Online Content Sees a Major Boost with Audio Streaming

2 minute read

Most of us have been home since mid-March. With fewer trips outside of the house, we’ve likely had fewer interactions with broadcast radio. It’s no surprise that consumers are streaming more while at home, but a recent report from Comscore shows just how much.

According to newly released data from Comscore’s Total Home Panel, from the week of December 30, 2019, through the week of June 15, 2020, total average daily audio streaming hours dramatically rose by a third (32%), with the spike beginning in mid-March.

Spotify, iHeartRadio, and Pandora account for the three largest streaming services, with iHeartRadio coming in second for total listening hours, posting an 11% increase from January to May. Pandora experienced the largest increase, with in-home audio streaming hours up a whopping 42%.

It’s important to note that many households are accessing digital audio at home through their connected TV devices, including streaming sticks/boxes, gaming consoles, and smart TVs.

In that category, Amazon Fire TV has the most audio streaming at home (more than 67 million hours in May), while Amazon Echo holds second place, with 48 million hours of streaming, followed by Google Home, with 14 million hours of audio in May.

So, what does this mean for your business? If digital isn’t included within your media plan, with a particular focus on streaming and connected TV services, you may want to reconsider your approach.

Our Take

Nobody likes to hear people squawk about marketing. So, we wrote it all down for you.

Think B2B Plus B2C

All successful companies are customer-obsessed. They know their customers and work hard to serve the needs they have today and those of tomorrow. The best companies have the humility to know that customers choose what products they buy or how to spend their time. They also know that customer loyalty is connected to customer satisfaction. Have I told you anything you haven’t heard before? Not yet. But I’m getting to my point, and it’s some of the best advice I have for business-to-business (B2B) companies.
