IDENTIFY AND DEFINE YOUR TARGET MARKETS WITH A UNIQUE SOURCE
Illegal file sharing is quite rightly seen as a threat to creative industries. The unauthorized distribution of movies, TV shows, music, e-books, games, and software threatens income and stifles creativity, as future funding is put in jeopardy. However, data analytics have shown that file sharing data can also be leveraged to provide powerful market insights.
HOW CAN FILE SHARING DATA HELP YOU TO ANALYZE TARGET MARKETS
P2P FILE SHARING ACTIVITY REFLECTS CONSUMER BEHAVIOR
File sharing data gives important market insight into target markets in an environment not everyone knows or understands. P2P file sharing activity can be leveraged in a unique way. Consumer behavior data is available for countries or regions in which content has not yet been officially released but is already being consumed. You can find out in advance what will be popular in which market. Plan your distribution deals and release windows to concentrate on countries or regions that offer the highest potential.
TOOLS THAT PROVIDE YOU WITH INSIGHTS INTO YOUR TARGET MARKET
TECXIPIO’s range of file sharing data products and solutions gives valuable insight into consumer behavior and their content consumption in one or more countries, regions or cities.

IDENTIFY THE MOST POPULAR CONTENT IN YOUR TARGET MARKETS AND REVEAL LOCAL DIFFERENCES
It is sometimes difficult to get up-to-date market data on reactions to new shows or breakout formats. Traditional market analysis based on audience figures, box-office revenue, or Blu-Ray/DVD sales numbers can take time and may not be publicly available due to its commercial sensitivity. Identifying the most pirated show in your target markets or during a particular time period is vital information that helps content providers react quickly to audiences’ current consumption habits.
THREE STEPS TO MAKING MORE INFORMED BUSINESS DECISIONS
1. EASILY GENERATE A TOP LIST OF MOST POPULAR CONTENT
The Top-list functionality of TECXIPIO’s Piracy Insights Creator (PIC) shows how well your and your competitor’s content is performing. The PIC is an easy-to-use, web-based portal that allows studios, TV networks, or distributors to quickly identify the most pirated movie, TV shows, or recording artist on P2P file sharing networks.

2. IDENTIFY THE MOST PIRATED CONTENT
By analyzing P2P file sharing activity, you can quickly see the Top 10, 25, 50 or 100 most pirated shows, movies, or music artists in any given region during any given time period. Piracy statistics are collected on all content so you can gain unique insight into how your competitors are performing. Finding out what genre, movie, TV show, or recording artist is most popular with audiences allows you to adjust release windows for new content, thereby maximizing revenues. Armed with the knowledge of what is the most pirated show or movie in key markets or with key US demographics, you can develop new, related content to legitimately satisfy audience demand.
3. GET INSIGHTS INTO YOUR TARGET MARKETS
Content acquisition is always a balance of gut feeling and hard facts. We can’t help with the gut feeling, but the hard facts on the most popular content are out there. Knowing the most pirated titles or music artists is a good way of understanding target markets and what is going to be the most popular content. Predict how future content may perform and who it will be popular with so you can retain current audiences and attract new subscribers.

ANALYZE YOUR TARGET MARKETS AND UNDERSTAND CONSUMER BEHAVIOR
File sharing statistics take consumer behavior analysis to the next level. Cross-consumption patterns can also be created across media – you not only know what other movies or TV shows a consumer likes, but their favorite recording artist, what games they play, and which e-books they read.

WHAT ARE USE CASES OF CROSS-CONSUMPTION REPORTS?
TARGET THE RIGHT AUDIENCE THANKS TO MARKET INSIGHTS
Gaining insights on target markets helps to increase satisfaction rates and retain customers. See cross-consumption levels so you know that fans of a TV series will be interested in a new movie release. Targeted advertising and promotional activity around the right programming will create interest and a pre-release buzz that reach far beyond your original target demographic. Having such market insights is of particular interest to VOD providers who can provide optimized content to trigger new subscriptions.
IDENTIFY CROSS-CONSUMPTION PATTERNS ACROSS MEDIA
By identifying individual user types, content providers can easily see cross-consumption patterns. You know that a group of consumers who downloaded a particular movie also downloaded certain TV shows or other movies. This consumer behavior is of particular interest to studios and networks so they can run cross-promotional advertising during the right programming, maximizing interest and advertising response rates. For VOD providers, developing an optimized portfolio of popular content triggers new subscriptions. Relevant cross-content recommendations based on reliable consumer behavior data increases customer satisfaction and ultimately retains subscribers.
WHO BENEFITS FROM TARGET MARKET INSIGHTS BASED ON FILE SHARING STATISTICS?
CONTENT PROVIDERS DISCOVER NEW TARGET MARKETS
Content providers now have a powerful tool to plan effective market expansion and to optimize sales strategies:

Thanks to tailor-made trend reports, broadcasters and distributors can leverage the popularity of movies, TV series and music to maximize revenues.

Based on detailed trend reports, original content producers can expand into untapped markets by making content available to consumers through convenient, legitimate on-demand or subscription services.
VOD providers can plan their acquisition of new, yet untried content with an analysis of trend reports across a range of movies and TV shows. Identify the shows that are popular and attract new subscribers.
TV networks cross-reference consumption levels with demographic data from the US census to ensure highly targeted audiences for their advertisers. Thanks to trend reports, they can prove a specific audience that already loves the content and will watch in high numbers.
Distributors can easily identify popular movies with no distribution deal in their home market by analyzing trend reports on movie file sharing activity.
In the music world, trend reports identify where an artist is gaining popularity. Using the trend reports based on worldwide file sharing statistics, you can effectively target marketing in expanding territories. Look forward to sold-out tours!
