Most YouTube emails are insipid (not all of them, mind you). I just received this YouTube message from a fellow user a few minutes ago:
I am frequent YouTube watcher and a student at UC Berkeley. As part of a project for one of my classes, I have been working on a new product idea for YouTube film makers/posters like you. The product tracks the trends in your movie viewership over time – breaking your viewership down by day, week, and month.
I have just started the service and it is a bit rough, but functional. I would *really* appreciate it if you would be willing to try it out and provide feedback to me. Mostly your feedback will help a Berkeley student with his project, but if I feel the service is valuable to you I may consider further developing the product for public use.
The site is TubeMogul – it should only take a few minutes to run thru. After you take a look, I have set up a survey to collect comments and feedback. Itâ€™s only 10 questions and they are very short and to the point.
Took me no time at all to set up and complete – instantly seeing stats for some of my more popular videos on YouTube. Nice! Certainly better than anything I had before. If you’re a YouTube user, you might give TubeMogul a shake.
