I was at the RAIN conference in Indianapolis catching up with a mix of Broadcast and Internet Radio executives. There was a lot of great content shared. The Internet Radio industry is definitely a numbers-driven market and there was plenty of data to chew on. With that said, sometimes data cannot capture the mood of an industry in transition, as well as a good metaphor. Paul Jacobs had just that metaphor for his panel entitled, “Mobile is the New Black.”
Two weeks ago a press release announcing the results of a STRATA Survey buried the lead. While its headline indicated a 45% jump in Ad Agency interest in digital video, the interest in “streaming/online radio saw a 53% increase.” There is no doubt that interest in video advertising is growing, but we can also see that Internet Radio is emerging from the novelty stage. It is becoming an important tool for reaching consumers.
There’s a XAPP Ad for That! Recent studies on consumer trends highlight the need for a shift in radio tactics. The results correlate well with other market trends that relate to music consumption patterns. Consumers listen to Internet radio on their mobile devices, but don’t typically think about terrestrial radio as an option outside of the car.
