Plus, if you haven’t got the time to read articles or watch videos during your busy day, podcasts are extremely accessible – listen during your commute, or even on the treadmill. And get this: according to Edison Research, people who listen to audio listen to podcasts almost as much as they listen to the radio.

But why is podcasting important to PR and marketing professionals? Besides the wealth of knowledge it can provide us on a daily basis, its a piece of content marketing we can use to reach our audiences: 67 percent of podcast listeners don’t mind sponsorship messages and occasionally find them useful, compare to 6 percent of TV or radio listeners.

Podcasting: why it should be the PR consultant’s best friend | Firefly

Podcasting: why it should be the PR consultant’s best friend | Firefly | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

...From a PR’s perspective, there are three reasons to take in interest in podcasts:

1. Listen: learn about your industry.

2. Reach out: get your clients or your company featured on leading podcasts.

3. Speak out: make your own podcast and reach your target audience in a different way, at a different time.

 

The reasons also map quite nicely onto a three-step process for PRs to get into podcasting. I’ve spoken to half a dozen podcasters to get an insight into why they do it and ways PR people can engage with them, with some surprising insights....

6 Reasons Why Marketers Should Bet on Podcasting

6 Reasons Why Marketers Should Bet on Podcasting | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

It started with a few tweets here and there asking me to start a podcast (“I don’t have time to read all your blog posts!”), a couple of guest appearances on hangouts and other marketing podcasts, and next thing I know, for Inbound Marketing Week this year, I launched The Superheroes of Marketing podcast.


There is more to it than that, obviously. And the challenges were well, challenging… I’m not good with hardware. Wires and plugs all look the same to me. As an introvert, the performance part of the project is exhausting. Like everyone else, I’m busy. Really busy. Podcasting is extremely time consuming (more so than I expected).


But, here I am, planning, scheduling, recording and editing a weekly podcast with my co-host, Kelly Kranz. Am I crazy? Maybe. But here's why it works....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

There are so many blogs and so little time to read them. Podcasting is a great way to share marketing information with people on the go. Why should you start a podcast?

The Rise of Podcasts as Business Education [Infographic] | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it
As our world has grown more mobile and related technology has evolved, podcasting has become a mainstream form of continuing education—including for marketers.

"Podcasts are a new form of continuing education, making it possible to 'audit a class' in any subject just by listening on the go," states the following Marketing Podcasts infographic.

And unlike in the early days of podcasting, today's podcasts are easier to download and listen to on smartphones and mobile devices.

For example, iTunes now has 250,000 podcasts, up from 200,000 in 2010, and Apple has more than one billion subscriptions to podcasts via its iTunes app.

Want to learn more about the benefits of podcasts and the technologies that have improved podcasting? Then check out the infographic:

Podcasting as a Business Content Marketing Strategy - Search Engine Journal

Podcasting as a Business Content Marketing Strategy - Search Engine Journal | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Every day we hear more experts preaching the gospel of podcasting as a content marketing tool. It's a very enticing sermon. According to Google Analytics the average visitor to my website stays for two minutes and seven seconds. According to Stitcher {popular alternative to iTunes} the average podcast listener stays for twenty two minutes.


If you believe the concept that the time our audience spends in front of our content builds authority then by these statistics I would have to produce 11 blog posts to equal just one podcast. Podcasts place the ideas and expertise that establish us as an authority in front of our audience for a longer period of time per interaction. From a business content marketing strategy, this is why we podcast. 

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Remember, Podcasting is NOT for every business, but it can be a powerful tool in the right situation.

My Complete, Step-By-Step Podcasting Tutorial to help you Learn How to Start a Podcast like a Pro. 6 High-Quality Videos and Everything Else You Need!

 

Starting a podcast has been one of the best decisions I have ever made for my brand. Ever.

 

Since starting The Smart Passive Income Podcast in July of 2010:

*  The show has surpassed 2,000,000 total downloads. (Sept. 24, 2012 – see graph)
*  The podcast has become the #1 way people who read my blog found out about me – that’s above search, social media and links from other websites. (See survey results)
*  I was contacted by a Hollywood producer who listened to my show to consult as the social media director for a $10M independent film (See IMDB)
*  Fox News reached out to me to feature my story on the evening news.
*  I led a panel at Blog World Expo in New York this past June about the power of podcasting. It was cool to see the room filled beyond capacity. (See image)
*  Several other big-name bloggers have started their own podcasts, including Michael Hyatt, Michael Stelzner and Derek Halpern - and even more recently Seth Godin.
*  I’ve become more confident as a person and better skilled as a speaker. It was the perfect stepping stone to conquering my fear of public speaking. Next year, I’ve already been booked to speak at 4 different events around the United States, and have been asked to speak at even more events around the world....
