The Importance of Podcasting
to Stay Relevant
Is podcasting really that important? Here at Life’s Tough Media, we say YES, and here’s why: Podcasts are personal, portable, and growing at an exponential rate. But most significantly more and more people are listening to podcasts every day.
Podcasts allow people to listen while they’re on the go and develop a personal connection to the material being presented. The overarching move from radio to other streaming platforms has transformed podcasts into the popular alternative for busy people who seek to learn new information while being entertained. As a result, podcasts have potential to create a powerful impact on the way people navigate the business space.
The Benefits of starting a podcast.
Unlike traditional commercials, which we’ve all become conditioned to tune out, podcast listeners deliberately tune in at their convenience. Many often listen alone while wearing headphones, meaning you have their undivided attention! This fosters an environment in which listeners are highly engaged with the content. If your show has a frequent release schedule, listeners are motivated to return and make what you say a part of their daily or weekly routine.
That’s an incredible amount of influence!
So how do you keep that one-on-one feel, but also reach a wide variety of clients? Many brands are launching podcasts to connect to their customers and potential clients. It’s true that podcasting allows you to offer specific information about your products or services, share your company’s core values, and spread your mission to more people—all while creating that personal connection people crave.
You can demonstrate your authority in the business world by greatly increasing the number of people who know about your expertise. By extending your business network into the podcast space, you can showcase your brand and build credibility in your industry. Then, as you continue to gain experience in podcasting, you can feature reputable guests on your show and guest star on other people’s podcasts. Podcasting will foster countless opportunities to grow your brand, expand your network, and build long-lasting relationships as a leading authority your industry.
What is the return on your investment?
The benefits of creating a business podcast go well beyond a simple “dollars spent/dollars generated” formula. In this way, podcasts are an excellent marketing tool that are trailblazing the business landscape. Listeners on your podcast create a profitable return on investment, making the time and money that you put into your podcast worth it. Many people in business have reported that networking through podcasting has been the driving force of revenue for their company.
