As the world of marketing is moving towards customization and personalization, so is the media and entertainment industry. This industry is discarding the traditional method of creating content for the masses. The advent of network TV, DTH, and online streaming has revolutionized the media and entertainment industry as the content creators can figure out how many people and what kind of people are watching their content. Audience analytics is the prime reason why companies are eager to shift their media delivery platforms to gain audience insights and provide personalized content. Read on to learn about the importance of audience analytics in the media and entertainment industry to gain audience insights.

Understand Content Performance

Companies are using audience analytics to evaluate their content performance and create content that will be loved by the audience – and there is no better example of companies using audience insights than Netflix. Netflix performed audience analysis by processing massive data sets to determine whether their audience preferred the work of the director David Fincher. Additionally, it was also evident that movies featuring Kevin Spacey had always done well along with the British version of ‘House of Cards.’ Combining these three data sets, Netflix came up with the American version of ‘House of Cards’ directed by David Fincher, starring Kevin Spacey, which is already the most streamed content in the US and 40 other countries.

Content Personalization

The companies in the media and entertainment industry can identify consumption patterns of the audience to gain valuable audience insight regarding viewership, preferences, social media platforms used, and watching habits. Extensive knowledge on which audience is watching the content in what device along with the factors that motivate them to click or watch can prove to be valuable in marketing and programming strategies. Consequently, such data can be used to enhance and personalize their experience.
