Spotlight: Rothy’s

We first picked up ads for Rothy’s in June 2018 when we were tracking the top 400 podcasts. This is the first time Rothy’s has ranked in our top 15 podcast advertisers list. In June, we picked up Rothy’s on 13 new podcasts including 60 Minutes, Couple of Issues, and Creating Confidence with Heather Monahan. We picked up 2X the amount of ads in June compared to May.

What else changed?

BetterHelp knocked ZipRecruiter out of the #1 position. Indeed and Wix made the top 15 list in June, after not being on it in May. There’s always some movement up and down the top 15 list, but we saw bigger jumps or drops from Audible (#8 to #14) Capital One (#9 to #6) and Quip (#4 to #9).
