-How or When to add Advertising to your Show -
Optionally, you can have advertising to your show from your first episode on Spreaker, but is up to you and your plan
If you are wanting growing income from your show, you need to plan for that.
Many choose to build audience first, then slowly get into advertising, keep in mind audience size is important to gaining revenue from advertising as is most of the time based on a CPM model or getting paid based on an increment of 1,000 download/plays of your show.
Ad’s can be either baked in “Host Reads”, typically only available to large audience shows in the 10’s of thousands range.
The other type is the monetization offered by Spreaker with every paid pro account utilizes Dynamic Ad Insertion and we do all the ad sales for you. You can enable Preroll, Midroll and Postroll Ads and it will just do it all for you and you get a revenue share on it. Just need to set your Midroll positions in each of your episodes.

PANEL: Podcast Marketing for Every Buyer
Live host-read sponsorship messages are the traditional podcast advertising format. But an array of advertising solutions, formats, pricing models, and technology have developed to serve different marketing needs and expand the range of buyers. In 2017, host-read ads represented 70% of revenue, leaving room for pre-recorded ads. 42% of podcast revenue came from sponsor messages automatically injected into current and past shows. Programmatic audio is entering the podcast realm. Branded podcasting grew from 1.5% to 6.5% in a year. This panel explores and untangles how podcasting serves marketers of all types.
