- The podcast space is growing quickly. Thanks to modern technologies such as smartphones, Bluetooth-enabled cars, faster streaming speeds, Apple Car Play, podcasts are becoming ubiquitous and mainstream. One in five Americans (57+ million) now listens to podcasts every month.
- Podcast advertising is booming, but it’s still in its infancy and this means the market is at a steep discount. Think about other platforms that have matured over the years like Google Adwords and Facebook Ads. They started off very inexpensive ($0.10 a click), but when they hit scale and found mass demand, the rates sky rocketed. This happens in every marketplace over time and podcast advertising will be no different. So, get in early and enjoy the low CPM rates while they last.
- You get long term marketing exposure with podcast ads. Podcast ads are typically read by the host and baked into the audio file. This means your ad will be permanently recorded and played for years to come.
- Podcasts in general tend to be highly engaging mediums for delivering messages. Unlike ads on web pages and television, people enjoy listening to ads on podcasts. Podcast advertisements are five times as effective as web ads Most ads are live read by the host making it a more intimate and personal experience. And since they put their trust in the hosts of their favourite podcasts, they’re much more receptive to the brands and products they promote.

Pre-roll and Mid-roll ads
When advertisers purchase ad space on a podcast, they usually choose pre-roll ads (play at the beginning of the episode) and mid-roll ads (play at the end of the episode), and post-rolls play at the end.
These ads are based on a CPM (“cost per mile”) model of advertising. CPM is the cost of 1,000 ad impressions (or plays.) This structure works best for bigger shows (5,000 + downloads per episode).
Here is the current industry standard pricing for podcast advertisers according to AdvertiseCast:
- $18 per 1,000 listens (CPMs) for a 15 second pre-roll ad
- $25 per 1,000 listens (CPMs) for a 60 second mid-roll ad
CPA (cost per acquisition) is the other advertising model in podcasting. This structure bases profits on the number of conversions instead of impressions and works best for smaller podcasts since there is no upfront cost.
These prices are just the industry-standard rates — they can vary based on the network or podcast host selling the ad space.
