Oatly partners with Somna Med Henrik and Acast to create branded podcast episode that fans loved

The brief

Oatly came to Acast and wanted to do something that kept listeners entertained and didn't 'bore them'.

What we did

From research we know that listeners respond well to ads whereby they are being entertained or enlightened by voices they like and recognise. Therefore, the focus of the campaign was to give listeners a reason to press play and naturally blend into Oatly giving listeners a gift, in the form of a podcast episode. One of the podcasts where the listeners have a very clear reason to press play is "Sleep with Henrik". He simply helps listeners fall asleep, which in itself is one of the best gifts you can get. And it goes without saying that oat milk and sleep have very few obvious connections, so we asked Henrik to give his listeners a really fantastic goodnight story - then there was a (both true and false) story about oats, without any other comments about the Oatly brand or product.

The episode was broadcast just like all the usual episodes in Somna med Henrik's feed, giving it a feel of authenticity.

The result

The episode generated nearly 30,000 listens within 4 weeks, and an engagement rate of 95% - which shows that the content engaged the listener to the same extent as the podcast's regular episode (engagement rate 90%).
