There is going to be a lot of audio content being consumed due to the nature of the content. Podcasts are consumed actively and passively whether during the walk or run or while in the gym or car. The rise of audio is going to increase. Make sure to watch out for this in the marketing standpoint of your business. And if you are a marketer for a small to mid-sized business you might be interested to look at how audio content can be utilized to boost your marketing activity.
Investing in the podcasting gear and resources to launch your podcast can feel daunting, especially for small and medium businesses. Startups and small businesses should not be bogged down in investing to create a quality podcast and to see if people like it. Urgent but not important tasks are good candidates for delegation. Podcast advertising allows you to connect with niche audiences that relate to your specific industry through an audio ad and it generates twice the engagement of radio ads. The pool of podcasts is so large and you should consider how to tap into this audience by finding and advertising in a podcast that aligns well with your business and industry.

The number of listeners is rising all over the world
Edison Research estimates that 73% of the U.S. 12+ population (an estimated 209 million people) have listened to online audio, up from 68% in 2021. This jump was primarily driven by listeners age 35+, as the number of those age 35+ who listen to online audio monthly increased by 13% year over year. Weekly online audio listening also rose to 67% of the U.S. 12+ population, up from 62% in 2021.
Understanding the audience of the podcast series or episode is key to successful ad placements. When an audio ad relates to the topic of a podcast series or episode, it might feel more natural to the audience. It is also strategically smart because the audience who are interested in that industry might identify with pain points that your business or product or service aims to solve.
There are so many podcasts which podcasts your target audience is listening to? You can choose from them and start with sponsored segments that can run up to two or three minutes, seamlessly blended into an episode of a beloved podcast. You can have select podcast hosts talk up your brand sharing a story about your business or product or service and then advance from there.
