For editors

In tech terminology, Content Insights is a multi-faceted web analytics platform for data-driven evaluation, ranking and comparing of authors and content performance across websites. In everyday speak, our package helps journalists and editors understand how their audience responds to their work in a really simple and comprehensible way.

By editors

Launching officially in June, 2016, Content Insights is the brainchild of a group of editors who found existing analytics tools a bit too time-consuming to be called efficient. Having spent two years talking with editors across the globe, and refining what is essentially a massive Big Data machine, we’re delighted to be able to share what we think is the most useful (and most friendly!) editorial analytics package out there today.

The story

Content Insights is a robust, powerful and extremely user-friendly editorial analytics tool, turning Big Data into easy reading. But we didn’t build it overnight…

2011

Dejan in trouble

Nov 2011Dejan Nikolic, editor of Njuz.net, can’t work out the best way to pay his writers. Worse still, he can’t find the tools to help him solve the problem. He realises there’s a hole in the market…

2012

First crappy version

Jan 2012Using his writers as guinea pigs, he builds the first crappy version of CPI (the Content Performance Indicator). Nobody gets paid. This is going to be harder than he thought.

Founders meet

Nov 2012The first founders meeting takes place in Belgrade. The main point of discussion is how to turn Dejan’s monstrosity into something friendly and reliable. They come up with an idea for calculating author fees (Payformance), and Ilija builds something that actually works.

2013

Early adopters

May 2013More than 30 local and regional newsrooms enlist as early adopters. The first major product redesign is completed, moving from Payformance to Author Insights (an analytics tool). Too late to turn back now!

MVP launch

Oct 2013The first beta phase is opened to all. More users gain access and the team begin receiving valuable feedback. We learn so much. There is much rejoicing, but there’s still so much to do.

2014

First investment

Apr 2014We are accepted into the the Eleven Startup Acceleration program. Dejan sheds his body weight in relieved tears.

Back to Novi Sad

Jul 2014Far from being sorrowful, Novi Sad is the name of the town in which the first team is formed, which the first employees hired.

Content performance analytics

Aug 2014The focus is altered slightly, from author performance to content performance. So we change our name. We’re now Content Insights (and God bless all who sail in her!)

2015

First paying customers

Jan 2015People start to give us their money. Things are beginning to feel very grown up around here.

Investment

Jul 2015We raise seed round investment from the Eleven fund. Dejan sheds another body-load of joyous tears.

Content Insights AD

Sep 2015The company is registered as Content Insights AD. If it was too late to turn back before, it’s WAY too late now.

2016

Investment

Mar 2016We secure series A investment from NBM and NEVEQ. The good ship CI is on course for global waters. No longer having the tears to shed, Dejan works on rebuilding own body weight.

His hero is C3PO – or, as Dragomir says, "the original, better dressed Google Translate."
