Each category has different types of metrics you can access. The Updates tab allows you to view data such as the number of shares, comments, clicks, and impressions. The Visitors tab allows you to see the number of followers and non-followers viewing your page. Explore these options to determine which category offers the most valuable data for your goals.

If you run paid campaigns, you can export additional metrics through the LinkedIn Campaign Manager, including: Performance metrics. Delivery metrics. Engagement metrics. Sponsored messaging metrics.

LinkedIn offers more in-depth data such as CPM, conversions, and leads within each of these metric types.

Select the report type and the timeline breakdown. Finally, confirm the export. This will download the report to your computer as an Excel sheet.

7. Use exported data to analyze and interpret the performance of your LinkedIn account.

If your company is running a recruitment campaign, the Employee Advocacy data can help determine how effective employee recruitment efforts are and the types of engagements received on posts. This information can help determine whether employee advocacy is a valuable recruitment strategy. If, however, your company wants to increase followers, the Followers data can display information such as the current roles of people most interested in your company or the type of account activity that results in new followers. This data can help your business adapt its marketing strategies to appeal to potential followers.  Use all the data available to capture a holistic view of your account, or look at the engagement metrics of a single post. Depending on what your objective is, a more granular analysis can help identify areas that need improvement.
