WE BELIEVE IN WHAT CAN BE.

NOT WHAT IS.

OUR MISSION

We enable the effective monetization and personalization of digital audio by providing a complete suite of advertising and analytics solutions.

WHO WE ARE

We are the leading global digital audio advertising solution provider, headquartered in Silicon Valley, with a presence in 39 countries.  We build the intricate ecosystem that enables digital audio advertising transactions to flow easily between buyers and sellers. We understand that audio as a medium is different. It has the power to inspire, engage, and change people. And we are committed to unleashing that power and helping our customers and listeners have a better experience.

THE ADSWIZZ STORY

The AdsWizz end-to-end suite of digital audio advertising software powers many leading digital ad-sale houses, publishers, music platforms, podcast publishers, trading desks, and digital agencies. If you listen to services like Pandora, iHeart Radio, TuneIn, NPR, Cox Radio, CBS Radio/ Entercom, Deezer, Kiss FM, or Rogers Media Radio in Canada, then chances are that you have already met us and been exposed to our technology.

 

AdsWizz was founded in 2008, when one of Europe’s largest media houses tasked us to provide a video ad serving solution. The website was popular, but ad tech companies provided little or no video or audio ad-serving offerings.  In early 2010, we developed the first ever solution to serve one-to-one targeted ads to online radio listeners in a unique, new way through server-side ad-insertion, and the company immediately began growing fast to meet the new demand. We added an audio analytics component through the acquisition of WebMediaStats in 2011, and began growing quickly in Europe. We successfully launched a global digital audio marketplace called AdWave in 2012, and began the first-ever dynamic ad insertion trials for podcasts. In 2013, iHeartMedia adopted our digital audio advertising platform, and we further strengthened our footprint in Europe. We continued building out our full stack digital audio programmatic offering with our ad management and trafficking solution, AudioServe, in 2014, and our audio-centric SSP, AudioMax, in 2015. In 2016, we built upon our podcast ad serving infrastructure with the first-ever programmatic podcast marketplace, PodWave, and introduced AudioMatic, our audio-centric DSP.  Then, in 2017, we began to move beyond audio ad publishing with our new audio ad formats, including ShakeMe™, to help advertisers better engage with audiences.. We also worked with major agencies and iHeartMedia to introduce an integrated Alexa skill.

 

Today, we continue to add major publishers, music services, podcast platforms, digital agencies, and trading desks to the growing list of partners whom we collaborate with closely to ensure their success.  Our partners rely on our technology platform to power their next generation digital audio advertising experiences.
