In 2016, Spotify made a lot of noise.
The streaming service had raised more than $100 million, with its biggest investors taking out a whopping $1.3 billion in cash.
And while the company is a huge part of the podcast industry today, the company’s biggest investors weren’t just big investors in podcasts; they were big investors on the other side of the coin: musicians, podcasters, and other music fans.
And when Spotify started monetizing podcasts, it was a big deal.
But the company didn’t actually do anything with those ads until the first quarter of 2017, when it made a significant investment in the company.
And in that first quarter, the amount of money Spotify had earned in ad revenue dropped to less than $10 million.
Spotify’s move to put more money into podcasts also had a lot to do with a major shift in the music industry, which has increasingly become an entertainment medium for young people.
It wasn’t until 2015, after Spotify announced it was starting to make money in podcasts, that the company realized it needed to invest in the business, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Spotify has been working on this shift for years, and it was one of the key drivers behind its decision to put so much money into podcast advertising, according the Journal.
By 2018, the money it had made in podcast advertising had become more than enough to cover its podcast expenses, according a Spotify spokesperson.
Spotify didn’t make much money from its podcast advertising in 2018, but it started making money from it in 2019, according another Spotify spokesperson, so it didn’t have to invest much more in it in 2020.
Spotify spent less than a tenth of what it did in 2016, but the company saw its podcast ad revenue grow by $1 billion by 2019.
Spotify is making a lot more money from podcasts than it did from advertising in 2020, according Spotify.
And this is just a tiny fraction of the total money Spotify is earning from podcast ads.
The company also put $30 million into podcast promotion.
In 2018, Spotify began advertising on Spotify’s podcast app, and in 2019 it also started using podcasts as a promotional tool on the company site.
Spotify also paid $4 million for its podcast podcast promotion, according The Wall St. Journal.
The new ad revenue from podcast advertising has also helped Spotify pay off its debt, which it hasn’t paid off since 2017.
The money Spotify has made from podcasts has helped it pay off more than a billion dollars of debt, according an interview Spotify has given to The Washington Times.
But this money isn’t the only reason Spotify is investing in podcasts.
In addition to podcasts, Spotify has also invested in a bunch of other digital services like YouTube and Instagram, and Spotify has started using those tools to help the company grow.
In fact, Spotify recently started using its podcast platform to help it build out its Instagram.
The New York Times spoke to a Spotify executive about how podcasts have helped Spotify grow its business.
The executive, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to talk to the media, told The New Times that Spotify was “very focused on podcast” as a way to help grow the company, but that the “pod ad is not the primary part of that.”
Spotify has spent more than two billion dollars on podcast advertising.
Spotify doesn’t use its podcast app to advertise directly, but Spotify’s advertising is the primary way the company has made money off its podcast business.
Spotify was able to make this money because it was able spend the money from ads on the podcast platform and make it easy for users to buy or subscribe to podcasts.
Spotify isn’t alone in investing in podcast ads, of course.
There are lots of other platforms where podcasts are being used to help drive revenue.
The Verge reports that podcasts are a way for companies like Google to make advertising more accessible to consumers.
And The New Yorker reports that Spotify is using podcasts to help pay for its upcoming subscription services.
The companies also use podcasts to promote their own products.
And there are other companies that invest in podcasts to boost the company and its revenue, according both The Verge and The New Jersey Star-Ledger.
Spotify CEO Daniel Ek says that podcasts aren’t a revenue generator for Spotify, but there are some benefits to the business model.
Ek said that Spotify’s podcasts, which were originally meant to be used to support Spotify’s music service, are helping Spotify grow in other ways.
He said that the podcast revenue helps Spotify build out a more robust platform for its products.
Spotify wants to make sure that the ads that people pay for on the platforms they’re using are relevant to the audience they’re paying for, he said.
Spotify says it pays out about $1 million per episode to podcasters and $1 to each podcast episode for each of the first 30 days after the episode airs.
The ad revenue helps fund the podcasts that are shown to users, Ek said.
It’s worth noting that Spotify has paid podcasters to put their
