Some data on a 100 day content project: listens

Followers of this blog have probably been wondering what has taken over the site for the past 100 days. The 100 Days of Bass project is a fun content experiment I’m running.

Initial listen data for the project regarding listening behavior of the audience

Data on listening is coming from Soundcloud’s analytics. I have a pro account so I get a little bit more than the free, but not as much as the premium account. Soundcloud’s tools and services for paid accounts are pretty miserable (entirely-Flash-driven miserable). But the data is interesting to consider so here it is.

100 Days of Bass Data April 7 to June 14, 2015

  • 4,482 listens
  • 199 downloads (does not require a Soundcloud account)
  • 51 likes (requires a Soundcloud account)
  • 7 comments (requires a Soundcloud account)

The interface tops out at 50 countries represented. The top six had more than 100 listens each, in order: United States (2,727), UK (529), France (234), Netherlands (143), Germany (118), Canada (105).

The listens were mostly stacked up at the beginning of the challenge, in April. Total listens per month sloped down from there. Likes were more evenly distributed month to month.

It will be interesting to see what, if any, long tail listens get generated now that the program is complete. I have a few more things to do in terms of “promoting” the content but probably by the end of the month these will all be complete and we can watch the passive phase of the content take over.
