Podcast listeners are loyal, affluent, and educated. And with over 50% of the U.S. population considering themselves a podcast “fan,” that’s a lot of ears in which you could be streaming your message. Podcasting is trending upward, and if you want to stake your claim in your market with an authority building and magnetic show, the time is now.
I’m excited about today’s guest James Hamilton Healy. He is our podcast producer and strategist, and he’s been amazing, working with us to help our clients launch their podcasts. There are many reasons for starting a podcast and many benefits that you may not be aware of, and we’re going to go over that in today’s episode.
Podcasting allows you more than any other medium to build a faster and stronger relationship with your audience. When you think about it, when a person is listening to you, your voice is in their ear literally. It’s intimate. They can pick up on your intonation, the emotion in your voice.
And not only are listeners loyal, but they are also on the go, and in today’s mobile world, podcasting fits in perfectly. Listeners can connect while walking the dog, cleaning up the kitchen, getting ready for work in the morning, or driving a car.
We all know our customers get to know, like, and trust us through the content we create. Podcasting helps you quickly create high-value content for repurposing. Podcast episodes allow for multiple content asset creation including, social media posts, blog articles, book chapters, and press releases.
Listen in as we unpack some of these benefits, and feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or want to learn more about starting your show!
