Lies, damned lies, and Instagram statistics? The original quote was possibly associated with Mark Twain but nobody is really claiming it. He didn’t know about Instagram of course.
Got your attention? If you are using social media you need to know how well your postings are working and Instagram is no different to any other platform.
Iconosquare for your Instagram Statistics
Native Instagram really does not provide you with the statistics you can use to see how well your posts are working.
But not to worry there is a product called Iconosquare that not only helps you manage your Instagram account but helps you see what is going on by delivering a whole host of Instagram Statistics.
Above shows my home feed via Iconosquare. There is a lot you can do with Iconosquare and this article is just going to give you a taster. You can get a free account and just login using your Instagram account details.
Instagram Statistics – When are you posting?
When do you post, but more importantly when are your fans looking at your stuff?
Watch this short video and it will tell you more.

So now you know when your fans are looking at your stuff and you can posts to suit their schedule!
Since it is all about them, you can now change your posting habits to better serve your fans and get more engagement.
Instagram Statistics – How are your posts doing?
Which brings me to the other big subject how are your photo’s doing? Are people liking and commenting on them?
I hope you respond to comments you receive!
Iconosquare helps you with this by providing you with the statistics that brakes this down.
You can see from the above image the top Liked and Commented photos I have posted.
Interestingly, when it comes to comments two of the photo’s I reposted from others were in the top posts.
Make sure you give credit when you repost a photo. I use the Repost app which will automatically add the credit for you.
The video below shows you how you find these Instagram Statistics in Iconsquare.

In my top posts based on number of comments I had Ray Higdon who is an amazing marketer, speaker and training. You can always learn a ton from this guy.
The other was a post from my good friend Nicole Hanchi who is always posting great content, go check out her Instagram feed by clicking her name above.
