Online surveys were carried out on the audiences of leading podcasts. The advertisements ran for between four to six weeks on specific podcasts. The same methodology was used on all podcast ads to avoid biases.
The findings from the post and pre-campaign surveys indicated that the podcast audiences were highly receptive to advertisements and there was increased willingness to buy brands. Norman Pattiz stated that the primary focus of PodcastOne is to ensure that the adverting format is far much better than traditional ones.
Mr. Webster who is the current Vice-President of Edison Research said that his company was honored to work with PodcastOne to measure the effects of podcast advertising on consumer brands.
Tom also reported that the method used by Edison Research allowed them to study consumers before and after the advertisements were made. According to Webster, the survey showed that there were positive impacts of podcast advertisements on products and services.
