Eric T. Peterson on objectives, definitions and emerging KPIs
New white paper explores metrics for online video

Amsterdam, 25 February 2008 – Nedstat announces the publication of ‘Measuring Multimedia Content in a Web 2.0 World’, a white paper authored by Eric T. Peterson of Web Analytics Demystified and co-authored by Michiel Berger, Chief Innovations at Nedstat.

The study explores the emerging direct measurement model for multimedia content by examining several common business cases for deploying video. It provides a new set of definitions and key performance indicators (KPIs) designed to help companies effectively track their investment in video based content.

“The three primary business objectives for multimedia content on the Internet are to sell advertising, to promote viral marketing and to drive visitor engagement”, says Eric Peterson. “Marketers must look for standards and best practices to monitor and evaluate the success of these objectives. As the clear frontrunner in video analytics with Stream Sense™, Nedstat was the ideal partner to co-author this study with.”

Michiel Berger: “The popularity of online video is explosive and the readiness of organizations to shift major advertising spend to this channel will continue to grow at high speed. With Stream Sense™ we provide a wide range of metrics about video stream usage like click behaviour during advertising messages. Eric’s paper adds a wonderful framework for marketing professionals to put these to use effectively.”

The white paper ‘Measuring Multimedia Content in a Web 2.0 World’ is freely available as a download at www.nedstat.co.uk/publications and at blog.sitestat.com.
