The study revealed a whole new set of discoveries, among which a significant rise in knowledge of brands among clients. Before the product promotion, a measly 7% of customers knew of grocery products, but afterward, the number shot up to 60%. The case was the same in the automobile industry, as brand awareness increased by a substantial proportion.
Under the mandate of PodcastOne, Edison Research conducted a survey to determine the influence of podcast ads on marketing. The brands under study were all-encompassing, ranging from household names to new entrants. The research ran for one and a half months, using online questionnaires as a source of data. Judging from the outcome, it is succinct that consumers welcomed this move, as the inclination to purchase goods after the campaign increased incredibly. Also, clients displayed an in-depth understanding of brands, particularly the ones that were hitherto relatively unknown.
Norman Pattiz felt vindicated, saying that it was always his dream to prove that podcast advertising has the upper hand on conventional publicizing methods. He added that the results corroborate with their unique and multilevel approach to product promotion.
Edison’s VP, Tom Webster, expressed gratitude to all parties that participated in the research. He further added that their approach enabled them to carry out extensive studies, which unequivocally verified the superiority of podcast advertising methods over other techniques.
