Vessel Dashboard Walk-Through
What You Need to Know
Interactive content pieces can take on various forms, including interactive infographics, assessments, social sharing widgets, and our personal favorite: interactive maps. By creating these innovative experiences that combine technology, content, and design, you will find that you are maximizing your SEO potential and setting yourself up to achieve increases in engagement, return visits, dwell time, and conversions. In this walk-through, we will demonstrate how to interpret your Guide Manager, Venue Analytics, and Insights Dashboardso you can make the most of your Vessel experience.
First Things First: Defining "Moment"
A "moment" is a single image or video content piece. A single pin click counts as a moment view. Swiping to the next image or video will uptick moment views as well. This asset is central to your map's engagement.
The Guide Manager
Unique Page Views (UPV): represents the pageviews that are from the same person, on the same page, in the same session, and just counts them as one.
Map Engagement Rate (MER): represents how actively involved your audience is with your Vessel maps. The MER is the metric used to analyze the efficacy of your campaigns.
What you should know about MER:
Gives a high-level understanding of the guide's performance.
Provides top-of-funnel insight into the reader's journey and decision making.
The best metric to use when selling Sponsored Pins to advertisers.
