Why Your Company Needs a Podcast

There are two key reasons why every company should start a podcast. It positions you as an industry expert and drives organic traffic as a form of community building.

Featured Shows

1.       Industry Expert

Launching a podcast is one of the easiest ways to establish your company as an industry expert. Podcasts develop credibility and authority, creating a narrative around your company and building trust between you and your community. Podcast listeners go on a journey with you throughout your podcast. By subscribing to your podcast, they’ll get new episodes directly to their smart device.

You can tailor your content around a specific niche or develop it in time with your company’s growth as you explore new markets and products. Launching a podcast can give your company a global profile without investing in international PR or marketing. Your podcast is likely to build a domestic community first with your listenership accumulating with time to incorporate a more international following.

2.      Organic Traffic and Community Building

Podcast listeners are interested in your industry niche or content. The fact that they’ve chosen to listen to your podcast makes your target demographic from the offset. Podcasting is therefore a more effective form of marketing with a highly engaged audience. You’ll be speaking directly to the community you want to build and the listeners you want to convert to customers.

Each podcast episode provides you with an opportunity to provide a call to action (CTA) or promote a new aspect of your business. Companies and service providers often reward podcast listeners with exclusive discounts and benefits, promoting these throughout the podcast episodes.
