From the steady increase of monthly podcast listeners to the 48% increase in ad revenue year-over-year –– podcasts are one of the biggest growth opportunities for publishers and advertisers. As long time supporters of this valuable and engaging platform, we continue to invest in our podcast tech. With that, we’re excited to announce a slew of enhanced features available on our publisher and advertiser platforms.
Digital audio listening is on the rise. Take a deep dive into digital audio advertising in this interview with VP of Marketing for AdsWizz, Kate Gerwe.
Q&A with Comscore and AdsWizz Co-Founder & CTO, Bruno Nieuwenhuys: With more than 67 million Americans listening to podcasts on a weekly basis*, podcasts represent one of the fastest growing channels within advertising, and rightly so. Podcasts listeners are educated, wealthy and engaged with timely, world events and topics.
AdsWizz partners closely with agencies, advertisers and audio publishers, and from our unique vantage point, we’ve observed important trends and gleaned key insights around how listener behaviors are evolving during the pandemic. This blog identifies the trends and opportunities AdsWizz sees that can help brands form a more meaningful connection with audiences during this ‘new normal.’
AdsWizz and OMGP UK Win The Drum Europe 2020 Award for Most Effective Programmatic Media Partnership
We’re thrilled to share that AdsWizz and OMGP UK have been honored with The Drum 2020 Digital Advertising Award for the Most Effective Programmatic Media Partnership! This award rewards the best in the programmatic and ad-tech industry, and we were selected over Google, The Trade Desk, Accenture and other outstanding nominees. OMGP UK and AdsWizz have been working closely together for over 4 years, running hundreds of ground breaking campaigns.
Over the past few years, podcasts have exploded in accessibility and popularity, providing the public with an endless stream of listening options. And as we continue to hunker down in our homes, everyone is spending even more time consuming media, including podcasts. Listening to podcasts has increased during the pandemic — by as much as 30%, depending on the type of content. As the demand for podcasts has increased, so too has ad spend, which is expected to hit over $1 billion next year, according to research firm IAB.
Most people don’t ask, “What’s a podcast?” anymore … instead they ask, “What podcasts are you listening to right now?” It’s a sign of the times and the growing prominence of long-form talk radio. Bursting onto the scene in a big way in 2014 with Sarah Koenig’s addictive podcast Serial, this form of media is growing exponentially.
