Compare you digital revenues with The Guardian's? Presentation Transcript

  • 1. How does your site’saverage revenue per unique user compare with The Guardian’s?
    François Nel/ @francoisnel / forthemedia.blogspot.com
    and some notes on how to do the calculations
  • 2. 2
    To calculate your ARPU rate per month, divide the average monthly income from your site by the average number of unique users.
    Example: If your site averages 150,000 unique users per month and your average income from your site is £50,000, your ARPU rate will be 50,000 / 150,000 = 33.3 pence per month.
    Your annual ARPU rate would be 12 X 33.3p = £4.14.

    What’s yourAverage Revenue Per User(ARPU) based on the latest figures you have?
  • 3. 3
    “Across the Group, a consistent theme has been the growth of our digital businesses. With Group-wide digital revenues (including 50.1% of Trader Media Group) in the last year increasing by 36% to reach £85.1 million (2007 £62.5 million) and average monthly unique users climbing by 32% to 24.2
    million (2007 18.4 million), we are no longer a predominantly print based operation but a true multimedia organisation…”
    Guardian Media Group Annual Report 2008
  • 4. 4
    £85,1m users / 12months = £7,091,167 per month
    / 24,2m monthly users = monthly ARPU 0.099 or about 10p per month.
    The annual ARPU rate 12 X £0.099p = £1.19
    Calculation the Guardian media Group’s annual revenue per user based on figures in the 2008 Annual Report
