Spotify Advertising

Music is the soundtrack to many people’s lives — they use it to energise, relax, focus, work out, party and everything in between. They stream it, they play it on iPods and iPhones, and even enjoy classic and newly pressed vinyl.

Audio surrounds us all day long from a range of sources and platforms — and Spotify has quickly become the platform of choice to share messages with highly targeted audiences as they stream the music and podcasts they love.

With more than seven million users in Australia alone, Spotify is not only the world’s largest global music subscription service, it’s also an appealing platform for music and podcast consumers spanning generations.

Even more importantly, Spotify has emerged as a powerful tool for businesses and brands to share their story and get their messages in ears and in front of eyes.

We can help you amplify your messages

Research has proven that digital audio is more engaging than radio, TV and social media.

Spotify offers brands and businesses an array of digital audio advertising options to suit budgets and objectives. Advertising opportunities also span more than just audio — you can also boost your brand and share your messages using video, display and even podcast ads.

Music is inherently personal and emotional, and platforms like Spotify can fuel insights far beyond basic demographics to reflects moods, moments and mindsets. Where else can you tap into a database of this calibre and target customised and captivating ads to engaged audiences?

Online Path’s digital advertising experts can help you leverage the unique targeting capabilities of Spotify to reach listeners across devices, moments and formats when they are immersed in their favourite music and podcasts.

Tap into powerful consumer insights

Unlike traditional radio advertising, Spotify advertising allows you to target your messages to any audience you like — meaning your advertising budget is spent on audiences that matter rather than the scattergun approach of radio where you pay top dollar to reach audiences that may not even be interested in your brand or business.

Online Path can create Spotify ad campaigns that reach audiences based on more than just demographic data such as age, gender and language, but also according to streaming habits, platforms and location.

We will harness the power of Spotify consumer insights to further target your messaging based on music genre, or even serve your ads to people who are listening to music tailored to specific activities and moods through playlists.

We can go the extra mile to help you target your ads based on mobile device, desktop applications and even carrier, so that your ad reaches your audience exactly when they are ready to listen.

Tell your brand’s story with professional production

At Online Path, we are invested in your brand just as much as you are. We spend the time getting to know your business and your objectives and we turn that into captivating ad content that resonates with your target audience.

When it comes to audio, video and display advertising, Spotify is a cut above the rest. Your ad will be professionally produced meaning it will stand out with high quality audio, video and display advertising options that will drive brand visibility and audience engagement — and all included in the cost of your ad. No hidden extras.

Based on a ‘freemium’ model, Spotify offers listeners free and paid subscription options, with active users listening for an average more than two hours a day on the ad-supported platform.

On Spotify’s ad-supported platform, we can make sure your ads are heard and seen by listeners at naturally occurring breaks between songs and across mobile and desktop platforms.


Our online advertising experts can create audio campaigns that will reach your audience where visual media can’t — from headphones to the car and at any moment in between. Audio ads are served between songs during active listening sessions and are accompanied by a clickable companion display unit to drive traffic to a URL destination.


Harnessing the power of Spotify’s display advertising options, we can put your brand front and centre with ads designed for viewability on homepage banners and takeovers to mobile and desktop overlays.

Leaderboard — Get your brand noticed in an environment where your ad is the only one shown for 30 seconds. These clickable display units are served when Spotify is the top app on the screen.

Homepage takeover — Showcase your brand message on the Spotify homepage for 24 hours with this clickable display unit that can also include interactive elements to capture interest and drive engagement.

Overlay — Ensure your brand makes maximum impact using this clickable display unit that drives traffic to your destination URL using one of 13 different call-to-action buttons to increase engagement.


Up the ante with Spotify’s video advertising options and tell your story with sight, sound and motion, and put your brand at the gateway of the Spotify streaming experience. Using Spotify video ads, our digital advertising experts can engage your brand with your audience in a number of different ways to increase brand visibility, awareness and engagement.
