May 11th, 2005 Â Digital Garage Media announces the launch of its new ÂpodcastingÂ media and marketing services. A world leader in branded entertainment marketing, Digital Garage Media, quickly recognized the potential of this unique community driven media experience that turns millions of North AmericanÂs into both producers and consumers of radio-like audio files. For the first time, consumers and professionals alike can produce and publish sound files to the Internet and build an audience around the world by allowing listeners to download and play their content on portable MP3 players such as the wildly popular Apple iPods. Digital Garage MediaÂs Podcasting media and marketing services help our clients harness the power of ÂpodcastingÂ to create integrated programs that drive sales and connect with customers.
ÂSuddenly anyone with a PC, microphones, and the right software can become an overnight broadcaster of digital content and reach audiences globallyÂ, says Geoff Clendenning Â Managing Director, ÂThis dramatically shifts how consumers will engage and consume radio content and will change the way advertisers leverage media to communicate their message to their audienceÂ.
ÂPodcasting allows consumers to engage radio content on their own terms which represents a significant change to the traditional notion of broadcasting. Very soon video will be included in this evolving model as wellÂ, says Michael Carpentier Â Managing Director, ÂThis frees consumers and advertisers alike from the constraints of mass media and represents an unparallel marketing opportunity to those companies that move quickly to integrate and associate themselves with this compelling model and growing communityÂ
Digital Garage Media helps advertisers build ÂpodcastingÂ communities in a manner that strategically links the brand with the community. Like all branded entertainment developed by Digital Garage, ÂpodcastingÂ communities can focus on a variety of content matter including music, fashion, entertainment, sports, video games, etc. All Digital Garage Media programs incorporate an integrated Âclosed loopedÂ approach to ensure that retail and/or sales objectives are part of the program. Campaigns can be scaled and/or modified to meet regional, national and international strategic requirements. Tracking, measuring and reporting are always a fundamental part of the program. This brings a genuine level of accountability that often can be traced right to the point of purchase while building productive relationships with your consumer.
