Brands have never had so many ways to reach audiences through their ears – from music streaming, podcasts, radio and smart speakers. But given audio is one of the most intimate forms of media, it’s not enough just to reach people; we need to move them.
In this session, award-winning audio specialist Ralph van Dijk will explain how to capture the essence of a brand in sound and ensure it builds personality across all the ways listeners listen. He’ll then demonstrate why adapting your creative to different audio platforms, is key to making an audience that’s passively hearing, start actively listening.
Van Dijk will provide case studies of brands doing it well (along with some high-profile mistakes) describe the environments where it’s best to not cut-through, and the audio assets no brand should be without.
