We’re changing the way podcasters engage advertisers and reach new audiences by connecting through AVOD OTT.
Talk Media is a premium podcast only AVOD OTT service offering talk show based podcasts in video format, giving audiences a new access point into the show. Selected by humans, not algorithms, Talk Media content combines the best of branded and online advertising.
Big brands have not bought into podcasting because of unfamiliarity with the platform, non-linear sales model, lack of a robust measurement, and limited ad tracking.
Podcasting’s popularity is motivating brands to seek reliable ways to invest in the space.
Podcasters are seeking new ways to break through to big brands and reach mass audiences.
WHY AVOD OTT
An IAB report in October 2018 found advertisers see viewers of OTT as an “ incremental, high value audience.”
AVOD will see massive growth in overall revenues during the next five years. According to Digital TV Research, global AVOD revenues will more than double between 2018 and 2024 to reach $56 billion.
Roku, one of the leading AVOD platforms, reached an all-time revenue high of $151.4 million in Q4, a whopping 77% year-over-year increase. Roku expects to surpass $1 billion in sales in 2019
Advertisers find AVOD OTT highly effective and trust the platform. A 2017 Comcast report found streaming TV viewers complete 98% of all ads on videos, meaning OTT ads have the top engagement percent.
