After you’ve shared your Soapbox with someone you’ll have some activity on that video in no time! Soapbox now gives you the ability to see more details on how viewers are interacting with your recordings.
The Activity feed will show a stream of viewing sessions for all videos, while the Performance page will show aggregate numbers for engagement and plays across all your videos. You can also enable Alerts to be notified when someone watches a Soapbox you’ve shared.
Activity contains a real-time feed of all viewing sessions for your Soapbox videos. Each entry on the activity feed represents one viewing session on a video, so you can see the date and time it was watched, as well as a snapshot of the viewer’s engagement.
You’ll see the video’s thumbnail and title for each entry, as well as two specific activities in relation to Soapbox activity:
- Percentage Watched
- Call-to-Action Clicks
Inside your activity feed you’ll see a few possible states for sessions in your Activity Feed. If the video has a call to action at the end, it will either show a “🔗” to indicate a CTA was present but not clicked, or a “✅” to indicate a successful CTA conversion. If neither of these icons appear, the video does not have a CTA.
Here are some examples of different states you can see on the activity feed:
The Performance page is your go-to resource for top-level statistics on Soapbox videos. You can see a snapshot of viewer engagement across all the videos within your Soapbox account, segmented over Last 7 Days or All-time.
Performance is broken down into three main statistics:
- Videos Watched - Percentage of videos that were watched at least once
- Average Engagement - Percentage of each video watched, on average
- Conversion Rate - Percentage of videos with CTAs that were clicked
Next to these percentages you’ll also be able to see some totals for your account:
- Videos Created
- Videos Watched
- CTA Conversions
Beneath these account-wide stats you’ll also be able to see a breakdown of each Soapbox video recorded on your account, as well as the total Plays, Average Engagement, and total Conversions for each.
You can also enable push notifications for activity in your Soapbox account. Either from your Activity Feed or your Account Settings you can enable push notifications for views of your Soapbox videos.
When you enable push notifications, views on your videos will look something like this on Mac OS X when you’re using Chrome:
Most versions of Safari do not support these notifications, but future versions may. Your experience with different browsers and notifications will vary based on the specifics for how their native notifications work, so keep that in mind!
If you decide that you don’t want desktop notifications anymore, the option to disable them is found in your Account Settings. You can re-enable them at any time.
