Interactivity Rate for NextRadio Cards Surpasses Industry Norms

Dec 10, 2015, 17:05 ET from NextRadio

INDIANAPOLIS, Dec. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent test of NextRadio® Cards, used to promote station or advertiser initiatives, saw an average interactivity rate of 1.8%, compared to average display ad click through rates of .020%.* 

NextRadio Cards provide an additional way to present station and advertiser messaging.  They operate much like a billboard, displaying under all music and/or program schedule information.  Cards complement the enhanced ads on the Now Playing screen inside the NextRadio app to offer a rich content experience to the consumer. 

A recent three month test on two TagStation licensed radio stations revealed the high level of brand exposure and interactivity Cards enable within the NextRadio experience.  The results of the test also support the hypothesis that consumers will scroll down in the app to see what additional content they can uncover.

"We are excited to share these results with broadcasters, it starts to shape what stations can offer to their advertisers or can help with station promotions, app awareness and other messages they want to get to their listeners," said Paul Brenner, President of NextRadio.
