Measuring Success and Areas For Improvement for your Interactive Videos

An essential tool for businesses and content creators, video analytics for interactive video allows marketing and HR departments to understand viewer behaviour and optimise their content.

Here's a breakdown of the features and benefits:

Viewer Engagement Metrics

Track how long viewers are engaged with your video, pinpointing areas where they are most engaged as well as where attention is dropping off. By identifying and improving areas where viewers aren't engaging, you make necessary adjustments to provide a more relevant and user-friendly experience.

Click-through Rates (CTR)

Measure the effectiveness of embedded calls-to-action or interactive element, for example, the number of viewers who click through to a product or make a purchase page. By understanding which elements drive conversions, you can focus your resources on what's most likely to provide a healthy return on investment.

Interaction Heatmaps

Visual representations show where viewers most frequently interact. This can help to identify hotspots, interest or engagement.

Drop-off Rates

Monitor at which point viewers stop watching, helping identify areas where you can amend the edit or raise production levels in future. 'Path Analysis' allows you to understand the choices viewers make within an interactive video, identifying popular decision points or learning pathways.

Device and Browser Metrics

Determine which devices and on which browsers audiences are viewing your interactive content, ensuring optimal performance across all platforms. Before issues escalate, analytics can identify technical problems, for example, if a video doesn't play well on a particular browser.

Demographic Insights

Gain a deeper understanding of your audience’s preferences, behaviours, and demographics by collecting data on your viewers location, age, gender and other metrics. This allows you to better understand your target audience and tailor future content to their needs. Understanding what’s working and what isn’t, allows for iterative improvements to be made, based on real viewer data.

Feedback Collection

Integrated polls or surveys can provide direct feedback and corresponding analytics. Understanding what’s working and what isn’t, allows for iterative improvements to be made, based on real viewer data. Immediate insights from embedded  surveys or polls allow businesses to swiftly respond to viewer feedback, encouraging a stronger relationship between the viewers and your brand.

Social Sharing Metrics

Track where, and how often, your video is being shared on social platforms. Beyond simple view count, interactive video analytics offer multifaceted metrics that provide a clearer indication of a video's success.

Conversion Tracking

If your interactive video has a specific goal (e.g. sign-ups or sales), this feature tracks how many viewers completed that desired action.
