An insider’s guide to Gigsby Momentum Reports

By Baris on June 14th, 2011
 

Hello there,
We have been getting a lot of questions on how Gigsby Momentum reports work and admittedly, we have been a little secretive about it. Better late than never, here is a quick FAQ:
What are these rankings based on? Why don’t I see some big names?
The report ranks fastest accelerating electronic music artists based on their last.fm, Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud and Youtube fan growth. You may or may not see big names – it all depends on their growth rate. Note that the “Momentum” chart is based on growth, not sheer popularity. For example, phenomenal growth achieved by a small act may get it at the top of the list despite its relatively small following.
If an artist is at the top of the Momentum (1 Day) report, what does it mean?
It means that the artist has shown the most fan growth overnight. The “1 week” report shows growth in the past 7 days, so on and so forth.
Are these numbers accurate?
Hell yeah. They are as accurate as it gets. We have a monster algorithm and a tireless data crunching engine that does the heavy lifting for each and every artist, every single day.
What is driving these numbers?
Simply put, growth in popularity. A new album release, a great live performance in a big event (eg. festival), getting featured by a popular magazine, a chart-topping single, or an online marketing campaign can all lead to growth in fan base. Our experience is that the culprit for sustained growth is usually a combination of all of the above.
How many artists are there? Am I (or are my artists) included in the ranking?
There are over 22,000 artists and counting. If you are have an artist profile on Gigsby or managing your artist’s profile, then yes, you are definitely included. You just need to make sure that all your social media accounts are plugged.
Hope it helps. There are more questions to answer. We will continue in the next community email. Stay tuned.
Cheers,
Baris

    For the interest of developing a related product comparisons, we’ve looked at routers in this range that discuss
    similar aspects like IEEE 802.11n wi fi standards, 2.4 GHz band and dual antennas.
    If you are looking for a new router, nothing less
    than an n layer 3 switch should be considered. For those who own a
    wireless g router, it would be best to improve to some radio n layer 3 switch.
    The latest routers also raise speed with Wi-Fi Quality of Service applications (QoS)
    common, which makes efficient utilization of Ethernet
    connections by prioritizing multimedia visitors according to the application’s sensitivity to delay.
    Many wireless-n routers additionally apply multiple-input and several-output
    (MIMO) radio antennae to boost speeds.
