Podcast One in conjunction with Edison Research Evaluate the Effectiveness of Podcast Advertising

Early on February 9, 2017, Norman Pattiz and Tom Webster, the VP of strategy at Edison Research, unveiled the findings of studies focusing on the outcomes of adverting tests.

The studies involved five top national consumer brands spread out across five distinct service and product categories. They were undertaken throughout the last half of 2016 and revealed significant positive outcomes of podcast adverting on intent to buy, recall of specific messaging and brand recall.

Edison Research undertook three different studies in 2016 for PodcastOne to evaluate the usefulness of podcast advertising for five major national brands.

Some of the brands involved were popular but aimed at unveiling new messaging whereas others were less popular but were seeking more awareness and trial. The online surveys were conducted not only before the campaigns ran but also after each of the five national brands had run for about 4-6 weeks.

One of the findings from the study suggested that unassisted product awareness raised by 47% from pre-study to post-study, especially for a financial services product. Learn more about Norman Pattiz: https://www.entrepreneur.com/video/293555

The unaided product awareness for a lawn and garden product and automobile aftermarket product increased by 24% and 37 % respectively. Additionally, the results cited that more than 60% of the listeners stated a specific grocery brand post-campaign, which increased from 7% among pre-study listeners.
