In 2015, I joined the podcast movement as an avid listener. I will not lie; I was amazed at the amount incredible free content that is available via podcasts from so many talented marketers and entrepreneurs. How did I not know about this sooner?!? There is a wide variety of marketing podcasts out there to choose from; almost to the point that it can be overwhelming when you first get started building your playlist. So, I thought I would help!
Over the past year, I have narrowed down my weekly podcast listening queue to my top favorites.
Online Marketing Made Easy With Amy Porterfield
The marketing podcast that I will say is my favorite and the one that always make sure to listen to is Amy Porterfield’s Online Marketing Made Easy podcast. Amy Porterfield is a very talented Social Media Strategy Consultant, podcaster, online course creator, and much much more! My favorite think about Amy’s podcast is that with every episode she provides her listeners with a corresponding blog post on the episode’s topic and a free resource to download! Her podcast is very fun to listen to, always up beat, and she provides real actionable tips on how to grow your social media strategy.
The Growth Show
If you have followed me for a while then you know that I am a huge HubSpot fan! I have been following their blogs and using the resources for years, and I was very excited when they launched their podcast, The Growth Show. The Growth Show is more about business than just solely marketing, but the information they provide is important for any digital marketer. As they put it, their episodes are designed for “leaders consumed with driving growth — growing a company, growing a movement, growing an idea, growing a team.” They publish a new episode each week where the hosts sit down with someone who has achieved remarkable growth and find out how other’s can use their experience to grow their businesses too!
You can listen to The Growth Show on iTunes.
Marketing Over Coffee
The Marketing Over Coffee podcast is a great weekly podcast that features some amazing guests! The podcast’s tagline is “At the Intersection of Marketing, Sales, and Technology” and the hosts definitely cover all of these topics with their guests. So ,who are these guests you may ask. Well just Seth Godin, Simon Sinek, and Ann Handley; to name a few! John Wall and Christopher Penn are the hosts of this awesome podcast, they are very fun to listen to as they discuss new and old marketing trends. So why is it called Marketing Over Coffee? Because they record each week’s episode in a local coffee shop!
Social Media Marketing Podcast
For probably as long as I have been a HubSpot fan, I have been a devoted follower of the Social Media Examiner blog. As such, I was equally as excited to see that one of my favorite blogs also had a podcast: the Social Media Marketing podcast! The Social Media Marketing podcast is a weekly 45-minute show that features leading social media marketing pros as they share their tips and strategies for building a social media presence.
Social Media Examiner Show
Always one to provide great content, Social Media Examiner didn’t stop at just one podcast, they launched a second one! Social Media Examiner also has a daily 10-minute marketing podcast that provides snack-size social media tips that you can use right away. It is the perfect dose of marketing even if you are having a busy day.
Duct Tape Marketing
Duct Tape Marketing has been popular book for all marketing professionals since its publication in 2007, and the Duct Tape Marketing podcast is now also a great place to find new ways to think about marketing and business strategy. I knew that the podcast was going to be good when I saw that the host was John Jantsch, the author of Duct Tape Marketing and a renowned marketing consultant. Each week John interviews authors, experts and thought leaders about their business marketing tips, tactics and resources to creating a successful marketing strategy in this rapidly changing environment.
