One of our clients is a large music streaming platform, that recently started to increase their presence in the podcasting world. To promote one of their new podcasts about a famous celebrity, they launched a big media campaign across a wide range of platforms in the US, and while they can see how many people listened to the podcasts, they don’t have insights on how many people were actually influenced by their campaign. This is where you come in! You will get access to a virtual dashboard that contains results of several modeling iterations that explain brand health variables. Together with your team, you will inspect these models to find out which one is the best, after which you will get to present your reasoning, concerns & suggestions on your chosen model to the client’s data scientists. In addition, you will get the chance to pitch your findings about the campaign’s performance to the client’s board, along with actionable recommendations on how they can further drive brand affinity & podcast awareness.
