Axios HQ metrics and analytics

Metrics that matter

From open and click rates, to competitive benchmarks, track what your audience wants — and learn what keeps them engaged.

Powerful, insightful, actionable

Only 47% of communicators say their organization measures how effective their essential communications are. HQ has the tools you need to understand your readers and serve them better.

Smart data for smarter writers

The flywheel will start — not end — when you hit send.


Data will flow in real-time as your audience receives your HQ update. In 24 hours, an Edition Rundown will hit your inbox — a quick email summarizing opens, clicks, and other key metrics. 

When you're ready, click into HQ for the full data picture.


Over time, you'll build a data story about who is — or isn't — engaged at your org. One team might need a different send time. Another might be starving for more. The data will show where to check in.

Drill down in each update or look at long-term trends. 


Communications in any form should feel like a conversation. Start one. Ask your readers what they like, what they don't, and what they need more of. It will help you serve them better. 

1:1 conversations enhance 1:many communications.


Now take everything you've learned and digest it. Evolve your strategy. And when you are ready to send your next update, you can trust the track, ask, analyze steps that really do work. 

Your audience is changing. Your strategy should be, too.
