Online Video Platform Summit Analytics Panel - Measuring Success

Without solid, performance-based metrics, there's no way to measure the success and ROI of your video content. The ability to measure video traffic beyond "views"-including audience dropoff, what sites and search terms are referring viewers, and audience geography-offers content publishers deeper insight into both the viewing habits of their audience and the extent of their video's reach. Panelists in this Online Video Platform Summit session will demonstrate video metrics in action and talk about what to measure, how to measure it, and how to turn those measurements into actionable business intelligence.
