In The Headlights: July 31, 2019 Issue

In The Headlights

Something we’ve been mulling over for this newsletter is whether there’s a good fit for some unique, regularly published data. Are there specific, repeatable, useful stats that would be handy to know? If so, what would they be? Just hit reply on this email to let us know what you might want to see regularly.

Not sure what that would look like? Maybe something like this:

Rear View Mirror Data

Based on the last week’s worth of data, the median engagement rate on YouTube for videos with more than 100 views was 4.39%. The median number of likes a video earned was 39; the median number of views was 981. We sampled this data from videos on YouTube using the social media software Talkwalker and custom-built code. The sample size was 33,595 posts.

Based on the last week’s worth of data, the median engagement rate on Instagram for brands on their paid/sponsored posts was 0.5%, The median engagement rate for unpaid/organic posts was 0.4%. We sampled this data from a list of 4,000 brand accounts on Instagram using the social media software Crowdtangle and custom-built code. The sample size was 31,739 posts.

What do you think? Anything else that would be a handy little bit of useful data you’d want to see week over week in this newsletter?
