marketer approval).
