Some content is delivered much better in an audio format. Take sonic branding — the creation of a sound that becomes associated with a brand. Some of the more well-known examples are Intel, Netflix, and McDonalds (all of those examples came from a longer 11 minute video on sonic branding — which you could assign or show in class if you want). But I found this podcast case study on the development of HBO’s new sonic idea to be particularly interesting. The podcast goes into a lot of depth on the factors HBO thought about and some of the marketing research they conducted. It will be a nice supplement to a discussion of branding (Chapter 8) or maybe marketing research (Chapter 7).
