Youtube Video Marketing Demographics Report
As mentioned earlier, demographics is one of the significant features offered by the Youtube analytics report. It tells you a couple of things about the viewers of your videos such as their age group and gender. Let’s say you are targeting female viewers that are in their midtwenties for your video online marketing campaign but demographics show that most of your viewers are men that are in their midthirties. It tells you that you have a problem with your tailored video content and the demographics report is an excellent resource that you can tap into to determine if you are actually expressing your message to your target viewers effectively.
Now if you find yourself in a similar predicament to the situation mentioned above, you have to improve your efforts at tailoring your content to captivate the attention of a particular gender or age group. Assess the manner in which you intend to present your message through your videos. This includes the pace, style and editing methods that you are implementing. Older audiences tend to favor videos of traditional presentation that are informative and slow paced as they generally have a longer attention span. Viewers of the younger generation generally prefer video content that is flashy, aesthetically focused and fast-paced.

This is important simply because your number of views, subscribers and likes is a solid indicator of your success and effectiveness in marketing with videos.
