Edison Research has been continuously researching podcasting since 2005, and our data on podcast consumption is relied upon by thousands of podcasters all over the world. In addition to our regular stand-alone reports on podcasting, we have coved the medium in our Infinite Dial series for a decade, and recently unveiled new measures of podcasting’s Share of Ear℠. In addition, we have provided private research and consultation services for entities such as PodcastOne, WNYC (Radiolab), Audible and many more producers of podcast content. Here’s how we can help you:

Audience Research

Edison can provide your podcast with credible research to provide crucial information on the demographics of your audience. Podcasts reach a highly targeted audience with great efficiency, and an Edison-backed survey of that audience will provide advertisers, agencies, and media buyers with information they can trust.

Measurement Metrics

One of the key issues podcasters face is the myriad of hosting and metrics options available. Edison has developed its own in-house measurement portal that automatically aggregates metrics from a wide variety of sources into one clear dashboard that gives podcast networks and producers an immediate breakdown of their downloads and trend information.

Advertising Effectiveness Research

Podcasts can be an incredibly powerful way for brands to deliver a message and drive an audience to action. The highly targeted nature of podcasts, combined with the trust that listeners have in their favorite hosts, combine to offer advertisers the ability to gain access to an engaged and receptive audience. Edison works with media producers, agencies, and advertisers to craft advertising effectiveness research that shows exactly how much lift a podcast campaign can provide.

Consulting Services

Content providers can leverage Edison’s decade of experience in the medium through an ongoing consulting arrangement.
