Podcasters looking for monetization opportunities look no further than Blubrry’s new programmatic advertising. Available to all Blubrry hosting customers today, regardless of your show’s size or how long you’ve been podcasting, you can monetize your show immediately.
You can easily set it, forget it and earn revenue on every episode. Podcasters aren’t responsible for choosing the companies to advertise in their shows – it’s all programmatic (automatic) and done with our ad partner SoundStack.
All you have to do is sign up. Most shows will begin receiving ad placements immediately, but volume will grow in the first 60-90 days as the advertising platform learns your posting patterns and matches your show’s episodes with the best advertisers.
Our partner, SoundStack, has been perfecting audio ad delivery since 2010, and is an expert in this unique technology. Blubrry started as an advertising agency for podcasters in 2005, before most people had even heard the term “podcast.” As we’ve evolved, so has the industry. Now we’re excited to provide a simple but powerful advertising opportunity to help every podcaster put money in their pockets.
