Many businesses have been successful doing podcasting, either as a way to make money, as a way to promote their business, or as a way to build their authority on a subject matter. Here are some ways podcasting can work for a business:
- Having a specific topic or niche to cover helps bring in people that are interested in that niche as well (helpful for smaller or more specific topics in particular).
- Advertising on a podcast (you as a business paying a podcaster to talk about your business) is something you can consider if doing your own feels like more work than you want.
- Getting feedback from and communicating with your audience will build more of a connection with your listeners.
- Asking for potential clients or connections to be on the podcast is better than just a cold email and a chance for real connection.
