STAGWELL MARKETING FRONTIERS
Make room, video. Audio is the hot new medium driving entertainment and engagement, and it has created an environment ripe for marketers to drive value out of audio advertising, social audio experiments, and scaled global audio content.
Stagwell believes that brands should move into audio as the next frontier to drive new dimensions of creative excellence, acquire valuable first party data, and create authentic opportunities for marketing integrations that tap into the fast-growing creator economy. Consumers are tuned into audio content – whether it’s podcasts, in-pod advertising or branded podcasts, voice search or viral sonic branding moments – there’s a lane for every brand to play.
The challenge? How this nascent space coalesces (or doesn’t) around core platforms, and how brands leverage new tech and data tools to understand their audiences and drive ROI.

Locaria, Stagwell’s translation and transcreation agency, argues localization strategies will be key to tapping into this trend.
