Introduction

Whether you use YouTube for marketing purposes or to make money, one of the most important things you need to know is your audience. And to know and understand your audience, there’s no better tool than YouTube Analytics.

YouTube Analytics gives you useful information not only about your audience demographics such as their location, age and gender but also their behaviour. These behavioural metrics such as impressions click-through rate (CTR) and average view durations tell you helpful information about how your videos are perceived. For example, a high impressions CTR with a low average view duration is a good indication of your videos failing to meet viewers’ expectations.

It also shows you various other information like the total watch time, subscribers gained (or lost) during a particular period, keywords that attract the most viewers to your videos, etc.

These metrics are crucial if you want to create contents that are engaging and thus grow your subscriber base while retaining existing subscribers. However, information is just a raw material–having it won’t do you any good unless you put it to use.

How should you put them to use? Well, for one, you can have them in Google Sheets where you can dissect and analyse them or construct something with them.

Why import data from YouTube Analytics to Google Sheets

YouTube Analytics has plenty of information about your channel and your audience–and that’s a good thing. But this also makes it cumbersome and laborious to use. That’s why it’s not just convenient but more helpful if you have the data of your choice in Google Sheets.
