Trends Analytics

Analyzing your data

Revelator provides a complete set of tools to help you analyze and understand your data. Find out which artists and songs are most popular, where your fans are and which services they prefer to use to listen to your music.

Use the Revelator platform to track your revenue and analyze your data. You can view, for example, daily trends and monthly revenue reports.

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.

  • Daily Trends: The default modules shown are:

    • Total units by channels

    • Services

    • Streams

    • Downloads

    • Countries

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:

  • Labels

  • Artists

  • Releases

  • Tracks

  • Formats

  • Channels

  • Services

  • Countries

  • Cities

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 Revelator 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:

Hover your pointer over any data point to reveal the specific values represented at that point in time.

  1. Navigate to Analytics > Daily Trends in the left main menu. In the Daily Trends page, you can view analytics based on daily trends (not monthly revenue).

  2. You can view the information that some services provide about the streams/sales on their service for the specified range of dates. Use the date picker (on the upper right of the page) to select the period of interest (Last 7, 14, or 30 days, or specific date range). Click in any of the graphs, for example, Total units by channels, Services, Downloads, Countries, and so on, to toggle the data displayed.

  1. Use the Filters (at the top of the Daily Trends page) to filter the daily trend graphs by artist name, title, UPC/ISRC, service, and so on. You can also click on any area or text in the graph or related lists to filter the graph display.

  2. Only a few services provide daily trends. Click the Reports availability button to see which service's daily trends are available for your account, and which service's daily trends have been updated, or which may be missing. Filter the display by choosing an option from the drop-down list at the top of the Reports Availability page. For example, the following figure shows all available reports.

  1. To view all the related daily trend graphs, hover over the upper right corner of any of the trend graph, and click the View all link.

When you click the View all link, by default the All tab opens, displaying all data. Now you can view the trend graphs displaying data per label, artist, releases, tracks, and so on (as shown in the tabs above the graph). Click any of the other tabs, Downloads, Streams, Physical, or Publishing to display the relevant data. Click one of the graph type icons on the right side (circled in red below) to toggle the display as a line, stacked area, or bar graph.

For example, the following figure shows a stacked area trend graph per artists, per the last 30 days.

Select (or clear) the checkboxes below the graph to display in the graph (or remove from the graph) additional artists’ downloads and stream trends.
