Once your beautiful digital edition is published, you’ll want to understand how your readers consume your content. Analyzing your digital edition is essential for learning how your publication is performing. Are you attracting the right person? What path are they taking? Are you providing your audience the content they are looking for?
If you have struggled, or are currently struggling with analyzing your digital publication, you’re not alone. Furthermore, if you are using a publishing platform such as flipbook, you may not even have any data about your readers, or the data may not make any sense.
By analyzing these aspects of your digital publication, you’ll gain valuable insights into your current publication’s performance and can make business decisions that drive growth.
By continually learning and optimizing the process, you’ll grow your business and develop better pitches to your advertisers.
So, how can you get started? In this article, we share our best tips and tricks for analyzing your digital publication.
Google Analytics isn’t always enough.
While Google Analytics is an amazing and very powerful tool, it doesn’t always work seamlessly will flipbooks and long scroll pages.
We definitely recommend having Google Analytics for your publication to analyze some useful data, but you’ll need supplementary tools to get other data for your online publication.
Know and understand your digital publication’s numbers.
In order to grow a successful publication, you have to know and understand your digital publication’s numbers. It’s important to master your numbers and to understand what they mean and how to improve them.
For example, knowing your numbers will help advise your advertisers where they should be placing their ads and what type of ads to make their campaigns more effective to them and keep them reordering.
Your advertisers will ask what they can expect and how to improve their online campaigns, so it is imperative you understand how their campaigns are performing. If you don’t understand your current numbers, you won’t be able to provide your advertisers any feedback.
Add value for your advertisers.
You can help your advertisers further by providing reports on a regular basis. You can add recommendations so they can fully optimize their advertisements for your publishing network. This is a great opportunity to upsell your other advertising options. Not only will this help your advertiser grow his or her campaign, but you’ll grow your digital publication as well.
Furthermore, as you may know, digital and print advertising are two separate worlds. You’ll need to be able to explain to your advertisers how to properly optimize their advertisements for the digital world. At a very minimum, every digital advertisement needs a strong call to action and an eye-catching visual ad. These advertisements must be directed to a conversion focused landing page created for a particular campaign.
