Why is Podcast Media the Fast-Growing DR Media Channel?
Podcasts are an opt-in channel with content that the listeners are seeking out. Listeners are more engaged than other channels. They are very loyal to their favorite podcasts and have a strong commitment to their hosts, who are often thought leaders, influencers, and trendsetters. They are highly educated with above-average incomes.
An astounding 81% of podcast listeners say they pay attention to podcast ads, more than double other media channels. 61% having made a purchase from a podcast ad. The Average Net Promoter Score (a measurement of the loyalty of a firm’s customer relationships) is 70 vs. a score of 45 for the overall media industry. Plus, brand recall is over 4X better than other forms of digital advertising.

Be careful not to confuse this channel with radio. The targeting abilities are far greater with the ability to market by interest category, demographics, and host reads who can really help “sell” a product through the credibility they have with their audiences. It helps to be disruptive telling innovative stories about your product or service and it’s ideal if your product has strong ratings.
