What is Digital Audio Advertising?

Digital audio advertising has ballooned over the past few years as technology has advanced the access and availability to streaming media, which in turn, has increased users’ overall time online. According to the 2019 Infinite Dial report, Americans over the age of 12 years old are listening nearly 17 hours of online audio a week!

This is a huge opportunity to enter the new landscape of audio advertisements. eMarketer also reports that as listenership on traditional radio continues to fall year over year, digital radio is expected to surpass traditional by 2021.

The rise in digital audio streaming creates the need for easy and efficient digital audio advertising. This is where audio advertising, served programmatically, takes the lead. Programmatic audio is a type of digital advertising format designed for placement in audio contents such as podcasts, digital radio, and music-streaming services.
