How To Track Shoppable Video Performance on Shopify With Videowise

How To Track Shoppable Video Performance on Shopify With Videowise

So many eCommerce video marketers are limited by what they can "measure."

Traditional tools used to host and manage the videos on a Shopify website cannot track essential video engagement and conversion metrics.

Without this critical information, it can be challenging to determine the impact of your website videos.

This is where Videowise comes in.

You get an end-to-end platform to host, track and optimize your shoppable videos.

Key on-site shoppable video metrics and data you can track with Videowise: The what, the why, and the how?

At Videowise, we understand that there is no one right way to view and analyze your data. That's why we offer multiple ways to slice and dice the numbers to build a comprehensive understanding of your video marketing performance.

Intuitive data range picker in Videowise analytics

Note: Videowise offers off-site video analytics as well, but for this blog, we will focus on on-site video metrics.

1. Metrics by video

Videowise conversion report quick video walkthrough

First, let us go deep into video-focused metrics that will help paint a full feature of your on-site video marketing performance at both an aggregate and individual level.

Total direct on-site video sales (revenue)

Example of video conversions breakdown by direct and influenced sales

Your video content can generate two types of revenue for your business: direct and influenced revenue. When a shopper interacts with a shoppable video, adds an item to their cart from the video player interface, and completes the purchase within the same session, it is considered a direct sale.

This metric represents the sum of revenue generated from all these direct sales.

Direct sales revenue is the holy grail of on-site video marketing. A higher number indicates that your videos are compelling enough for visitors to take immediate action.
