Brand Report Analyzes Facebook Performance Of 20 Most Valuable UK Brands

quintly publishes insights on how most successful UK brands utilize Facebook.

Main findings: ITV, Marks and Spencer and BBC are the three most active UK brands on Facebook;  visual content 40 times more likely to be shared than other types of content; EE responds to 90.3% of consumer questions on Facebook.

Today quintly released their 2018 UK Brand Report, mainly focusing on Facebook data. Analyzing interactions, quintly finds out that the top 3 posts in 2018 are published by ITV and BBC and all being posted in video format.

Besides that, there’s a surprising finding regarding customer service on social media: most of the companies get a lot of (meaning more than 5,000 a year) user requests on social networks - in particular, companies like Sainsbury’s, Three UK and EE. Those companies also have a high overall response rate (over 85%). Yet not all of the 20 brands take advantage of the potential in this sector like e.g. MINI and Jaguar, who choose not to answer user requests at all on Facebook.

Identifying that customer orientated services receive the most questions is quite interesting because it underlines the importance of providing excellent customer service on social media. Yet, some brands don’t focus much on this area. I think that a different mindset in this regard would certainly improve the interaction with the audience of every company though.
