Parks Associates and TargetSpot to host webcast on new digital audio research

According to new research from Parks Associates and TargetSpot, Internet radio can more than double consumers’ ad response rates when included in an advertising campaign. On Thursday, June 9, at 1:00 p.m. CT, the two firms will co-host the "TargetSpot Digital Audio Insights" webcast, which will detail recent findings about Internet radio advertising impact, synergies with digital and broadcast advertising, and behavior of digital audio listeners.

The proliferation of Internet-enabled devices has led to an increase in digital audio usage, creating an innovative and impactful vehicle to connect with consumers. Additionally, those who listen regularly to digital audio are a highly desirable audience – they are tuned-in to multiple devices for significant amounts of time each day, are deeply engaged with the content, and demonstrate high recall and response rates for ads.

“Digital audio is one of the fastest growing online media categories, and marketers can no longer afford to ignore its impact in engaging today’s consumers,” said Andy Lipset, Chief Revenue Officer, TargetSpot; co-chair, IAB Digital Audio Advertising Committee. “In addition, the highly desirable qualities of these listeners further reinforce the benefit of incorporating digital audio into an overall marketing program.”

“TargetSpot’s research findings show a direct relationship between Internet radio listenership and positive broadcast radio and digital media ad recall and response rates,” said Heather Way, Research Analyst, Parks Associates. “The data confirm digital audio is a natural complement to existing traditional and digital media ad campaigns.”
