Main KPIs

View this profile’s main KPIs at the top of their page. These are the metrics that indicate the reach and popularity of their channel: 

  • Number of subscribers 
  • Engagement - interactions divided by followers x 100.
  • Earned Media Rate - the equivalent advertising value of a post (learn more about this metric here). 
  • Average interactions - the average number of likes and comments on recent videos. 
  • Follower quality - see how many followers are real people and how many are bots or inactive accounts.
  • Average activity split - how many interactions can be attributed to likes, video views, and comments.
  • Engagement rate scale - this is the engagement rate displayed visually in comparison to the average influencer. In the example below, we can see that this influencer has a higher than average rate.

Tip: It’s unlikely for any profile to have 100% quality followers – generally anything over 80% is considered to be a healthy number. Read all about this metric here

Profile Evolution

See how this profile has changed over time to get an idea of if an influencer is up and coming or losing steam. This influencer shows a gradual increase in followers and has received more views in the past 3 months.

Sharp decreases in likes or followers could indicate that an influencer has done something unpopular and is suffering from backlash.

Audience Lookalikes

These 30 influencers have been identified as having the same follower demographics as your YouTuber. For example, maybe your influencer posts content related to style and clothing, while an influencer from this list posts content related to makeup and beauty. While their actual content may be different, they attract followers with similar demographics. This is a good way to find different influencers without losing sight of your target demographic.
