Magellan AI, the podcast media planning and measurement platform, today announced support for measuring the impact of traffic coming from YouTube alongside podcast and streaming audio.
“Host-read ads embedded within video, especially on YouTube, have become a much bigger part of podcast advertisers’ playbook, and publishers rightfully want to show the power of their podcasts across all media,” said Cameron Hendrix, CEO and co-founder of Magellan AI. “Analyzing audience response coming from YouTube alongside the response driven by podcasts is essential to get a complete picture.”
Magellan AI’s methodology – analyzing data from podcasts alongside traffic directly to an advertiser’s site – enables media buyers to more accurately assess the impact of buying ads on podcasts that also have a presence on YouTube. Magellan AI’s dashboard also offers advertisers and agencies the flexibility to measure the impact of YouTube traffic on either a last touch or equal credit basis.
“In podcasting, there has historically been a gap in analytics with video viewership and results, leading to an over-reliance on modeling or guessing. We’re excited to bring a data-forward solution into the marketplace,” adds Jim Ballas, Head of Publisher Partnerships at Magellan AI.
