Latin American digital audio specialist Audio.ad announced the launch of AudioTrade, its own programmatic demand-side platform. AudioTrade will allow agencies and advertisers to purchase digital audio advertising for online radio, music streaming, and podcasts. Audio spots, companion banners, and dynamic ads will all be available formats, with possible audience segmentation by weather, location, and other variables. AudioTrade will also offer some analytics to ad buyers.
“With this launch, AudioTrade is positioned as the first DSP focused on digital audio born in Latin America with the largest number of international traffic sources,” Carlos Cordoba, Audio.ad managing director, said. “Our platform provides advertisers and agencies with 6 billion opportunities to show audiences worldwide audio advertising.”
