    Set how much to spend, when your ads run, and how your ads will be delivered.


  • Note the estimated impressions based on your budget and CPM. Adjust the settings accordingly.
  • Frequency cap decides how often an individual user will see your ad within a certain period of time. Customize the frequency cap to avoid overexposing the ad to the same audiences.
  • Choose the campaign pacing as you need. You can opt for either accelerated (running ads as quickly as possible) or even pacing (running ads evenly throughout the campaign period).

At this step, we list the podcasts that best match your targeted locations and podcast categories. Check their detailed info, download stats and listen to their episodes. Then select the podcasts with the most potential audience to run your campaign. 


  • Suggestions of adding podcasts or raising budget are given based on your targeted impressions and downloads of selected podcasts. Adjust them if needed.
