If you are looking into advertising on podcasts, podcast ad rates (or CPM — Cost Per Thousand) are probably top of mind. To this end, we give you the March 2024 Podcast Advertising Rates.

Each month Libsyn Ads publishes the prior month’s rates to allow advertisers and podcasters to monitor market pricing and to foster insight into podcasting advertising as a monetization vehicle. 

The data is derived from actual sales data across Libsyn Ad’s network of thousands of shows.

“The recent rebranding from Libsyn’s AdvertiseCast to Libsyn Ads received tremendous enthusiasm from attendees at Podcast Movement Evolutions in Los Angeles last month. This strategic move shines a spotlight on Libsyn as the foremost podcast destination for podcast creators and advertisers,” noted Dave Hanley, Chief Revenue Officer of Libsyn.

“As we head into the busy ad buying season, we’re seeing a growing diversity of advertisers across sectors enter the podcast advertising realm as marketers increasingly recognize the effectiveness and value of the medium for expanding reach and driving consumer action.”
