Parks Associates and TargetSpot will co -host a research webcast, "TargetSpot Digital Audio Insights," on Thursday, June 9, presenting detailed findings about the impact of Internet radio advertising, synergies with digital and broadcast advertising, and behavior of digital audio listeners.


According to Parks Associates, Internet radio can more than double consumers' ad response rates when included in an advertising campaign, with 52% of digital audio listeners recalling an Internet radio ad and 40% of those responding to an ad.

This webcast details TargetSpot's groundbreaking research demonstrating that among U.S. consumers, the combination of time spent and engagement with digital audio translates to high ad recall and response rates, online and offline.

Additionally, those who listen regularly to digital audio are a highly desirable audience - they are tuned -in to multiple devices for significant amounts of time, are deeply engaged with the content, and demonstrate high recall and response rates for ads.
