  2. 2. TouchstormVideoIndex™ poweredbytheYouTubeGenomeProject 2 About This Special Report It’s no longer enough to put out a great magazine issue after issue. The pressure to compete within the digital media landscape requires that a successful Editor-in-Chief be a marketer, an analyst, and a social media guru. There are tablet and mobile apps to be built, and multiple platforms to adapt to. YouTube is just another piece of the pie; one you might consider leaving off your already full plate. But you shouldn’t. When compared with the technical challenges you’ll face from the rest of digital, YouTube is an easy solution. As long as you do it right. Our in-depth analysis reveals who is doing it right, and who isn’t (yet) based on the metrics that matter which combine data from the YouTube API with custom-appended data to showcase insights available nowhere else.

  4. 4. 4TouchstormVideoIndex™ poweredbytheYouTubeGenomeProject Is there a more challenging place to work in media right now than in magazines? Print sales falling. Platforms exploding. Endless technical challenges. More content variations required. The constant threat of advertiser pullbacks. Digital offerings not mature enough to make up for lost print revenues. Data challenges. Readers migrating to a tiny mobile screen. With every new opportunity, journalistic integrity on the line. Too much work, too little time. Now Mark Zuckerberg says have I got a deal for you. Should you exchange control for eyeballs? The decisions to be made while traveling at light speed could steer your company into digital dominance and dollars. Or, the opposite. Talk about pressure. And, you still have a magazine to put out every month.   TouchstormVideoIndex™ poweredbytheYouTubeGenomeProject

No wonder the results of this study indicate that the vast majority of magazine publishers have decided YouTube is just another piece of the pie; one they’ve decided to leave off their already full plate.   TouchstormVideoIndex™ poweredbytheYouTubeGenomeProject

TouchstormVideoIndex™ poweredbytheYouTubeGenomeProject 7TouchstormVideoIndex™x™TouchstormVideoIndex YouTubeGenomeProjecteGenome 7poweredbythe A handful of magazines, however, are doing a great job on YouTube. This report will show you who they are, and where they’re excelling. If your title is not one of those, we suggest paying attention. You have a lot to accomplish and limited tools to do so. YouTube offers one of the easiest, fastest, most measurable and least complicated roads to success… Especially if you’re already making video, as so many publishers are.   TouchstormVideoIndex™ poweredbytheYouTubeGenomeProjectpoweredbythe
  8. 8. TouchstormVideoIndex™ poweredbytheYouTubeGenomeProject 8 Compensating for lost print earnings with your wired media revenues isn’t easy. Studies show that for the average magazine, only 4% of revenues come from digital. Imagine if your YouTube efforts could double that, to 8%, after only one year of working to market content there. We’ve run the numbers for a wide variety of magazines; accomplishing this is a distinct possibility for many. Don’t be put off by the paltry ~$2eCPM that comes from putting pre-roll on your video content. Once you have audience, there are specific things you can do to turn those eyeballs into meaningful revenue. Ask us how. YOUTUBE IS A DIRECT LINE TO MULTIPLE FORMS OF DIGITAL REVENUE Compared to the other projects on your To Do List, YouTube is real simple. No technical challenges. If you’ve already been making video, no content challenges. Winning on YouTube requires doing two things well: Making the Right Content and Marketing the Content Right. If you’re already making content, you can outsource the channel management/marketing to a company that knows the fastest path to success… at prices that will still yield a terrific ROI. YOUTUBE IS MANAGEABLE Chances are, your magazine’s success has already proven that it pulls big numbers on YouTube. Take a look at your YouTube competition. Not your fellow magazines, but other channels address the same subject matter. If you’re a kayaking publication, look at the YouTubers who are talking about kayaking. If you’re a parenting publication, look at the others talking about parenting. (Touchstorm.com gives you free tools to do that). For almost every magazine category — even Business & Politics — the audiences achieved are gigantic in comparison to what the magazines are pulling in. Enter your magazine, making a serious effort on YouTube. You have advantages others don’t. You’re already recognized as an expert in the field. You have access to some of the juiciest topics. You know how to curate well. You’re not hawking a product. You authentically love the same things the audience loves. You’re in the perfect position to play with big boys, building audiences that can compete and overtake them. YOUR MAGAZINE CAN WIN BIG ON YOUTUBE   Some people think YouTube competes with their brand.com. It doesn’t. Just the opposite — it’s like a free advertising billboard for it. As successful YouTubers have demonstrated, once you build an earned audience, you pull them over to your other platforms with the right messaging and incentives. YouTube gets more eyeballs on your content, and many of those new viewers won’t be your current devoted fans. That expanded, digitally oriented consumer that uses YouTube as his or her television is important to find. Use YouTube to grow the audience for your mainstay digital efforts. YOUTUBE IS FREE ADVERTISING TO GROW YOUR BRAND’S AUDIENCE TouchstormVideoIndex™ poweredbytheYouTubeGenomeProject
