Auddia Inc. Announces Final Q2 Metrics for Its Flagship faidr (TM) Mobile App Exceeding Target Goals

Press Release · Boulder, CO, USA ·

Auddia Inc. (NASDAQ:AUUD) (NASDAQ:AUUDW) (“Auddia” or the “Company”), developer of a proprietary AI platform for radio and innovative technologies for podcasts that is reinventing how consumers engage with audio, today announced that in Q2 of 2022, its flagship faidr mobile app exceeded its target goals, receiving more than 80,000 downloads, achieving a cost-per-install of less than $3, and surpassing 40,000 monthly active users.

“The goal of our initial marketing effort for faidr was twofold. First, we wanted to demonstrate that consumers were interested in downloading an app that gives them control over the radio listening experience, and second, we wanted to build an audience that we could leverage to see how consumers use faidr. Real world usage data is invaluable for optimizing the user experience, which is a prerequisite for driving the highest possible subscription-conversion metrics,” said Auddia CEO Michael Lawless. “We were encouraged by the 90-day launch results we provided for faidr in mid-May and are further encouraged by the final Q2 results of this initial marketing push. We far exceeded our initial targets for downloads, cost-per-install, and MAU’s.”

The Company is now focused on an iterative process of analyzing user behavior in the app, using that data to prioritize product enhancements, and analyzing the consumer response to those product changes. This process is already yielding solid improvements in key usage statistics, and management is encouraged that this optimization process will result in user engagement and subscription conversion metrics that are comparable, or superior, to the early subscription conversion rates reported by other media app category leaders.

“We are pleased with our execution to date in bringing this unique app to market,” said Theo Romeo, Auddia’s VP of Marketing. “We’ve spent the last few months improving every aspect of our faidr go-to-market strategy, leveraging the user data we have, making data-driven decisions about new features, fine tuning our messaging to users, measuring the impact of each change we make, and seeing immediate improvements in our key-usage metrics. Going forward, internal metrics tracking, and external reporting, will be centered on end-user behavior within the faidr app, from initial app downloads through to time spent listening and ultimately to subscription conversions and long-term subscriber retention. All operational activities, including product-development work, will be aimed at driving these metrics above industry-benchmark levels.”

The Company, in conjunction with the process of optimizing usage data through product enhancements, will conduct a series of subscription trials with its existing user base in preparation for announcing initial subscription conversion rates and 2023 revenue guidance at the time of filing its third quarter 10Q.
