As well as monitoring, analytics is a must have for testing your ideas. Especially so if you use any paid media.

Testing can be done in an ad-hoc fashion by looking at your metrics and manually adjusting, but real insight can be drawn through the use or regression analysis. Regression analysis is a statistical technique that takes into account all the different factors, such as time of data, follower numbers, post history, content type and balances all of that to make a judgement about your content’s performance.

Did your post perform better because of the content itself, or because you posted it at peak hour on Monday? Only a regression analysis can reliably tell you the answer.

This can also be done for paid content, through what is called A/B testing. A/B testing formalises the statistical procedure into a proper test framework – we recommend this for anyone spending money on LinkedIn advertising.
