Supplying additional company information

Describe your company brand of product

There are three types of company types in Acast self-serve. We use this information to set up your legal record correctly but also to tailor the experience to best fit your needs.

  • Brand: you have a business and you want to advertise your own product or service.

  • Agency: you are buying on behalf of another brand or company.

  • Podcaster: you are podcaster or a podcast publisher and you want to promote your show(s).

Describing your brand

Acast ad delivery relies on a set of business categories called IAB categories. These categories are used to match your business against podcaster categories to ensure brand safety. It's important to select the categories that best describe your business. If categories mismatch you risk of being denied when booking an ad campaign.

You can read more about the IAB taxonomy here.
