Here’s how we can help you:
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.
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.
Brand Lift Studies
Edison partners with networks, shows, and leading brands to determine the real, measurable impact of podcast advertising campaigns. Our process involves executing methodologically sound pre- and post-campaign surveys, using industry-standard measures of awareness, fit, and lift. In addition, we work with agencies, media buyers, and the brands themselves to incorporate custom metrics and key performance indicators into every study, allowing stakeholders to calibrate and compare the effectiveness of their podcast campaigns with their other media placements. We have conducted Brand Lift studies for a wide variety of brands and categories, from leading retailers to financial services products, restaurants, consumer packaged goods, and more.
Content providers can leverage Edison’s decade of experience in the medium through an ongoing consulting arrangement.
