Podcasts: where people are actually choosing to listen to ads - mUmBRELLA | Digital Radio | Scoop.it

While podcasts have made a comeback in 2015 Corey Layton argues they are also at the vanguard of innovating ads people want to consume.

Julien Mourlon's insight:

The number one digital commercial service in most capital cities in Australia is Triple M Classic Rock - an older-skewed version of the main Triple M Rock/Sport service.

Julien Mourlon's insight:

"If there's a clear migration path for older, out-of-demo listeners to stay with the brand and personalities they know, you'll not lose them, and there's less concern about alienating them with change on the main service."

How Marc Maron Built a Brand That Helped Him Land the President

How Marc Maron Built a Brand That Helped Him Land the President | Digital Radio | Scoop.it

Maron, 51, has become known for his unique interview style on his podcast—he works to make a personal connection with his guests during a long-form, sometimes provocative interview that often isn't informed by research. It's a style that could be comforting or discomforting, depending on the guest, and one that breeds conversations that feel well earned.

Julien Mourlon's insight:

"That President Barack Obama said the n-word earlier this week while making a point about racism in America understandably made headlines. That he said it during his appearance on WTF with Marc Maron, an appearance that certainly helped Maron's brand skyrocket, makes sense, too."

In 2014, terrestrial and satellite radio brought in $17.3 billion in advertising revenue, which is rising at a rate of 1-2% each year. In contrast, music streaming in the US reaped just $1.1 billion in advertising and subscription revenue last year."

Could Spotify Podcasts Finally Make Money From the Medium? | Digital Radio | Scoop.it
Spotify podcasts could finally bring a proper business model to a medium that has so far lacked one.
Julien Mourlon's insight:

"While iTunes is unlikely to go away anytime soon, Spotify is ideally positioned to, after a long decade, finally get podcasting right, making online audio listening a viable proposition for creators, and not just something that is the preserve of geeks. If Spotify does things right, it could be about to usher in a golden age of podcasting."
