Elevating Content Creation with Precision: Our Open Source French Food Media Analysis Tool

In the vibrant streets of Paris, where every corner tells a story and every dish sings a song, I’ve been on a mission: not just to observe, but to understand, to analyse, and to innovate. For me, building this tool started out as a personal project to understand what is the state of the media landscape in France and is there realistically an opportunity for me to build a career that leverages my love of writing, creation, speaking and food and blend it all together. The result? A Media Analysis tool & framework that’s not just a resource—it’s a revelation for businesses, creators, and the culinary curious seeking to carve their niche in the heart of France’s bustling capital.

The Genesis of a Game-Changer

Over recent months, our journey into the depths of data has unearthed treasures of insight into the Parisian content creation scene. This journey wasn’t passive; it was a quest for actionable, tangible assets that not only map the landscape but also guide the way forward.

Open Source French Food Media Analysis Methodology

Our Goal: To empower creators with a tool that’s a compass in the digital realm, enabling you to:

  1. Decode the desires of your audience
  2. Scope out the competition with precision
  3. Capture trends and opportunities that put you ahead of the curve

Too often, lists of “must-follows” feel more like friendly shoutouts than curated insights. Our aim? To cut through the noise with real-world data and observations that bring clarity and strategy to your creative endeavors.

1. Real-World Data: The Foundation

  • Utilizing advanced tools like Followerwonk and SocialBlade, we delve deep into specific channels and topics, bringing you data that’s both broad and deeply nuanced.
  • Initial forays into scraping platforms like YouTube & Twitter set the stage, offering a base from which to build and enrich.

2. Data Enrichment: Adding Depth

  • By curating topics for easy trend spotting and diving deep into content analysis, we bring layers of understanding to raw numbers.
  • Observations become insights, insights become strategies.

3. Influence Measurement: The Metric That Matters

  • Total Audience Size is our north star, guiding content creators with numbers that speak volumes, automatically calculated to bring you the insights you need, without the fluff.

The Road Ahead: Charting the Course

The journey doesn’t stop at collection; it’s about bringing data to life through easily digestible graphics and user testing, ensuring our tools are not just powerful, but also intuitive.

  1. There are levels of automation that can be added to this tool that we are not quite able to build yet as they require both skill and platforms that today we do not have access too.
  2. The data itself could be argued is not complete. There are lots more media channels and creators to map onto the project.
  3. A notion page is not that easy to read, it could have an improved UI

So we know there is lot to be improved here, but we also know that we have created something that should be shared with the world as one of our resources and tools. With the view to learn more and build more.

The Tools Behind the Magic

  • This tool is build with a Notion Database at it’s core as it offers an easy and accurate way to create a relational database for both us and the end user, you.
  • We used tools like ChannelCrawler, Socialblade through to custom scraping techniques, our toolkit is both broad and bespoke, tailored to uncover the gems of English-speaking and Culinary creativity in France.
