They used some well-known brands, launched new messaging, and least known brands with the aim of increasing awareness and trial. Before they ran the podcast advertising surveys, an online survey by audiences of leading brands was conducted. Four to six weeks were allocated for each of the five products with the same methodology in each.

The results were significantly positive. The report on the event was released on the 9th of February 2016 which included the outcome of the advertising tests with five original national consumer brands over five product and service categories. The main findings were;

  • More than 60% of the listeners pointed out a particular grocery brand in the post-campaign compared to the 7% in the pre-study.
  • Product awareness significantly increased from pre- study to post-study in different fields. 47% for financial services for the product, 37% for the automobile market and 24% for the lawn and garden products.
  • The post-study revealed that more than one-third of the respondents were favorable to the auto aftermarket product which was an increase from the 18% of the pre-study. 16% in the pre-study expressed they were likely to use the lawn and garden product, which went up to 22% in the post-study.
  • A message campaign for an automobile aftermarket product increased by 60% from pre to post-study and a 76% increase for a casual dining restaurant. All this brought about by awareness of the products.

The research results validate the approach in advertising and measurements used by Podcast One and Edison Research.
