Research Studies


Edison Research was contracted by PodcastOne to conduct different studies in the second half of 2016 in order to test how effective Podcast advertising was to select five nationwide brands. Although some of these brands were well known, they were putting out a new message to the market. There were some products that were little known and were on the verge of creating more increased awareness as well as trial. In all the studies, there were a number of online surveys conducted upon the audiences of these leading podcasts immediately before the campaigns ran and then again after been broadcasted for a number of weeks like four to six. The same methodology was used for all the cases and the end results posted showed that the market became more receptive to these brand messages. The same results showed that the market was more willing to try or purchase products and services from these brands. Learn more:
