How to Use LinkedIn’s Competitor Analytics Dashboard

If you’re not using LinkedIn’s Competitor Analytics Dashboard to identify growth opportunities for your company pages, you’re missing out. Here’s how to get started:

  1. Choose Competitors to Follow. Add your list of up to 9 relevant competitor businesses—at your level or beyond—to the dashboard.
  2. Compare Audience Size and Growth Rate. Use follower metrics to quickly identify which competitor is growing fastest and where you fit in the mix.
  3. Reverse-Engineer Page Growth. Do some digging to discover the driver behind a page’s growth by visiting the company page, scrolling its top-ranked posts, viewing its ads, and browsing its associated thought leaders.
  4. Check Competitor Highlights. This panel shows two metrics: total posts and engagement rate, giving you a percentage for how you compared to competition.
  5. Compare Organic Content Metrics. See how your company page compares to others in terms of reactions, comments, and reposts across time periods.
  6. Review Competitor Content. Take note of the content on a competitor’s page, such as the type, post format, and call to action on their top posts. Read the comments for customer sentiment and company responses.
  7. Chart Competitor Analytics Over Time. Export data from the dashboard to track and report on growth over an extended period of time.
