Social Media Networks Performance (Engagement)
Through an analysis of The Sagg foundations social media networks, it was clear that their Instagram, Facebook and Twitter were heavily active, with content being uploaded on a daily basis. However although the frequency of posting on these platforms are positive, consumer behaviour towards them is actually negative. When looking at their Instagram and Facebook it is evident that there is a low engagement rate, with their Instagram page accumulating a total of one thousand six hundred and sixty followers but are only able to gain an average of under ten likes, not even converting 10% of their following to be active, this correlation is matched in their Facebook page as well. This means that their followers are inactive, as the Instagram page previously was averaging around 50 likes a year ago. The reasoning behind this inactivity of their followers could be due to their choice of recycling content, as the same piece of content will be uploaded to their Facebook, Instagram and Twitter all at the same time although they Sagg is trying to build brand awareness it is actually in turn losing audience retention due to their perception of their platforms as being lazy and repetitive, as each platform has their own rules, audience as well as algorithm that works best for them by using the same format won’t resonate the same way on each platform (Switch from cross-posting to cross-promoting | Signal, 2022). The audience retention is also quite negative, this is evident through their low amount of comments per post on all platforms. The Sagg foundation is currently not active on Youtube and in turn their engagement levels are low which is to be expected. In terms of their Blog, the foundation posts quite consistently, on a monthly basis which is understandable as the blog posts are long form content, but their engagement on the blogs is once again very low with most blog posts gaining 0 comments. This lack of engagement is due to the difficulty in navigating to find the blog, the blog can only be found and is only ever mentioned once and that is on their website, they do not publicies the blog at all on any of their social media platforms, making it hard for some consumers to even be aware that the blog exists.
Instagram and Facebook demographics
Demographics based on Age & Gender:
It is clear that the company’s Facebook page appeals mainly to the demographics of males and females of the ages 25-44. With males accounting for 4.6% more of the overall audience. In terms of Instagram their main age demographics are exactly the same, however the huge difference comes in the gender of Instagrams audience with Women accounting for 45.8% more of the company’s audience on Instagram.

Social Media Goals & Recommendations
- Social Media Goals
- Post quality over quantity in order to allow posts to resonate with the audience, posting several times a day will oversaturate the audiences feed and in turn cause frustration
- Although Sagg has posted a few Instagram Reels, it is very important that the use of reels is implemented as in October 2020 through a study by statista it was found that 61% of the worldwide millennials and generation z viewing video content on their phone watched for 1 minute or less (Daily mobile video consumption by video length worldwide | Statista 2020)
- Use keywords on Youtube videos in order to improve SEO, as currently according to ‘keywordseverywhere’ Sagg’s videos do not contain key words except for the first video they posted, this video continues to be both their highest viewed video as well as highest optimization score, all other videos averaging an optimization score of below 10/100.
- Lower the rate of crossposting (Recycled Posts) instead switch to cross promotion
- Start using Youtube actively as it will increase transparency of the brand through taking the viewer on a journey as to how operations run and the impact they have, building a deeper relationship with the audience
- Start using Tik Tok as it is the biggest social media platform at the moment, this will allow the charity to tap into a new audience
- Regain inactive followers retention through user interactive content through posts and stories
Examples of content recommendations
Social media Image Post example: By posting content that includes adverbs such as “How” and “Why” in conjunction is an effective method of hooking the audience and in turn allowing them to take action.
Infographic Poster: Infographics can be an effective way to provide long forms of information while also being able to maintain user engagement through eye catching graphics that act as a navigation system leading the user on.
