The domain of BatteryPark.TV has received approximately 100,000 views since we started counting this year. Of the actual videos, more than 175,000 people have viewed them. (A video of a previous 9/11 police bagpipe parade has more than 100,000 views, but is not part of our current player list). Our most viewed news story video was the exclusive report of the attack on a local resident by the PEP. It was viewed by nearly 4,000 people.
The current monthly viewers are close to 9,000, and growing, with no marketing or promotional efforts to speak of. Please spread the word.
Of note, we have a significant Goldman Sachs viewership due to Google searches for lunch choices. The law firms and American Express across the street also use our sources for food decisions.
Those stats are respectable considering that only 10,000 or so people live in Battery Park City proper, and our stories are focused on local issues for the most part.
Keep in mind that we are not a content aggregation farm like the Huffington Post. We could post others’ stories with mainstream appeal and inflate our viewership, should we so desire. However, maximizing total clicks is not our goal. We aim to build the viewership of the valuable Battery Park demographic, with local purchasing and voting power.
Thank you, and stay tuned for 2012
