Building a strong brand for your clients on Instagram doesn’t happen by chance. If you want to achieve better results and exceed yours or your client’s expectations, then you need a clear strategy.

Calculating adequate ROI from social media marketing is a daunting task, so a precise plan and a distinctive strategy is a must here.

And the best way to form your plan is by running an Instagram audit. An audit lets you check whether you or your clients are meeting their business and marketing goals, and maximising their Instagram marketing activities.

ROI in Instagram marketing

ROI or Return on Investment is the sum of Instagram actions that create value and bring you profit — content creation and hours spent on it, paid social costs, influencer marketing investments, etc. These actions strongly depend on your Instagram marketing objectives — brand awareness, traffic, conversions, leads, or sales.

If you want to calculate your ROI from a single Instagram campaign by revenue, you need to take total revenue you’ve got from the marketing investment, marketing investment itself and do simplified math:

ROI = (Revenue from the marketing investment — Marketing investment)/Marketing investment * 100

For instance, you spent $300 on paid social and influencers to promote your new book on Instagram. You tracked that customers who came from Instagram bought your book amounting to $2,500. It means that your ROI from this particular Instagram marketing campaign is 733%. In a similar fashion, you can also calculate the ROI of a single influencer’s performance or any other campaigns.

Your ROI will be calculated differently based on your campaign goals and KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) you set for it. If your goal is to make as many sales as possible, your potential KPIs should be impressions, reach, Click-trough rate, ER, Cost per Lead, Cost per Sale, site traffic, leads, conversions, revenue, and some others.

To track these parameters, you should use Google Analytics, Facebook manager ads reports, UTM to track traffic and unique landing pages created for each influencer participating in the campaign.
