▶️ Community: measure the growth of your channel through the number of subscribers (with the subscriber balance) compared to the number of views or revenue.
▶️ Demographics: your community broken up by gender, country, as well as the source of traffic for your videos (direct, unknown, recommended from YouTube, etc.).
▶️ Videos: measure the performance of your videos with the number of views as well as interactions of ‘likes’, ‘comments’, etc.

- Program your YouTube content
If you usually upload more than one video and have everything planned, you can schedule all your videos and shorts from Metricool.

Simple, isn’t it?
Tips to manage two or more YouTube channels
If you are starting to administer more than one YouTube channel, you might be realizing that it’s more complicated than it looks. And if you’ve been stuck here for a while, you’re probably looking for solutions.
That’s why I’m going to leave a few tips on how to organize yourself so that you don’t make silly mistakes that can trigger larger problems…
✅ Make separate calendars
Create different calendars where you can organize content to its appropriate channel. This way you will not mix content from different channels or be unclear about what to post on each of them.
✅ Assign a different color to each channel
If each channel has a different color, you can then also assign tasks with the same color to mentally and physically organize your content. This way, you will not confuse yourself in which content you need to post and in what channel.
✅Do the analysis of each channel and editorial calendar on different days
If you create a content calendar for all channels on the same day, it is possible that you can mess up or confuse content. If you have time, it is advisable to dedicate one day to one channel and the next day to another. If you manage multiple accounts, you could break it up by doing one in the morning and one in the afternoon, to not create confusion.
The same can be done at the end of each month when you have to analyze the performance of each channel.
Now you have everything you need to manage YouTube channels at once: with YouTube itself or with Metricool, where you can have all your work using one tool.
