Why produce a brand podcast?

People love stories and form loyal relationships with storytellers through podcasts. That’s why technology brands are podcasting, including your competitors.

Before you grab a mic and hit record, consider how audio fits into your brand and B2B marketing communications strategies. We help you answer why and then how-to.

Enter the age of the company podcast

Podcasting is moving out of the Trough of Disillusionment (a stage in the Gartner hype cycle just before a new technology delivers on its promises). There are over 500,000 active shows, according to Apple in 2018.

Business podcasts are the ultimate native ads that people subscribe to because they want to keep hearing from you. A compelling story can take many forms, for example an expert interview, trend, case study, or company news. Podcasts build credibility, demonstrate innovation, attract prospects, nurture leads, and much more.

You can launch a podcast that fills a strategic purpose and reflects professionally on your brand.

But it’s too easy to fall short of expectations and even tarnish your reputation. Examples abound of corporate podcasts with stilted banter, rambling interviews and tinny phone audio. Podcasting has entered an era of maturity where amateurism is unacceptable.
