Your Ads in the Ears of Targeted Listeners

Digital audio is an umbrella term that includes all audio that is consumed digitally. As technology advances, users are shifting away from terrestrial radio and consuming their audio digitally on an on-demand basis. Current studies show that more than 1 in 2 Americans stream audio digitally on a weekly basis. Digital audio can include streaming music, like Pandora or Spotify, as well as podcasts. Traditional AM/FM stations even offer streaming services via various apps.

Growth of Digital Radio

The digital forms of terrestrial radio are increasing in popularity as vehicles have better technology to accommodate them and users prefer to choose what they listen to and when they listen to it, versus the traditional broadcast radio format. These formats have an online presence 24/7 since they can be consumed via smartphones, tablets, smart speakers and more. Data shows that over 79% of users 18-49 are listening to digital audio and over 44% of consumers listen to digital radio in their vehicle.

Digital Audio vs Traditional Radio

Digital Audio differs from traditional radio in many ways. Rather than purchasing ads on a station based on the demographics of the audience, digital audio allows advertisers to target users no matter what they are listening to. Demographics like age and gender, geography, in-market audience segments and household income are just some of the ways you can target your ads with digital radio. You no longer need to purchase a specific channel and hope your audience is listening. With digital audio, every impression is reaching your target audience.
