The need for more consumer engagement has become marketing gospel in recent years. Much of this interest is related to the rise in social media, but the concept of engagement has moved well past that domain.

The question for publishers is, “how can you help advertisers with this goal?”

Osher offers a perspective on how XAPP Ads not only help NPR’s sponsors, but also will be used to help listeners more easily connect with content. Watch the full video interview here.
The best time to prompt a new app install is when a consumer is already engaged with their mobile device. Facebook and Twitter users have shifted sharply to mobile, which means a lot of opportunities to encourage new app installs. Mobile Audio, whether from Internet radio pure plays, podcasters or live streams from broadcasters, offer a similar opportunity.
