Programmatic audio combines the power of ads served on audio platforms with AI ad-buying and targeting technology. Your ads will play in a screen-free audio environment during content like podcasts, audiobooks, and streaming music.

Leveraging AI technology takes this to the next level by finding and purchasing audio ad inventory during the content your target audience is most likely to listen to.

Audio advertising serves ads to your audience during their favourite audio content on streaming platforms, like music, podcasts, or audiobooks. These ads tend to be more immersive and are retained more often by the listener since they occur in a screen-free environment.

Unlike traditional radio, advertisers can leverage the same data as from other advertising channels like display, native, and CTV to target their customer. The result is an immersive experience of audio with the power of data-driven audience targeting.
