If you are not someone who cares about how well your videos perform then stop reading now. If on the other hand you are one of those people that is using video on their site to promote something or are sending videos out into the wilds of the internet in the hope that they will be viewed by thousands of people before bringing you untold riches then read on.

The great promise about using online marketing is that you can measure the success or failure of your campaign and therefore optimise the content, placement, reach or frequency to maximise what it brings to you. I am sure that the vast majority of advertisers entrust these activities to their ad agencies who perform them diligently and therefore squeeze every last conversion from their advertising dollars. In the real world it can be hard to find time to make sure that everything is working or budget to re-edit a video or make sure that the video is in the right place with the right call to action. So if you are using video how can you measure, track and optimise this?

create engage convertEyeview Digital provide a platform to help companies to make and manage their videos and then provide detailed reports on how they’ve performed. This helps the site to test and tune their video to provide the best performance, how long is too long, male or female voiceovers, big flashing red arrows or the subtle approach.

In an ideal world this kind of testing would be happening anyway but Eyeview have a tool which will help sites to maximise the benefits of putting video on there in the first place. You can try their quiz here to see if you know it all already, I won’t reveal my score, I should have done better!

If you are in the business of releasing your videos into the wild and are curious to see where they perform best and what happens after people have seen them then Tubemogul may be able to help you out. They provide a simple system which lets you distribute your video across multiple channels with a single action and then tracks the success of that video. They gather the statistics from the video sites and provide you with graphs showing viewership, drop off over time, traffic sources and many others.

tubemogul traffic sourcesThis is especially important given the recent news that YouTube is planning on partnering more with video producers who publish viral content (Techcrunch write-up here). Traditionally this has been a no-go area for YouTube who have not wanted to sell advertising around amateur content that carries a higher risk of causing offence or being disrespectful to the brand. If you are a content producer and can now gain some financial reward for your work from YouTube then having another system to monitor the success of your video must be a good thing.

In the same way that the search marketing industry (SEO) required tools to control and monitor text ads across multiple search engines (frankly the need for this has decreased with the demise of several of the search engines) Tubemogul allows you to perform a similar function across multiple video sites.

Of course you could just carry on regardless and hope that your videos are being successful for you but wouldn’t you like the peace of mind that you are getting the most out of them that you can?
