Liberated Syndication Inc. (LSYN) ("Libsyn" or "the Company"), the industry's leading podcast hosting platform and advertising marketplace, today provided an update on podcast advertising rates.
These rates, which are denoted as cost per thousand or CPM, are published monthly by the Company's subsidiary, AdvertiseCast, the industry's leading podcast advertising marketplace connecting advertisers to podcasters. The data is derived from actual sales data from across the 2,200+ podcasts in the AdvertiseCast marketplace.
For November 2021, the average CPM rate for a 60-second spot was $23.35.
"Podcast advertising rates held steady in November, remaining relatively flat as we move into December." said Dave Hanley, Chief Revenue Officer at AdvertiseCast. "We believe rates overall will hold steady through the end of 2021. The addition of Podgo to Libsyn's AdvertiseCast marketplace will introduce new monetization opportunities for advertisers across bundles of emerging shows at competitive rates. We believe this will drive great performance and engagement for brands in the future."
Historical rates can be found on the AdvertiseCast podcast marketplace website at: https://www.advertisecast.com/podcast-advertising-rates
The Company will continue to announce these figures on a monthly basis to enable podcasters, advertisers, and the investor community to readily monitor market pricing and provide greater insight into advertising monetization within the podcasting industry.
