Top 5 Instagram Analytics Tools to Uplift Your Business


provides third-party analytics for Instagram. It grew out of the platform HypeFactory in 2017, when the company decided to focus on its strengths - data and analytics.

HypeAuditor is a vast database powered by artificial intelligence that’s indexed nearly 3 million Instagram profiles so far.

It works on a Pay-As-You-Go model, with no subscription required. You buy tokens and spend them influencer reports, with each report costing you a token. Although you pay $30 per report if you buy less than 10, the rate decreases the more you purchase.

The key analytic that HypeAuditor provides about every influencer is their Audience Quality Score for Instagram. This is a 1 to 100 metric which consists of three components:

  • Engagement Rate
  • Authentic Engagement
  • Followers Reachability

The Audience Quality Score uses AI to detect cheating and sporadic followers. Any influencer with a score over 70 should be someone that you can feel comfortable about working with.

Iconsquare provides you with analytics relating to your community, content, engagement, reach, profile activity, page performance, Instagram Stories performance, and hashtags.

is the free analytics tool Instagram provides to any user who converts to a business profile.

You will notice a graph icon in the upper-right section of your profile. Click on this to access your Instagram insights. This will show you essential insights into how your Instagram account performs.

At the top of the page, you will see total impressions and the change from the previous week. You can swipe through this summary section to find other key metrics:

  • Reach for the account
  • Profile views
  • Website clicks
  • Call clicks/email clicks

Further down the page is the Top Posts section. This shows you your top six posts from the last week, based on impressions. You can tap on “See More” to view additional detail and to adjust your filters to cover a more extended time period and a different range of metrics (impressions, reach, engagement, likes, comments, views).

If you are interested in discovering detailed statistics about a particular post you can find that by tapping View Insights on the post in question.

The next section of your Instagram Insights Screen is labeled Stories and gives insights on your Instagram Stories. You can alter filters for the time period you wish to analyze (up to 14 days), along with the metrics that interest you (impressions, reach, exits or replies).

The following section analyzes your Followers. It shows the average duration that your followers are on Instagram at the current time of the week, and you can also discover:

  • Follower count
  • Gender distribution
