Automatic Ads allow you to monetize your Libsyn podcast by dynamically inserting ads where you want them placed within your podcast. Our Automatic Ads program allows you to choose where you want ads to run — anywhere in the episode — pre-roll, mid-roll, or post-roll. Unlike live reads, Automatic Ads are just that — automatic! Nothing for you to record, and because Automatic Ads are not baked into your episodes, you have the ability to monetize your back catalog. Advertisers enjoy pinpoint targeting, and you enjoy a monthly payout.

The Model is Simple and Very Competitive.


Your earning potential depends on your audience size. Certain genres/categories are in higher demand, so shows with a smaller audience can still generate strong revenue. 

For instance, if your podcast gets 10,000 monthly downloads and you open a few ad slots per episode, you could potentially earn a few hundred dollars per month.

Automatic Podcast Ads FAQs

We still love host-read ads, but they are not for everyone. Generally speaking, automated ads demand a lower CPM (cost per thousand downloads) than host-read ads, but they also take a lot less effort!  Many shows use automated ads as backfill for unsold host-read ad slots or as a source of revenue for older episodes (“back catalog”). You don’t have to pick one or the other — you can make revenue from both!

 

EPISODE LENGTH NUMBER OF ADS PER EPISODE
<15 1-2
15-14 min. 2-3
45-60 min. 3-5
60 min+ Depending on length, use your judgment
You are able to specify a set number of pre-roll and post-roll slots, plus select ad locations and number of slots for mid-rolls.

For podcasters who are exclusively represented by AdvertiseCast for host-read advertising, the podcaster receives 70% of the advertising revenue from campaigns that get placed in your show, otherwise the standard is 60%.

Once you sign up for automated ads, an account will be created for you in Libsyn’s AdvertiseCast Marketplace (if you do not already have an account). You can receive monthly automated payments directly into your PayPal account or your bank account (via ACH) approximately 30-45 days after the end of the month. It’s that easy!
