Barometer Partners with Flightpath to Drive Revenue For Publishers

Press Release · Hamilton, ON, Canada ·

Flightpath, the leading provider of predictive analytics and podcast ad inventory management solutions, announced its partnership with Barometer, the best in class provider of brand suitability and safety solutions for digital audio. This partnership enhances control and transparency at a management level, providing podcast publishers with powerful advanced ad performance forecasting as well as invaluable audio intelligence around brand suitability and trust.

Sales teams will be able to better package and serve brands with access to Flightpath’s Trusted Twelve Month View of Available Inventory, which features a real-time view of podcast ad inventory across all supported podcasting platforms. But now the availability they pull in real-time is tied to Barometer’s proprietary tool that reviews show content to measure risk in categories compiled by the Global Alliance for Responsible Media (GARM), such as adult content, profanity, spam, harmful content, and more. Teams can package shows and/or episodes in real-time in Barometer, confirm and package based on availability data using Flightpath, and get IOs out the door that are fully brand safe and contextually relevant to a brand or buyer’s needs.

As advertising in the podcast industry continues to surge, more and more brands are entering the space. However, concerns about brand safety abound. With the Flightpath-Barometer partnership, companies are provided a better view of where and when they can connect their brand to trusted influencers and content, ensuring greater opportunities for building brand awareness and affinity with desired audience – safely and effectively.
