The Power of Podcasting for Digital Marketing Results

I’ve been podcasting for 119 weeks and it has transformed my business, my network and my life. So you may ask, how can podcasting help my business? Stay tuned to find out!

I’ve always loved radio. Despite leaving broadcast journalism many years ago, I craved going back behind the mic. Podcasting presented the perfect opportunity to satisfy a professional craving while also transforming my business.

The podcast has taken me to the heart of European politics and to international speaker stages.

Amanda and I will share our insights into why podcasting makes great business sense!

* Voice and search marketing

ComScore estimates that by 2020, more than half of all searches will be done via voice search. Right now, Google says that 20% of all mobile search queries are voice.

The majority of voice searches tend to be long and conversational and optimising for long-tail keywords increases the likelihood that you’ll appear for voice searches. You have to be specific and of course meet the needs, problems and demands of your ideal customer.

For example: this podcast may show up in voice search is somebody types in “How can podcasting help my business?”

* The rise in smart speakers

Amazon Echo and Google Home are changing our lives but they are also changing marketing. After waking up the speaker, users can automate a range of activities. By saying “Alexa” on the Echo, you can state a command like “Plan some 90s music” or “OK Google”, what’s on JSB Talks Digital this week?

* Re-purposing podcast content

When you create long-form content such as a podcast, you are filling the Internet with meaningful information for your audience across multiple channels. While

the audio of your podcast may live on a podcasting network, you must create multiple homes to amplify reach and engagement.

I convert my podcast into:

* YouTube videos

* Blog posts

* Audiograms for Insta, Facebook & Twitter

* Social graphics

* Tweets

* Weekly Ezine content

* LinkedIn commentary

* Blog posts

* Alexa Flash briefing

Its value to me and my business right there with one episode is massive. I’m feeding the Goliaths of the Internet – search (Google) and social and now smart speakers.

JSB Talks Digital on International Podcast Day

In Conversation with Amanda Webb

JSB in conversation with Amanda Webb, our love affair with podcasting and why we can’t live without them.

Shoutouts: IPD Founders and The Global Community of Hosts

Steve Lee (founder of Modern Life Network) heard a radio announcement for National Senior Citizens’ Day. Thinking that was pretty cool, it begged the question of why wasn’t there a day of celebration for podcasting. That’s when Steve said to himself , “Let’s create a Podcast Day!” and so it was born in 2013. Along with Daniel J. Lewis this now global event celebrates the medium of podcasting and recognises the efforts that we all put in to serve our own niche audiences.

Last three podcasts I listened to are:

1. Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday with Jack Canfield on Fulfilling Your Soul’s Purpose

2. JSB Talks Digital #118

3. Chris Ducker, in conversation with Sunny Lenarduzzi about how to use YouTube to Grow Your Personal Brand

Tool Of The Week

The podcasting tool that saved my working week this week is Repurpose.io

The “.io” domain name extension is often really popular with software as service businesses.

It’s a platform that allows you to turn podcast audio or just audio in general into videos that can then be posted automatically to YouTube and to Facebook pages

I pay $12 a month US for the middle tier plan, which allows me to post to YouTube and my Facebook Page. For $20 a month you get additional features and can connect to up to 5 podcasts.
