If you’re considering launching a podcast as a content marketing tactic to increase awareness and preference for your brand, this is a good book to help you understand the tremendous opportunities that podcasting can offer.
This book does not go into all the technical details of creating a podcast. And it’s not full of podcasting snake oil about how podcasting will make you millions overnight.
Instead, it explains the business side of podcasting such as how to position your expertise through podcasting, how to monetize a podcast, what not to do on a podcast and much more.
The book also includes lots of podcasting case studies, appendices, and recommended tools, tips, and tactics.
It’s great for new podcasters, but even an experienced podcaster can learn from the book. I did.
The most successful podcasts, like any kind of content marketing, have a solid underlying business strategy.
This book will help you with that.
