Why (or why not)?

Listen Notes is a website. As you can see, our ads are banner ads. Generally speaking, website banner ads are not as effective as mobile ads, in terms of converting a transaction, e.g., click on ads and buy things immediately, click on ads and subscribe to your podcasts right away. If your goal is to get as many podcast subscribers as possible in a short period of time (e.g., a few days), then advertising on Listen Notes may not be a good fit.
However, running website banner ads could be good for branding, if your banner ads are shown to people repeatedly for a long period of time. Advertising on Listen Notes should be complementary to your other ad campaigns. Different ad campaigns achieve different goals.
