November - Report
The last issue reported data as on Nov 28 th , 2020 . Now that we are in December 2020 , it would be good to get a quick look at the highlights of November 2020.
  1. Videos published in November 2020 : 339
  2. Views for videos published in Nov 20 : 1.15 million
  3. First day views for all 339 videos : 3,02,931 views
  4. Average views per day : 36,116 (for November Videos)
  5. 128 new publishers in November 2020
A review as on date shows that videos published before Dec 1, 2020 received a total of 4,31,638 views in the last 6 days leading to an average of 71,940 views each day , while December videos have received an average of 10,876 views each day in December. In comparison to the previous month the performance of videos published in December in the last 6 days has been very weak. On November 6th , 2020 , videos published in November had received 1,81,959 cumulative views. As on December 6th , for videos published in December the total views received is only 65,255 views which is significantly lower . This could be due to the fact that sponsored videos of earlier months were attracting more viewers in comparison to the sponsored videos of the current period. As on Dec 6,2020 all notion videos have received a cumulative of 16.95 million views.

Parting thoughts
I was planning to shift the database and website to Notion once the API was available, which I was expecting by end of this year.. However the below tweet talks about no specific dates as of now.
@RenanGoodtime We're planning to open our private beta to a limited group of developers in the coming weeks.

Our public launch will come afterward - no ETA yet, since we'll have to refine our API based on beta feedback we get in the upcoming months! Appreciate your continued patience 🙏
Now that I have the entire Notion database in a Notion table which is now public , I am planning to host the website in notion itself. Any suggestions would be welcome.
Have a great week ahead. Take care and be safe . See you next week. Hari
