With the proliferation of digital audio, podcasts, and streaming radio, the way we listen to content is ever-changing. Although consumers still listen to traditional AM/FM radio, content such as podcasts, streaming music, and digital radio are growing rapidly – even more so in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the proliferation of programmatic audio, podcasts, and streaming radio, the way we listen to content is ever changing. By 2021, the average US adult will spend 86.88 minutes a day with digital audio, according to eMarketer.
As consumers move from radio to digital audio, major advertisers are buying fewer and fewer traditional radio ads, and instead are turning to digital to extend their audience reach and increase message frequency, with the inherent efficiencies that programmatic advertising offers over more traditional ad buys.
So many brands are jumping on the native advertising bandwagon. As one of the most engaging channels in programmatic advertising, native seems to pop up in almost every campaign strategy conversation we have with our marketer and agency clients. And because there is so much talk around native, we get a lot of questions about how to optimize these campaigns so that they are most effective. So we decided to go straight to the source, and bring in one of our native partners, Taboola, to help answer some common questions about native advertising.
