MrBeast Ventures into SaaS with ViewStats, an analytics hub for YouTube Creators

TL;DR: Jimmy Donaldson, better known as MrBeast, has ventured into the realm of analytics with the launch of ViewStats, a dedicated platform for YouTube channel analytics.

Jimmy Donaldson, better known as MrBeast, has ventured into the realm of analytics with the launch of ViewStats, a dedicated platform for YouTube channel analytics. Co-founded by MrBeast and Chucky Appleby, a content creator associated with MrBeast HQ, ViewStats aims to provide creators with in-depth insights into their video performance, mirroring MrBeast’s analytical approach that has made him the most-subscribed creator on YouTube.

Unlike other analytics tools such as Social Blade, ViewStats utilizes the YouTube API to offer detailed statistics accessible to both creators and their audience. With a focus on user-friendly presentation and clarity, ViewStats displays essential information like subscriber numbers, estimated monthly ad revenue, and video views. The platform also introduces advanced “channelytics,” providing metrics for estimated revenue and projected growth.

Chucky Appleby, the CEO of ViewStats, envisions the platform becoming an essential daily tool for YouTube creators. The database allows users to apply MrBeast-style analysis to their videos, helping them make informed decisions about content creation. As an independent entity from MrBeast, LLC, ViewStats has received direct funding from both MrBeast and Appleby.

In addition to basic information, ViewStats features a unique page displaying the results of A/B tests involving video thumbnails. Creators can analyze which types of thumbnails perform the best, view title changes, and assess rankings of each channel’s top-performing videos. The platform aims to simplify analysis, emphasizing details that contribute to increased clicks and viewer retention.

While ViewStats is currently subscription-free and ad-free, Appleby has not ruled out the possibility of introducing a paid subscription tier or in-platform ads in the future. The platform’s accessibility and focus on clear presentation aim to cater to a broad audience of creators.

Appleby believes that ViewStats will become an indispensable tool for YouTubers, offering insights into MrBeast’s approach and best practices. As the platform evolves, Appleby plans to introduce additional tools for ideation and thumbnail design, resembling internal tools used by the MrBeast team. Creators adopting ViewStats are expected to enhance and optimize their content, gaining a competitive edge in the dynamic landscape of YouTube.
