Streaming audio platforms such as Spotify have become an increasingly attractive advertising medium due to their vast reach. For example, Spotify has over 456 million users in more than 180 global markets. This amount of exposure and participation is a crucial reason why dealers should explore digital audio advertisements. In addition, a recent Sonic Science study from Spotify concluded that Spotify and digital audio are more engaging and immersive than digital video, social media, television, and radio due to digital audio's inherent personalization and interactivity. This is beneficial for listeners, marketers, designers, and publishers.
Streaming audio advertising with Spotify provides a compelling new approach to reaching prospective automobile purchasers, including those in the deliberation stage. Those who hear auto commercials on Spotify are 52% more likely to buy the advertised vehicle.
