Google Enters the Radio Advertising Business with XM Satellite Radio
Posted on 2-Aug-2006 22:30. | Tags Filed under: News.

Google, Inc. has reached an agreement with XM Satellite Radio to introduce and make available commercial advertising inventory on XM's non-music channels to Google's advertising base through its dMarc media network.

As part of the deal, Google advertisers will now have an automated way to reach XM's millions of subscribers across the USA.

According to Google, after months of trials, the new platform is now in full production for dMarc advertisers. Google AdWords' customers will be able to place terrestrial and satellite radio spots when the dMarc platform is integrated into AdWords targeted for fourth quarter of this year.

The dMarc platform, acquired by Google in January 2006, simplifies the sales process, scheduling, delivery and reporting of radio advertising, enabling advertisers to more efficiently purchase and track their campaigns on terrestrial radio, and now on XM Satellite Radio.

For XM, Google's technology automatically schedules and inserts advertising across XM's non-music commercial channels, helping to increase revenue with a wealth of new advertisers, while decreasing the costs previously associated with processing advertisements.
