Host-Read Ads 57: Host Trust & The Personal Endorsement

Today I want to remind my audience about the power behind host-read ads and how including a personal endorsement, also known as a PE, increases traction for brands. Host-read content continues to be a proven strategy for seasoned ad buyers, because it's the best kind of influencer marketing — and that's supported by Nielsen research which found host-read ads lead to stronger lifts in key equity metrics, such as a 67% increase in brand affinity. In today's podcast landscape, Dynamic Ads have taken over- please do not believe all those agencies and networks who only sell DAs. As they tout, DAs are stronger and better than host-read ads. 100% false information, and I wish they would stop saying it. Audiences listen to podcasts because they trust and want to hear from their favorite hosts. When an ad is host-read and authentic, there is a 50% increase to purchase from brands over DAs.

Host-Read Ads 56: Podcasting Advertising Requires Patience Part II

I want to remind brands and agencies that podcasts are on demand and not everyone simulcasts. Podcast ads are not TV commercials or radio ads that are seen or heard immediately. Therefore, you need patience and a strong message when advertising on podcasts, AND you must implement ALL podcast tools to gauge traction properly. Reminder - in today's landscape, it's safe to say that it takes at least 12 touchpoints to turn a lead into a sale, and it's high time we all embrace this reality. The concept of "touchpoints" refers to the various interactions a potential customer has with your brand or product before they make a purchasing decision. The average touchpoint is considered to be 8, and even this can vary between 1 - 50 depending on the length of the buying stage. Patience is mandatory if brands are going to buy podcast advertising. Why? Because brands have to allow people to download podcast episodes, listen to them, hear their brand elsewhere, or see it and then

This Week in Space 87: One Lunar Fizz Please

As more people take tourist jaunts into space, and eventually into orbit for longer stays, social drinking will become part of the experience—even if it's just that bottle of congratulatory champagne. Besides the odd effects of zero-g on fizzy drinks in the stomach, the effects of imbibing alcohol cause a wide variety of risks and concerns. And while this is not entirely unknown territory—the Russians have been known to drink cognac from time to time (and are strongly suspected of taking vodka into space), the data is slim. Space alcohol expert Colleen McLeod Garner has studied this for years and written articles on the topic and will join us to discuss the joys and potential downsides of the consumption of booze in the final frontier—no fake IDs allowed!

This Week in Space 89: Who's in Charge in Space?

With an increase in commercial and private spaceflight comes the need to regulate it, and the FAA has had a major role in newspace flight rules to date... but should it be the primary regulator moving ahead?

This Week in Space 74: Adrift in the Kuiper Belt?

For decades, all the planets of the solar system had been reconnoitered—except Pluto. That last planetary body had been seen, at best, as just a faint smudge by the Hubble Space Telescope. Then, in 2015, the New Horizons spacecraft sped by Pluto, sending back a swath of exciting images and science data, transforming our view of the planet. It subsequently visited the Kuiper Belt object Arrakoth and may rendezvous with another, more distant body—or not. NASA's new budget seems to spell the end of active science for New Horizons, something that does not sit well with the program's Principal Investigator, Dr. Alan Stern. Join Alan as he speaks with us about this very exciting project and what it may take to keep it alive. Hosts: Rod Pyle and Tariq Malik Guest: Alan Stern Downl

Its continual third-place finishes in the console market is what kicked off Microsoft's game studio buying spree: Sony was outspending it on exclusives Phil Spencer also admitted to what I think is Xbox's biggest failure, it's lack of an "organic" strategy for mobile. <li

This Week in Space 66: Look to the Skies For a Warning

Space Ace Leonard David joins the conversation on This Week in Space. NASA has released preliminary results of their Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena report, and they are nearly the opposite of the DoD's previous report. NASA found very few incidents to be truly "unidentified," though this report was notably based solely on unclassified material and was in essence, a study-of-how-to-study UFO data... so we are left continuing to look to the skies.
