Why it matters
Audio is a compelling way to tell stories, arguably more than the written word. It is more intimate; it can use in-field sound to create an immersive experience; music can be added to enhance emotional impact; and expert and local voices can be included to provide additional depth and character.
Evergreen content: Creating compelling individual episodes are a similar investment to hosting journalists, however you get the added benefit that you own the content, and it’s evergreen, so will continue to grow and get exposure in perpetuity.
Audio is a good bet. It is the only medium in which you can multi-task so it is here to stay! Because of that people engage for longer. Podcast listeners engage for 30-45mins on average, more than 5x as long as destination videos.
Cost + Time Effective
Audio is less costly to produce than video, and easier to get potential visitors to engage with because they can multi-task. It’s asking less of their time, but you are getting more of their attention.
Promotional Value: Based on download numbers a 30 min episode has a relative promotional value of $750cpm ($25cpm x 30x1min segments) = > $7500 per episode (based on 10,000 downloads).
