Attribution Challenge in Audio

We just returned from The Radio Show in Orlando. Good news — attendance up year over year. The buzz was very loud on the topic of “radio’s attribution gap”.

The common belief was that radio did not suffer from an effectiveness problem, instead, radio suffers from an inability to provide timely, cost-effective, empirical, and real-time data on ad campaign performance.

Today, attribution is typically measured by survey style studies. This form of attribution study has two key disadvantages:

  1. Results are available in 1–2 months after the campaign was delivered. So if the campaign was not performing to expectations, it is too late to do anything about it.
  2. These studies are quite expensive typically costing tens of thousands of dollars, which just leads to higher costs of an ad buy.

In a perfect world, attribution data should be direct and accessible in real-time.

Well, we have not yet fixed the “perfect world” issue, but we have solved the attribution challenge in audio via voice engagement.
