What is Instream +?
InStream+ is Bauer’s pioneering digital audio product that uses first party data, allowing advertisers to target online logged-in listeners with fewer, but more relevant, ads.
InStream+ utilises listener data held by Absolute, Kiss, Heat, Planet Rock and Kerrang Radio on location, gender and age, replacing standard on-air ad breaks with highly targeted online audio advertisements.
The advertising technology runs across App (and desktop/mobile for Absolute Radio), alongside an optional clickable visual, directing traffic straight to a location of the advertiser’s choice.
- 12M monthly Uk listens
- The KISS app has about 300k monthly users generating 2.5m sessions and 1.4m hours of listening.(Numbers correct as of October 2017)
- 250,000 premium user logins every month
- 500,000 listens via app and desktop (standard)
- (Day and time of day also available)
The media cost for a digital audio campaign starts at £5000. Please contact DigitalAudioWorks for an optimised plan and costs.
Production costs are in addition to the media cost and start from £600. Please contact the team at our sister company Maple Street Studios for further information.
