Keep Students and Families Engaged with Streaming Audio

With streaming audio, you can reach students and their families while they’re listening to music, podcasts, and news. Higher education programmatic advertising via streaming audio ads can run before, during, and after audio and can include a visual element featuring a call to action—like a button to your institution’s application page.


How Streaming Audio Works

Imagine you could reach students and their families everywhere—while they’re traveling, at practice, or relaxing at home. With streaming programmatic audio, you can stay in front of them on Spotify, Pandora, podcasts, and more.

For example, think of the many connected devices in your home—phones, smart speakers, tablets, and desktops. You can reach families based on their listening habits before, during, or after their favorite songs and episodes.

Because streaming audio works much like radio, it has a wide reach, but with measurability—allowing you to use clickable and trackable CTAs on cost-effective platforms where students and their families are already engaged.
