Frequently Asked Questions

How your brand sounds means everything in an audio ad. In order to ensure that your audio ad captures your brand’s sound, you first have to be able to articulate what makes your sound unique. In your voice over job posting, include descriptors that capture your vibe. For instance, is your brand young, vibrant and progressive? Luxurious, traditional and restrained? Make sure you say so. The more accurately you describe your brand voice, the more easily the voice actor will be able to deliver the best performance for you now, and for years to come.
Audio ads should be between 10-30 seconds long. Shorter audio ad formats tend to resonate better among younger demographics. Meanwhile older demographics respond better to longer formats. It is important to note that shorter ads don’t necessarily mean less time spent for brands. In one test, a 10-second ad actually out performed a 30-second version, and resulted in more time spent with the advertiser’s landing page.
Audio advertising allows your branded content to reach your intended audience at times where visual advertising cannot, such as during a commute, while at the gym etc. It allows you to appeal to the busy, on-the-go consumers who are hungry for content in this digital age. Audio ads allow the consumer to be in control. They choose the podcast or show they want to listen to, and then are served appropriate and related advertising content.
Even though some fundamentals, such as script writing and great voice over casting, are essential to both audio ads and radio commercials, some elements are different. Two qualities unique to audio ads are:
 
  1. Listenership is not restricted to your geographic region. You’ll have to consider a broader audience.
  2. Listeners are much more mobile. Traditional radio tends to reach people in the car, at home, or at work. However, when it comes to audio ads, listeners could be anywhere, as long as they have a connected device.
There are 3 main types of audio advertising: Live read, sponsorship, and a produced spot.
 
  1. Live read: The hosts of the podcast or other program read the script for the ads, usually in the beginning, middle and end of their show.
  2. Sponsorship: This is a type of audio ad where the ad may be introduced by the podcast host, but the actual content of the ad is read by the sponsored brand.
  3. Produced spot: Not far off from a television or radio spot, a produced audio ads contain all of the bells and whistles, including music, voice over, sound effects and more.
They are essentially the same concept. Digital advertising refers to all types of ads that use the Internet as the delivery method of their promotional marketing materials. An audio ad is just one of the many types of digital advertising, which also includes social media marketing, video, etc.
Without visuals to rely on, the music, background sounds (e.g. Foley) or special effects you select all need to work together to convey the mood and setting of your commercial. This careful attention to detail can mean the difference between catching a listener’s attention, or fading into background noise. Your ad voice should strike a connection with the listener and cause them to pause and take notice of your message. Use catchy lines and memorable jingles to enhance the uniqueness of your ad.
