Guardian News and amp; Media partners with Rightster to enhance its YouTube presence

Guardian News & Media (GNM) today confirmed that it has partnered with Rightster, the video distribution and monetisation solutions provider, to enhance and manage its YouTube channels.  The partnership aims to make accessing the Guardians award-winning multimedia content easier for YouTube users, whilst effectively building new engaged audiences and digital revenues.

Announcing the partnership, GNM revealed that its Three Little Pigs campaign advert has now been viewed on its YouTube channel over 1 million times, making it the Guardians most-viewed YouTube video since the channel launched in 2006.                             

The Guardians main YouTube channel currently has over 11,000 subscribers, a number that has more than doubled in the last year.  By working with Rightsters services team, the Guardian aims to continue to increase the number of subscribers and drive views of its content, whilst simultaneously simplifying the process of managing and optimising its YouTube channels.

GNM will utilise Rightsters technology systems to develop content strategy, build audience, manage channel operations, and monetise video via Rightsters media sales team, for the Guardians main YouTube channel, as well as its existing music and forthcoming new specialist content channels.  Rightster will also manage all reporting, analytics, content claims, and revenue performance.

The partnership will also enable the Guardian to optimise advertising revenue on YouTube, bringing new revenues from exclusive premium brand sponsorship opportunities, and leveraging the full suite of ad formats on YouTube.

Stephen Folwell, Director of Business Development and Brand Extensions, Guardian News & Media, said: YouTube is an important platform for the Guardian, and in the last year monthly views of the Guardians video content on YouTube have increased by 44%, from 450,000 a month in April 2011 to 650,000 in April 2012. 

We are therefore delighted to be partnering with Rightster to enhance the Guardian's presence on the worlds biggest video sharing platform.  Since launching our digital-first strategy last year, we have been striving to make our content available on more platforms than ever before, and this partnership will enable us to build on the Guardians existing YouTube presence, and bring our multimedia journalism to new, engaged audiences.

Charlie Muirhead, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Rightster, said: Were excited to support the Guardian as it continues to be a global leader in multimedia content.  Rightsters software system makes the task of distributing, monetising, and promoting video content through YouTube - and other channels - simple and efficient.  Moving forward, the Guardian will be able to attract more viewers and grow its audience online, while using our media sales expertise to improve monetisation and access new revenue streams.
