Norman Pattiz and Tom Webster of Edison Research have conducted studies regarding the advertising of five national consumer brands. This was the first time campaigns for podcast advertisers were conducted. The studies focused on the consumers intent to purchase and brand recalls.

The studies found more than sixty percent of listeners did mention a particular grocery brand in the post campaign. This was significantly higher than the seven percent figure in the pre-study. Learn more about Norman Pattiz:

Unaided awareness of the products was 47 percent higher in the post-study in regards to a product offering financial services. An automobile product rose 37 percent while a lawn and garden product was 24 percent higher.

The post-study showed more than a third of the respondents were left with a favorable opinion of an automobile product and 22 percent stated they were highly likely to use a particular product for their lawn and garden. The awareness for an automobile product went up sixty percent while a restaurant for casual dining saw an increase of 76 percent.
