Podcasting has been in growing substantially over the last decade and Spotify seems to be taking on this opportunity to grow as an advertising platform, using advertising for podcasting. In this week’s episode of Digible Dudes podcast, we aim to explore Spotify advertising and what you need to know with Kara Lee; Paid Media Strategist at Digible, and Grace Harrison, Account Manager at Digible. Throughout the episode, we dive into how Spotify advertising works, some of the unique features available in Spotify advertising, and why advertisers in the multi-family space should be looking at Spotify advertising.
Starting the conversation, Kara and Grace introduce Spotify advertising and information like how it works, the duration of an advertisement, where they appear, and more. Spotify is a great experience for listeners because people can choose what they want to hear unlike radio, you can’t choose what you want to hear, you have to hear what the host chose to play. In that regard, radio is a passive platform for listeners and Spotify is an interesting one.
Podcast advertising on Spotify is gaining popularity because of the amazing opportunities to advertise like Q/A, and polls, and also retargeting brings out the best opportunity to engage with advertisements by Spotify itself.
Wrapping up the conversation, Reid dives into the differences between traditional and digital media buying, how difficult it is for the customers, and at last, what podcasts they most like to hear.
