Intrado Digital Media Introduces Podcast Monitoring and Reporting Through its Notified Platform

Dec 19, 2019

Newest Notified feature lets PR and marketing professionals effectively search, monitor and measure podcasts for brand mentions and media exposure

OMAHA, Neb., Dec. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intrado, a global leader in technology-enabled services, today announced the addition of podcast monitoring to Notified, the first end-to-end communications workflow automation platform. Together with print, online news and social media, Notified’s listening, measurement and alert capabilities now include the ability to monitor podcasts from around the world. Public relations and marketing professionals now have more opportunity to look across a broader spectrum of media for relevant mentions of their brand.

“The podcast industry generated an estimated $479 million in revenue1 in 2018 and is expected to grow to more than $1 billion by 2021. In 2019, nearly one-third of Americans listened to podcasts monthly2. Clearly this is a medium that PR and marketing professionals cannot afford to ignore,” said Ben Chodor, President of Intrado Digital Media. “Our mission with Notified is to arm our customers with the data and insights they need to make informed decisions about their campaign strategies. Adding podcast monitoring to our platform is the next step in ensuring they have access to the entire media ecosystem, all within a single platform.”
