Endurance Sport Brands on Social – Data - Q4 2021

Endurance Sport Brands on Social – Data - Q4 2021




The new Endurance Sport Brands on Social summary report and dataset is an independent analysis of 700 endurance sport brands on social media, i.e. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube. It tracks a number of key metrics, such as each brand’s engagement and growth on social media.


Issued in January 2022, all data covers Q4 2021 (Oct 1 to Dec 31, 2021), a key period that included promotional activity during Halloween, Thanksgiving, Black Friday and the Christmas Holidays.


Purchasers gain exclusive access to three files: (1) Endurance Sport Brands on Social summary report;  (2) a main Endurance Sport Social Analytics (ESSA) datasheet; and (3) a datasheet showcasing top posts on social.


Why is this report important?

Over time, the use of social media has matured. Over a three year period, between Q4 2018 and Q4 2021, endurance brands have on average seen their engagement on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter drop.  


A fully-informed social media strategy backed by data is now more important than ever, as it gets harder for brands to build impact. Having built an audience, a brand may find it increasingly difficult to reach their audience. This may, for example, be due to the regular changes in the algorithms deployed by the major social media sites.


How can this report help?

There are two main ways for purchasers to use all data and insights to drive their own social activity forward:


  • Benchmarking - use the ESSA datasheet to track how your brand measures up on key performance indicators (KPIs) such as engagement and weekly growth.
  • Content evaluation - use the top posts datasheet to see first-hand what posts have resonated specifically with endurance sport athletes. Think of this as ‘standing on the shoulders of giants’ to help guide your own brand’s progress.


Data is used to help brands monitor, adapt and refine their activation in each of their preferred social channels.


Endurance Sport Brands on Social is priced at US$249. Purchase includes:


  • Comprehensive datasheet tracking all key performance indicators (KPIs)
