Embedded (hyperlinked) ad within our podcast

An audio advertisement can be inserted into the episode itself. Usually the host will read the copy the company has provided. The audience has grown to trust the host and is familiar with his/her voice. This allows for a more seamless and less intrusive advertisement.

This advertisement is also also hyperlinked within the user’s phone. So when they are listening to your ad, if they are interested they can press the screen and it goes directly to your website.

Listening Platforms

Although iTunes is the most notable podcast interface. It is important to not neglect the other major platforms. Stitcher is number 2 as a podcast platform and google play is making big moves to host podcasts.


Social Media

We pay great attention to our social media accounts. We prefer to go after our followers in a laser focused fashion. We actively pursue interactions with those in the landscape architecture industry and nurture those interactions. With each episode our guest themselves bring new followers.
