We are committed to helping independent podcasters benefit from the power of dynamic advertising. This helps your show make more money because you can monetize all your episodes (including your library of content), and it’s also better for the advertiser because it gives them more control over their message and who receives it. This service formats your episodes so they’re prepped and ready for dynamic ads. It includes removing old “baked-in” ads, adding transitions into the breaks, leveling the audio so it’s consistent, re-uploading the episodes to your podcast host provider and placing the ad markers.
We have two different options for formatting your podcast for dynamic ads.
Cost: $4 per episode (including 2-mid-rolls) $2 per additional mid-roll
Involves: Our editor will review your episodes on Megaphone and find two spots within each episode where a mid-roll spot could be inserted. We will also provide a Google sheet that lists each episode and the timecode for each mid-roll spot. You may need this if you ever decide to host your episodes with another podcast host provider. NOTE: There is no editing of your files with this option, we’re simply adding markers in Megaphone and finding two mid-roll spots with the content you’ve already released.
Cost: $8 per episode
Involves: Our editor physically edits your episode where the two mid-roll spots occur. We’ll include a custom bumper you create for us “We’ll be right back after this break” (or something like that), or some music that leads into the commercial break. We then save and export the file and re-upload it to Megaphone for you- adding the timecode for the mid-rolls spots and providing you with a Google sheet that lists each episode and the timecode for each mid-roll spot
Remove baked-in commercials (recommended) – $2 per episode
You must tell us which episodes have these commercial spots.
Audio Mastering – $3 per episode
Ensures all audio in your episode is consistent so dynamic ads don’t sound too loud or too soft. Available only with Advanced option.
