The Demand Distribution curve illustrates how a TV show’s popularity compares to the demand benchmark, which is a measure of the average demand across all titles. The curve is divided into performance buckets, ranging from “Below Average” to “Exceptional”. A show falls into one of these performance buckets depending on how many times more or less demand it has compared to the demand benchmark.
The show’s performance is market-specific, e.g. the same show can be in the “Average” range in the United States and in the “Good” range in France.
As an example, if a show has 9 times more demand than the demand benchmark, it falls in the “Outstanding” performance range; only 2.7% of all shows in the market reach this high level of demand.
As an entertainment executive, you are constantly faced with the challenges of making informed content decisions that resonate with your target audience in order to drive engagement and revenue. In order to make confident decisions, you need to understand your target audience's preferences. By leveraging demand data, like that provided by Parrot Analytics, you can obtain unique insights into what your audience desires and identify opportunities to acquire, distribute or create content that will secure loyal viewership on your platform.
For instance, let's take the case of "The Night Agent," which has been analyzed based on its audience demand data in Canada in October 2023. This show has 3.2 times the audience demand of the average show in Canada. By comparing its demand in the last 30 days to the average demand over the last 90 days, we find that demand has been increasing recently. Thus, "The Night Agent" has a value that resonates strongly with audiences in Canada and presents an excellent opportunity to engage audiences with a thrilling storyline.
Parrot Analytics' metrics provide important insights for executives to make informed decisions about content. For example, the demand data for "The Night Agent" leads us to confirming the show as a successful drama in the genre, with audience demand in Canada higher than 96.0% of all drama titles in Canada. Also, the growing popularity of similar shows like "Ahsoka", "The Last Of Us", "Special Ops: Lioness", "Secret Invasion", "Silo", "Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan", "The Witcher", "House Of The Dragon" and "Foundation" gives an indication of which content to acquire, distribute or create next.
Furthermore, examining the top 10 markets globally, where "The Night Agent" is most in-demand, can reveal significant opportunities to grow revenue. The show has a very high demand in Russia, which is an area that can be exploited for further growth. By analyzing demand from different countries, executives can identify new territories for expansion and optimize their content investment strategies.
Demand data can also help executives to manage marketing efforts, release strategies, pricing, and overall growth. If executives discover an under-monetized show, they can easily find new potential markets for content distribution and place it in territories that show a growing demand to maximize the return on investment.
Finally, understanding demand data allows for informed decisions about which content to target for programming slots, thus, minimizing the risks and maximizing the ROI. Executives can optimize their acquisition decisions better with Parrot Analytics' content valuation system, which shows the dollar value contribution of any title, to any platform, in any region.
In summary, by utilizing Parrot Analytics' demand data, entertainment executives can make informed decisions concerning content valuation, acquisition, distribution, programming and marketing that will help drive engagement and grow revenue on their platforms. The audience demand data for "The Night Agent" in Canada in October 2023 provides an excellent example of how valuable demand data is for entertainment executives to make informed business decisions.
