  • [00:40] In podcasts, there are always ads in the middle of the show.
  • [00:50] Most podcasters use this format, where they run ads in the beginning, middle, and the end.
  • [01:35] Eric was looking at their Apple Podcast retention rates.
  • [01:50] Because Growth Everywhere has a midroll, he checked the retention rates.
  • [02:09] He lost 50% of people at the midroll, but it increased after the ad.
  • [02:30] So, keep your midrolls, because people will just skip them, but will continue to listen and stay engaged.

  • [03:50] Andrew Warner integrates his ads into the podcast episode, which increases sign-ups.
