As the final year of this decade is well underway, it’s pretty awe-inspiring to think back about how our culture – and consequently the marketing industry – has evolved. It can be a challenge to stay current in such an ever-changing field. Blogs, news and social posts can help you stay ahead of the curve but one of the most valuable sources for marketing insight has made itself known in a rapidly growing, new channel – marketing podcasts
A recent CBS poll revealed that two-thirds of Americans listen to podcasts at least once in a while. This is compared to just a year ago when less than half of America was tuning in. The podcast platform has skyrocketed in popularity because of its accessibility, even for the busiest of lifestyles. And expert marketers have taken notice.
Marketing podcasts offer some of the most beneficial and fresh insight you can find. Create more effective campaigns in 2019 by checking out our list of the 8 top marketing podcasts out there. (Our list of the top marketing books coming soon!)
