The Analytics solution provides an array of tools to understand download, playback and revenue trends over time
Family in Music provides a complete set of tools to help analyze and understand streaming and download data. Find out which songs or albums are most popular, where listeners are based and which services they prefer to access music.
Analytics includes the following sections:
- Daily Trends
- Revenue Analytics
Daily trends is a dynamic, comprehensive graph that allows you to view a wide amount of information about your assets across all connected services. View download and streaming quantities at the label, artist, or track level; compare them across channels and services, and find out which countries and even cities your fans are listening from. You can separate differences between streaming or downloads, and soon you’ll be able to include physical sales and publishing information too.
The default modules shown are:
- Total units by channels
From the main Analytics dashboard, click on any module to expand the details and view all the available information on the Daily Trends graph.
The current time period being displayed can be adjusted from the drop down menu above the graph. From the drop down menu, you may select:
- Last 7 days: Displays information for the previous 7 complete days.
- Last 14 days: Displays information for the previous 14 complete days.
- Last 30 days: Displays information for the previous 30 complete days.
- Choose dates: Using the calendar widget, choose a start from the left side and an end date from the right side. Click Apply to confirm your choice and view the graph using your selected dates.
Additionally, you may further narrow the view by dragging the left or right edges of the graph summary, immediately below the main graph. The remaining highlighted area may be moved left or right, and the graph above will reflect the selected area.
You can view daily trends sorted by any of the available tabs above the graph by simply clicking on them:
For each tab selected, streams or downloads will be graphed accordingly within the selected date range. Below the graph is a table detailing all available elements within the current graph view. To include or remove an item from the graph, check or uncheck the box to the left of the item in the table. Only the most popular items will be included initially.
Note: Click the blue “Reports Availability” button to find out which services have sent reports to Family in Music regarding any given day. Often, DSPs provide estimates that are not fully accurate until adjusted at the end of the month.
The graph compares activity between any item selected from the table below it. Each item is identified on the graph by the same color as the check mark beside it. On the right side of the daily trends graph, select from one of three graph types:
Line: Data points will be plotted on a continuous line.
Stacked area: Data points will be plotted on a continuous line and a matching solid color will be filled in below each line.
Clustered columns: Data points are displayed as columns, with the total height of the column representing the cumulative value of all items for that point in time.
Compare your monthly revenue over time using a dynamic, comprehensive graph. Like Daily Trends, view a wide amount of information about your assets across all connected services. View download and streaming numbers organized by label, artist, or track. Compare sales across channels, services, or by region at the country or even city level.
Use the Leaderboard to see how artists in your catalog are trending when comparing the current period to a previous period. By default, play counts will be displayed comparing the previous two complete quarters. Use the search bar and filters to focus only on the artists or values you want to view. You can also click on any column title to sort in ascending or descending order.
View a map of the world that displays where your listeners are. Compare sales across regions and see which artists, albums, or songs are most popular in any city or country. Use the search bar to find any combination of keywords you’d like to learn more about.
