You can find this section at the bottom of each YouTube report if an influencer has at least one mention over the past 90 days. Each Brand Mention consists of:
- A Brand Name with a link to its website
- Total views. If an influencer mentioned a brand in several videos, Total Views reflects a sum of views.
- CPM figures with its assessment. CPM or Cost per thousand views benchmarked against other videos on the influencer’s channel.
If you need detailed information about a specific video, click “View Video” (or on the number of videos if the are more than one video), and you’ll get the video title, Call to action, views, and CPM.
