When given the choice, consumers may want to actually talk to your brand, rather than simply see them or hear from them. A new research study with Instreamatic, Pandora, TuneIn, MFour Mobile Research, and Mindshare USA shows the strength of voice-enabled advertising to reach consumers.

In the study, voice-enabled ads, both short-form and long-form, scored higher with participants across metrics such as consumer persuasion and brand recall versus other ad formats including display banner ads, video ads, and audio ads with banners. The results support other scientific research that two-way dialogues are more memorable than single stimuli. [1]
