One of the most practical things Glenn does for you, is break down the average cost of 1,000 "listens" (or, impressions). Don't have time to listen to the full answer?
Did you know it costs about $25 per 1,000 impressions ("listens"), for a 60 second, mid-roll, baked-in ad read? You'll learn facts like that to help you craft your own campaign.
If you're not sure where to start, Glenn shares a helpful blueprint:
Aim at spending $25,000, which should get you about 1,000,000 impressions. This spend should spread across 6 to 12 podcasts. And he recommends that you spend it all on a "baked-in, mid-roll".
The benefit here is that you'll get a full test to learn whether or not podcasts ads will be effective for you.
The other big takeaway is how unique podcast ads are, vs. paid ads on social. You know how if a friend recommends a restaurant, product, or service, you're automatically more inclined to try it? That's what you get to tap into with podcast ads.
If you can create a partnership with a host who really likes, uses and believes in your product, they can heartily recommend it, and listeners will trust that recommendation.
Another helpful takeaway was the terminology used. You'll learn what types of ad placements there are, and what the difference is between dynamic or "baked-in" ads.
