In the ever-evolving landscape of digital marketing, podcasts have emerged as a powerful medium for reaching engaged audiences. Emysound is excited to introduce our latest product: the Podcast Ads Catalogue, a comprehensive database of podcast advertisements aired across more than 5,000 podcasts. This innovative tool is designed to empower podcasters, businesses, and marketers with unparalleled insights into the world of podcast advertising.

How it works?

The Podcast Ads Catalogue offers an intuitive dashboard that allows users to search and listen to a vast array of podcast ads. Users can filter these ads across multiple dimensions, including advertisers, categories, and specific podcasts. This level of granularity ensures that users can pinpoint exactly what they need, whether it’s for competitive analysis, market research, or content inspiration.

Designed to seamlessly integrate with our user-friendly dashboard, the Podcast Ads Catalog allows customers to search, filter, and listen to a vast array of podcast advertisements currently in rotation across more than 5,000 different podcasts.

Who can benefit?


For podcasters, understanding the advertising landscape is crucial. By analyzing ads featured on similar podcasts, podcasters can gain insights into which companies are targeting their audience demographics. This knowledge can aid in closing advertising deals with companies looking to reach similar audiences.

Businesses and Marketers

Our product is an invaluable tool for businesses aiming to monitor competitors’ advertising strategies. Users can easily see how competitors are leveraging podcast ad space, including the number of different podcasts a company advertises on, the timing of the ad (pre-roll, mid-roll, or end), and the nature of the ad placement (dynamic or baked-in). This comprehensive view allows businesses to refine their own advertising strategies and stay ahead of the competition.

Understanding Ad Placement Strategies

To fully appreciate the power of our Podcast Ads Catalogue, it’s essential to understand the different types of ad placements and strategies used in podcast advertising.

Pre-Roll Ads: These ads are played at the beginning of a podcast episode. They capture the audience’s attention early but need to be engaging to prevent listeners from skipping.

Mid-Roll Ads: Mid-roll ads are inserted in the middle of the podcast episode. They tend to be more effective because they are delivered when the audience is already engaged with the content. However, their success depends on seamless integration with the podcast content.

End-Roll Ads: These ads appear at the end of a podcast episode. While they may have lower engagement rates compared to pre-roll and mid-roll ads, they still serve as a valuable touchpoint, particularly for listeners who stay until the end.
