A game-changer for the world of audio advertising

A game-changer for the world of audio advertising | online radio | Scoop.it
The development of programmatic ad buying and selling has revolutionised digital media across most formats, from display to video, desktop to mobile – and it’s about to become a powerful force in digital radio and music streaming services too. Perhaps even more surprising, programmatic radio advertising may have a widespread impact on how advertisers attribute campaign success in the future. 

In this digital age, the majority of consumers travel with a laptop, iPad, smartphone or all three. These devices are commonly used to stream music, live radio or podcasts, particularly during commutes on public transport.

Most music or audio programming arrives in our ears through apps. Programmatic audio represents a way to deliver addressable ads directly to consumers, leveraging targeted advertising served through those apps, much the same way that targeted display is delivered to mobile consumers.

This is potentially game-changing for the world of audio advertising, which has traditionally relied on broadcast radio’s reach and scale. Mobile devices and apps are treasure troves of consumer data, giving radio advertisers the ability to measure the quantity of consumers that hear their ads, what demographic groups these listeners fall into, and, potentially, insights into their activities post listening.

Why Does Every Car Infotainment System Look So Crappy?

Why Does Every Car Infotainment System Look So Crappy? | online radio | Scoop.it

User interface design is hard, but we’ve been getting better at it over the years to the point where even a thermostat is easy to use. Automakers, however, seem to have their heads in the sand, taking their design inspiration for their infotainment consoles from old Winamp skins instead of any type of modern interface.

I’ve been car shopping recently, which means I’ve sat in a variety of models new and old with a salesperson attempting to justify why their shitty infotainment system—the little dashboard that usually controls at least the radio and phone options—is better than the competition. Pair that up with a number of rentals over the years and I’ve seen about every car infotainment system around. With a couple very rare exceptions, they’re universally horrible and feel like they’re designed by someone who hasn’t used a computer since 2000.

How radio consumption is changing among newer generations

How radio consumption is changing among newer generations | online radio | Scoop.it

Traditional media should not count on consumers to change their habits. Linear consumption will become less and less popular and may certainly disappear one day. Media refusing to adapt will disappear on the long run. There is no other possible outcome.

Radio consumption is dramatically changing nowadays, especially among younger generations. Discover the latest figures and trends.

 

There are two big lessons learned that I want to share with you :

Radio consumption has been stable for more than a decade, whatever the countryUsages are shifting among new generations (Y and Z)

Google Brings Podcasting to Play Music, Swinging at Apple's Dominance

Google Brings Podcasting to Play Music, Swinging at Apple's Dominance | online radio | Scoop.it

It’s Google’s turn now. The Alphabet company is getting ready to open a dedicated home for podcasts on its Google Play hub. Today the company is letting podcast creators upload shows to Google Play Music, its streaming service; it says listeners will be able to listen to those shows “in the coming months.” It will be, remarkably, the first native app for podcast listening on Android in the content market where Apple carries disproportionate weight.

 

The service is also retaining Songza’s human touch, coupling editors with Google’s algorithm to find shows. “The future of content is a lot less about how people find things and it’s much more about how things find people,” offered Roman.


“In many ways, it’s what the industry has wanted to happen,” said Adam Symson, chief digital officer of Scripps, a Google partner. “About the best way to discover new content is through word of mouth or the top charts on the iTunes podcast list.”

Sorting podcasts algorithmically is not as easy as sorting music — shows don’t fit into such neat genre boxes. Yet the podcast producers I spoke to were optimistic about Google’s odds, noting, in essence, if anyone can do it, Google can. Others have tried personalized podcasts, without much breakaway success. The app Swell did before being shut down, in July of last year, after Apple bought it.

This is the Year of Voice UI | Cooper [Prepa #VoiceUI]

This is the Year of Voice UI | Cooper [Prepa #VoiceUI] | online radio | Scoop.it
Talking to machines is primitive and frustrating, but it's gonna be huge

At Cooper, we care a lot about how to make technology work for humans. For much of our history, that has meant figuring out how to help people design great products for mice and keyboards, and then touch devices, and then for servicesthat involve many screens (or no screens at all!) and people over time.

And now there is this new interest in talking to computers. A lot of hype! In reality, conversational UIs are a primitive and frustrating experience. But they will end up being a much bigger deal than most people think.

Conversational UIs are a new medium for a big chunk of the UX profession (there are plenty of veterans, but it’s new to a lot of folks). Cooper’s goal this year is to explore and help refine the best practices for the industry, the way we have for 25 years. We’ve teamed up with the venerable SF-based design/dev shop Carbon Five to design and develop conversational applications for consumers and enterprises, starting with Alexa skills for Amazon Echo. You’ll see more in the Cooper Journal about that collaboration in the coming weeks and months.

But I also want to take a few minutes to describe why we think talking/chatting computers is a big deal, why we think voice UIs and conversational applications aren’t a flash in the pan, a passing fad.

Spotify may soon dominate music the way Google does search — this is why

Spotify may soon dominate music the way Google does search — this is why | online radio | Scoop.it
While competition online starts the same way as that in offline markets, my research shows it often settles very differently online.

Both have seen lots of competitors emerge in a new area underpinned by new technologies. But online, consolidation ends in a high-stakes winner-takes-most “title fight” between the two strongest players.

Read more: Why there’s no Pepsi in cyberspace

In search this was AltaVista vs Google, in social media it was MySpace vs Facebook and in business networking Spoke vs LinkedIn. The result is that the victor at this critical juncture goes on to dominate their corner of the market and becomes almost unassailable in that space.

Personalised radio service Rivet Radio adds podcasts, traffic news | MediaInfo

Personalised radio service Rivet Radio adds podcasts, traffic news | MediaInfo | online radio | Scoop.it

In June, I reviewedRivet Radio. The app was impressive, playing pieces of news and other content that you might be interested in: radio with a skip button, timely alerts and a wide range of content.

Rivet have been busy. Over the past month, they have released v3 of their app, which includes a set of UX upgrades including swiping and better search. Their app upgrade also added, for certain US cities, automated travel reports. "TruTraffic", as I understand it, uses your GPS co-ordinates and the direction of travel to return relevant traffic, within the audio, as you listen.

Today, Rivet add over two hundred podcasts (from NPR, APM and similar services), and adds those into the content mix; and for the first time they've added a "follow" button to further personalise the experience.

Radio on a connected device deserves to be more than just a live stream; but a personalised, malleable and interactive service. NPR One has shown that algorithms can produce engaging radio; and Rivet's service is rapidly heading towards being best in breed.

 

Key features:

Easily accessible playlist settings for increased personalizationLarger story displays for user on-the-goSwiping to skip or repeat storiesSimple search and booking markingEnhanced queue discovery
