Why Podcast Advertising Is Growing
There’s one key reason that brands are paying more money for podcast advertising: it works, especially as traditional advertising mediums have become increasingly less effective over the past few years.
Look at the traditional banner advertisement. According to DoubleThink, the average display ad click-through rate is 0.06%. Of course, this figure is a bit misleading, as different ad sizes and placement spots can change this number considerably, but even the best-optimized banner ad is unlikely to get more than one click per three hundred impressions. The banner blindness phenomenon has arisen as Internet visitors have grown wary of banner ads and started to tune them out.
Data shows that podcasting stands heads and shoulders above traditional display advertising.
So why is podcast advertising a more effective way for brands to gain attention? For starters, it offers several unique benefits:
- Podcasts tend to be highly engaging mediums for delivering messages. Given the audio nature of podcasts, listeners tend to hang on to every word, making them an excellent audience for advertisers who are trying to get their brands known. You don’t have to worry about them tuning out your ad like they do in many other mediums.
- People listen to podcasts because they have a deep respect for the host. And since they put their trust in the hosts of their favorite podcasts, they’re much more receptive to the brands that these hosts decide to endorse.
Podcasting is a great way to promote your brand and products, but there are also plenty of things that can go wrong if you don’t know what you’re doing. In particular, there are three key steps to a successful podcast advertising campaign that every brand needs to be aware of:
- Finding (or creating) podcasts that appeal to their target audience
- Understanding the nature of the intended audience
Brands that understand these practices will likely find that their podcast ads substantially outperform those on other mediums. Read more. Click here!
