Engaging individuals regularly in your employee advocacy program is pivotal to its success. In fact, reports show that 60 percent of companies credit their active advocacy programs with attracting new business. To keep employees engaged and active in your program, curating great content and sending emails to draw your team in isn’t enough. Measuring the effectiveness of these tactics provides the insight you need to increase and optimize engagement, which can ultimately lead to more business.

Today, we’re excited to introduce the Distribution Report – the newest addition to the Bambu reporting suite. This report empowers program admins to go beyond social by analyzing data to uncover the effectiveness of email distribution within your advocacy program and how that impacts engagement. The Distribution Report displays open, click and social share data for emails – and the content therein – sent from Bambu.
