Audio

Overview: Audio campaigns allow you to serve 15, 30, or 60 second audio advertisements across a variety of audio streaming services.  These include the Spotify exchange (or Spotify PMP), and the Triton Digital and Adswizz exchanges.  Audio delivers a high engagement rate with CTRs between 0.7% -0.9% and over 1% when combined with remarketing.  

Use Cases: Audio ads are effective for creating brand awareness and driving traffic to sites.  The non-skippable placements command attention, driving high visibility and brand awareness. The passive nature of the ads’ display allows for the user to listen and engage without breaking from their typical habits.

KPI: Reach, Click Through Rate (CTR)

Media Type: Audio, Audio with Companion Banner

Placement: Audio ads will serve across radio station channels, Spotify, and websites with audio advertising.

Bid Structure: Audio can be bought either through the Open Exchange, or via PMPs.  Bids on the Open Exchange typically clear between $10 and $13, whereas PMP Deals are often in the $18 – $25 range.

Audience Data Targeting: First and Third-Party Data segments are available but can limit the campaign’s ability to serve.  If Third-Party Audiences are added, increase bids by the average cost of all associated segments.
