PODCASTS AND ADVERTISING USING PODCASTS

The use of advertisements to increase sale revenue is an effective marketing strategy that has been used by various businesses. However, finding the best means to use to advertise for products is quite challenging. Radio stations, podcasts, and even the internet can be used to advertise, but one is still not sure whether he or she has maximally reached the target market.

Norman Pattiz, the chairman of Podcastone and Tom Webster, conducted research to study the effectiveness of pre and post-campaign brand lifts for advertisers using podcasts. The research was successful as it indicated that there is a positive influence of advertising using the podcast in the recall of brands and even the intent to purchase by consumers.

In the research findings, Norman Pattiz and Tom Webster were able to draw the following conclusions;

  1. Almost 60% of listeners alluded to a certain grocery brand post-campaign, this is up from 7% among listeners in the pre-studies
  2. Unaided awareness of products had increased by 47% since conducting the pre-studies.
  3. In the post-study, almost a third of the respondents had a favorable opinion of an automobile aftermarket product.
  4. The awareness of a particular campaign message for an automobile aftermarket product was also up by 60%.
