What is Spotify Advertising

Spotify needs no introduction. Spotify has revolutionized how we consume audio over the last decade and has become the largest online streaming platform for everything audio. Spotify is the go-to place for listening to anything - from your favorite Coldplay music to exciting new Joe Rogan's podcasts, and anywhere - while you are driving in your car or in the kitchen making dinner.

Why should you advertise on Spotify?

Spotify's advertising mission is to modernize audio advertising to deliver growth and impact for both advertisers and creators. In line with the mission, Spotify managed to build a range of advertising capabilities over the years with an ad studio that is at par with the google ad platform and facebook's business manager. With just $250, any business can get started with Spotify Advertising campaigns, and connect with Spotify users, adding a new dimension to digital marketing. Here are a few reasons why you should advertise on Spotify.

Large Reach

Spotify has seen 422 MAU in Q1 2022. Although small compared to Facebook's and Google's audience sizes, the reach for Spotify advertising growing at a faster rate than the market leaders.

Excellent Audience targeting

Spotify has taken podcast advertising a notch above any other platform. You can place an ad depending on the genre of the podcast episode Spotify users are listening to and target the relevant episode content ranging from business, and finance to pets, and mental well-being.

Clickable Call-to-action

Driving action is an important goal of any advertisement. Ad script or an Ad creative that can communicate what you want the user to do can lead to desirable user behavior to business.

Murf Studio vs Spotify Ad Studio

Spotify Ad studio gives you a simple and budget-friendly route to reach out to listeners. However, it lacks a quick turnaround to create audio ads from the scratch. Creating a Google ad (Text Ad/Banner Ad) or a Facebook ad requires copy & visuals, enabling quick turnaround times. Spotify needs a little more than a copy & visuals. Spotify ads need voiceover for marketers to be live-ready.

As long as the advertiser commits $250 Ad spend, Spotify ads studio will source a voice artist, provide a massive library of licensed soundtracks to choose from and render your final audio. All of this for free of cost. However, the Spotify ads platform takes 24-48 hours to deliver the voiceover. Or you'll have to hire a voiceover studio to create the perfect ad. If you are not satisfied with the outcome of the ad created by Spotify's advertising platform, it might take another 24-48 hours to get back with a quality ad. The process of creating a voiceover with Spotify is time-consuming and prone to errors, with a possibility of the core idea of the script being lost in translation. The delay this might cause in launching your ad campaign and subsequent ad campaigns is a cause of concern.
