Turning off your screen and plugging in your headphones; is digital audio becoming more effective than visual digital media advertising?
The average click-through rate for a display advert is less than 0.40% across all industries (Hubspot).
Let that sink in for a second.
Less than 0.40%.
Display, social, and search ad campaigns are being scrolled by, skipped and ignored easily and almost intuitively. It’s fair to say that advertising to consumers within these oversaturated digital mediums is losing its effect.
The digital audio market, on the other hand, is one of the least cluttered and most effective spaces in digital advertising.
Digital audio, which is audio content streamed using a connected device, is a rapidly growing digital market. New trends and technologies, such as dedicated streaming devices, voice activation and podcasts are driving continued audience growth and advertiser interest. Consumers are turning to voice-activated devices where they may have used a screen in the past, putting their phone down and instead, turning up the volume & listening to audio content on their connected device.
79% of digital audio consumption takes place while people are engaged in activities where visual media cannot reach them (IAB). So, if no one sees your brand, it’s time to consider how they will hear it.
The opportunity to build your brand’s sound, redirecting your digital ad spend from visual media to audio, is tempting. Over 1 million people in Ireland listen to digital audio every week, (Source: JNLR) 75% of audio listeners think advertising is a fair price to pay for the content they are getting (Edison Research) and adverts in audio streams have a listen-through rate of 95% (DAX).
