Just who is the typical UK YouTuber? Research reveals their influence

by Will Corry on April 20, 2014

New research from Google profiling UK YouTubers shows they are older, more social and more influential than you might expect

UK YouTube viewers are a highly sociable bunch according to the latest findings from Google-commissioned research. Far from spending all day in their rooms with the curtains drawn, they’re twice as likely to go to the cinema or sporting events than non-YouTube viewers. They’re four times as likely to go to concerts. They’re also older than you’d expect, with 90% of YouTube viewers aged 18 or over and 50% older than 35. Just 10% are aged 13-17, demonstrating that YouTube reaches people across all demographics.

The study was carried out to help brands understand more about the YouTube audience and how best to create relevant content for them.  More research articles from theMarketingblog. [more…]

Research : Londoners fork out more than twice the amount of the rest of the country on each online order

by Will Corry on April 14, 2014

Londoners spend more than twice as much per purchase online than the rest of the UK

Web users in London spend on average more than twice as much as their provincial counterparts every time they make a purchase online according to new research from Customer Experience Management (CXM) platform @qubitgroup Qubit.  The average online order value in London is £268.00 compared to just £100.23 for internet shoppers in the rest of the UK.

However, this doesn’t mean that Londoners are an easy target for internet retailers – whilst they spend more with each purchase, they tend to be more picky, with an average conversion rate (e.g. the percentage of visitors who go on to purchase) standing at 2.07% compared to a non-London average of 2.32%.
