But I have downloads in my hosting platform, why should I add this?

Advertisers can’t see into your hosting platform in real time so they reach out and ask for your media kit. You have to update your media kit regularly to give a ballpark range of numbers.
Simplify the process by showing advertisers your up-to-date verified downloads in the same place they’re planning ad buys.

How does it work?

Prefixes are common in podcasting and allows a third party to tap into downloads. Once a prefix is added, when a listener makes the request for your episode from their chosen listening platform, that request hits your host’s server, then passes through Magellan AI, and finally lands in your listener’s device

What information are you collecting?

A unique, anonymized version of each listener's IP address. This allows Magellan AI to compute statistical data about the audience of each podcast.

Does this cost me anything?

Nope. If you’d like access to the full platform, we’re happy to show you around but the prefix is free.

How does this help me sell more ads?

Podcasts with verified downloads will be more prominently displayed in search results within the app. If an advertiser is interested, they can click a button to be put in touch with you. We make the introduction and you close the sale. After the ads run, we deliver airchecks within 24 hours of publishing.

Can I use multiple prefixes at the same time?
