Soundsgood 1.15.7: Stats For Your Playlists!
by Louis V.
Playlists drive millions of music streams, yet their creators have no data to improve them.
Playlists are now the beating heart of music listening. But while artists already have stats tools to know if they are being playlisted — playlist curators have nothing… Those days are now behind us:
Introducing Playlist Stats
We’re very happy to lay the foundation stone of Playlist Stats, the all-in-one-place dashboard to monitor your playlists performance. Just head to your Soundsgood account and click My Stats in the top navigation bar.
How to read your stats?
With Playlists Stats, you can measure how each playlist is received by your audience. The table shows their #Views, #Engagement and #Followers across streaming platforms. You can also check your overall stats with the top section.
VIEWS — The number of times people viewed your playlist, either on your website Embedded Player or directly on your Playlist Page. It does not account for all the people viewing your playlists directly on your streaming profiles as this information is not shared yet by streaming platforms.
ENGAGEMENT — The rate of engagement (Plays, Follows, Tracks Saved, etc.) on your playlist, either on your website Embedded Player or directly on your Playlist Page. It does not account for all the engagement directly on your streaming profiles as this information is not shared yet by streaming platforms.
FOLLOWERS — The total amount of playlist followers compiled from your streaming profiles. Hover the mouse on the counter to get detailed information for each streaming platform.
How to take action to improve your metrics?
Depending on your playlist type, you can work on different Key Performance Indicators:
FOR ONE-SHOT EDITORIAL PLAYLISTS — Your KPIs should be the #Views and #Engagement. They show you how much people enjoyed your playlist on your media channels. From that, you can work on improving your reach, or optimizing your playlists for a better engagement.
FOR WEEKLY/MONTHLY PLAYLISTS — You KPI should be the #Follower count. It’s the number of listeners who will get notified when you update your playlists. Don’t be shy, tell your audience to follow your playlist, re-share it whenever you add new tracks.
Will there be more stats in the future?
Yes! We will progressively add more stats to help you finetune your playlists for your specific audience. It should be Audience Insights (top countries, top devices, favorite streaming platforms) and Playlist Performance (skipped tracks, saved tracks, average listening time, etc.). We will also add evolution curves to follow your KPIs over time.
