How YOU Can Disrupt the Digital Ad Space with Podcast Advertising

Podcast advertising offers brands a unique opportunity to get in front of a hyper-targeted audience. While there are more than 700,000 active podcasts, this medium is currently at an infancy stage. With Apple finally investing in podcast analytics and Spotify acquiring two podcasting companies in 2019, Gimlet Media and Anchor, the future for podcasts and podcast advertising may be the next best thing.

In this session, Kat will talk about the growth of the podcast advertising industry, teach you how to find podcasts that are in line with your target audience, how to run a podcast advertising campaign, what KPIs to consider, and how to know if your campaign is successful. Plus, she’ll share sponsorship examples and real client results!
