The Numbers Game: New Statistics added to Spreaker’s CMS

2

We’ve got a mission to provide the most complete, all-in-one podcasting solution out there with our CMS. It’s a professional dashboard that covers editing, feeds, social media distribution, and monetization opportunities (amongst other things) so that you have greater control over your content. Now we’ve ticked one more thing off our list of features: introducing statistics to Spreaker’s CMS.

They’re easier to access, and now thanks to a beautiful new redesign, even easier to read. Plus we’ve added a few extra goodies while we were at it – you’ll have the key to unlocking your audience in no time.

Why statistics are important

The importance of understanding your statistics cannot be overstated. They offer you a complete reading of your listeners, like who they are and where they’re from. With that insight, you get a clear idea of your podcast’s progress and how to further develop your content; stats function as feedback, encouraging you to keep doing what you’re doing, or pushing you to experiment and improve your process.

Detailed statistics are also crucial data to report to ad agencies and sponsors if you’re looking to monetize your content (if that’s the route you want to take, of course – Spreaker offers an easier, more automatic revenue sharing program, too). Ad providers want to be able to match up products and the audiences they’ll be advertised to as best as possible, and the stats you provide should be leveraged accordingly (for example, they’ll want to be sure that the men’s shaving kits they’re pushing aren’t getting featured on children’s programming). It’s similar in approach to any other type of content monetization – even bloggers have to provide reports of their readership to their sponsors, because why place an ad on your page that isn’t likely to get read or paid attention to? With the help of detailed statistics, you’ll be able to show them the power of your podcast’s reach and the who, what, where, and why of your listeners with one go.

Planning Spreaker’s Next Generation Infrastructure

As you may know, at Spreaker we are huge fans of extreme automation. Actually, it goes beyond that: automation is essential to our existence. It’s the only way we can handle our operations efficiently while continuing to deliver features and services to our users, even with a small engineering team. This was one of the big reasons we had to be early cloud adopters, moving our entire infrastructure to AWS early on.
