True Native Media shares findings from frequency capping study

Press Release ·

True Native Media, the premier podcast representation agency, released new research today revealing challenges in the current iteration of frequency capping.

Led by Developer Anthony Firn, research showed it can be almost impossible to estimate the exact number of impressions being delivered on a frequency-capped campaign.

“For a non-frequency capped campaign, the impressions are going to be closely related to downloads. In a frequency-capped campaign, because you’re artificially dropping the number of impressions, the goal is to reduce the reach.”

One major finding from this study is that not all podcast listeners are created equal. Some listeners will listen to their favorite show as the episode is published, while others will binge an entire podcast over the span of a few days. Understanding and identifying each group is the first challenge that needs to be addressed to make a stochastic prediction about impressions.

“When we’re thinking about creating any predictive capabilities or forecasting, it needs to be complex. It can’t just be as elementary as it really is right now. And while I do absolutely believe that frequency capping should exist… I believe the technology is not there yet.”
