How do I promote my business on podcasts?

Just as your business has a refined target audience, different podcasts have varying listener demographics, even if the topic is the same.

Identify shows with the right audience and send a podcast outreach email that highlights why you would make a great sponsor or guest. Keep track of responses and when you get the all-important 'yes' make sure you know what topics you're going to cover or what you're going to say in your ad.

How do I advertise on a podcast?

First of all, consider the different placements of podcast ads. These include pre-roll, mid-roll and post-roll. Each has pros and cons and some are more expensive than others, so do your research before reaching out. Next, you'll need to find the right podcasts to advertise on.

Once you know your audience, search using Rephonic to find relevant podcasts and make sure you look at the download numbers, niche and audience location.

How effective is podcast advertising?

Several surveys have been completed on the effectiveness of podcast advertising, and it has been found that podcast listeners have over four times better brand recall than from other widely used forms of digital advertising.

Another discovery is that over half of listeners are somewhat or much more likely to buy from brands that advertise via podcasts.

How much does it cost to sponsor a podcast?

Podcast ad rates are calculated on CPM, or Cost Per Mille (per 1000 listeners). These rates vary but here's a good rule of thumb:

  • $15 for a 10-second ad CPM
  • $18 for a 30-second ad CPM
  • $25 for a 60-second ad CPM

Is it better to be a guest or pay for an advert on a podcast?

Whether it is best to get featured on a podcast as a guest or via an advert depends on your time, your authority in a particular industry, your budget and your objective.

If you have expertise or an interesting story to share with the audience and can commit to the the time is takes to be interviewed, you could consider being a guest.

If you have a larger budget and are looking to build long-term brand awareness, you could think about running ads over multiple episodes.
