The importance of social media marketing is frequently discussed, and visual/video formats are often referred to as the gold standard. However, David Ciccarelli’s new report points out that video has many limitations, and that there is a large and growing audience who now access content through audio mediums such as podcasts.
According to Edison Research, 144 million Americans over the age of 12 have listened to podcasts and 32% of the population does so on a monthly basis. While music is, of course, one popular type of content, Edison also indicates that 74% of podcast listeners do so to learn something new.
David Ciccarelli’s recent piece explains that audio-first content allows people to do other tasks at the same time, making it a much more convenient format than other mediums. In addition, he states that most podcasts contain several advertising slots, providing an ideal opportunity for marketers.
Indeed, the report indicates that audio-first marketing is not only a valuable outlet, but it can also be more powerful than visual approaches. It explains the concept of ‘banner blindness’, which refers to the ability of consumers to tune out visual advertising on a web page or video. Conversely, Mr. Ciccarelli states that audio advertising has been shown to reach target audiences more successfully.
