YouTube Adds New Analytics Options to Provide More Context on Memberships, Revenue and More

Published

on

YouTube has added a range of new analytics tools to help provide creators with more insight on the performance of their uploads, channel membership growth, specific revenue impacts, and more.

First up is new Members’ insights, which displays total and active members over your chosen time period.

Important to note that this is paying members via Channel Memberships, not channel subscribers, who follow your channel, but watch your videos for free. Channel memberships enable viewers to join your channel through monthly payments and get members-only perks “like badges, emoji, and other goods”.

As explained by YouTube:

“When creators come to us and talk to us about memberships, what they typically ask is ‘how do my memberships evolve over time?’, ‘which of my videos helped me win or lose more members than usual?’, and the third is ‘does it help if I remind my audience to become paying member?’”

This new graph will help to answer these questions, with more in-depth insight into membership activity.

You can also look up data on total, active, gained and lost members over time, which will provide further info on how your efforts to increase members are going, or how each of your uploads impacts your member count.

YouTube’s also making its ‘Other Channels Your Audience Watches’ and ‘Other Videos Your Audience Watches’ listings available on mobile. Both of these listings are currently available on desktop, but will now also be available in the ‘Audience’ tab on mobile as well.

It’s also making its video performance explanation more visible in Analytics on desktop.

YouTube analytics update

As you can see here, channel managers will now see up front explanations about the presented data, which should provide more context to help manage your content.

YouTube is also adding more insights on revenue changes, highlighting potential shifts by viewer region.

As explained by YouTube:

“If revenue is going up, or down, because of the fact that the audience has shifted to a higher or lower CPM country, we’re calling this out.”

Variable tax laws and processes mean different impacts for YouTube revenue, and in order to provide more transparency around such impacts, YouTube is now looking to provide more specific data on regional impacts in your process.

And finally, YouTube has added a new post engagement metrics display, which shows votes and likes on the channel’s top posts over the last 28 days.

The new options are mostly tweaks, and refinements on the available tools, but they will help to provide more specific context on YouTube channel performance, and how you can angle your strategy to align with key shifts.

How you utilize each element in your approach will come down to your analysis of the numbers, and what you’re trying to achieve, but more data can only help in mapping out a better strategy to improve your video performance.

Pinterest Launches Pin Ads in Argentina, Colombia and Chile

Pinterest Launches Pin Ads in Argentina, Colombia and Chile

As it continues to expand its ad offering, in order to maximize its business opportunities, Pinterest has today announced that Pin Ads will now be made available to all businesses in Argentina, Colombia and Chile.

As explained by Pinterest:

“Businesses of all sizes now have access to multiple types of ad formats and targeting options in Argentina, Colombia and Chile, to reach new audiences with meaningful, useful content as they discover ideas and plan new projects.”

Pinterest says that it recently launched its first ads with a small group of early partner brands in these regions, including Tiendas Paris and Publicis Groupe, which has paved the way for today’s full market expansion.

The announcement is the latest in Pinterest’s growing Latin American business push, with Pinterest Ads also made available in Brazil and Mexico last year. The app reaches around 80 million active users per month in the region – over 18% of its total user base – which represents significant opportunity, and highlights the expansion potential that Pinterest still has in this respect.

Further to this, Pinterest also launched ads in Japan just last month, enabling businesses to reach another 8.7 million active Pinners.

It’s somewhat surprising to consider the extended reach that Pinterest is still yet to achieve with its ads business, and how that could translate to more revenue for the company – and with the platform also warning of ongoing revenue pressures throughout 2022, and its overall user base in flux to some degree, it needs to tap into these expanded markets to boost its potential and showcases its value to investors.

Maybe that will be the remit of incoming Pin CEO Bill Ready, who took over from Ben Silbermann last week. The platform has been on a roller coaster ride throughout the pandemic, with usage reaching new highs, then normalizing once again, which has left many unsure what the future holds for the app. Ready, a former Google commerce chief, will now be tasked with stabilizing the ship, and maximizing performance – and you would assume that this would include a significant expansion of its ad business to facilitate more opportunity.

In selling its new Latin American expansion, Pinterest also reiterates that 97% of the top searches in the app are unbranded, and consist of 2-3 word queries, which makes Pinterest an effective tool to reach people while they’re still considering their next purchase.

“Pinterest is one of the rare platforms where it is truly possible for brands to engage with new customers who are intentional, open and making buying decisions.”

There is opportunity in Pins, for sure, and the addition of a Google insider should help to advance its discovery ambitions in this respect.
