Summary: Neuroscience study finds ads on Pandora outperform TV & radio spots

Short summary: Neuroscience study finds ads on Pandora outperform TV & radio spots

Neuro-Insight (a neuro-marketing company — how cool is that), measured people’s brain activity in real time while they were exposed to ads while listening to their playlists. They found that audio advertisements triggered a better emotional response related to long-term memory (Swant, Marty).

The advertisements played during the Pandora session were:

  • 49% better than advertisements played on the radio
  • 36% better than television commercials
  • 29% better than mobile video ads (like the ones we get on YouTube).

Many advertisers are interested in this because experienced marketers know that brand names that get stuck in long-term memory (think of things like jingles) impact our purchasing decisions.
