Podcasts: Your New Content Marketing Engine

podcasts: your new content marketing engine


Have you ever wondered if using your company’s blog as the engine of your content marketing strategy is an outdated method? I’m here to tell you it is.

So, hear me out. Brand blogging blew up in the early 2000s when websites became richer and the internet became more mainstream. This was 15 or 20 years ago, and present-day marketing teams are still turning to the same tactics used back then!
Today’s audience has higher expectations. Social media is ingrained in everyday practices. Podcasts are on the up and up. Still, the same old playbook established by yesteryear’s marketers is what modern marketers are following. It’s time to ditch that outdated playbook and provide an experience that engages your audience before they leave you for one of your competitors.
You need to let conversations lead your content marketing efforts rather than ruminating over keywords and creating less-than engaging copy to rank in search. One of the best ways to lead with conversations is through a brand podcast. Not only will this allow you to produce more content, but you’ll also see an increase in engagement and conversions.
Allow me to elaborate.

Your content should address a specific audience’s needs.

In January 1996, Bill Gates published an essay titled Content is King on the Microsoft website. The piece suggested that content would become an essential factor for digital marketing success. He wrote:
“Content is where I expect much of the real money will be made on the Internet, just as it was in broadcasting.”
Fast forward to the present and yes, he’s right!
It has been over 24 years since Content is King, and those words are more valid than ever. Indeed, content is more relevant now than it was in 1996. But why?

Branded Content Project Press Release & E&P Reports Exclusive

NEW YORK, Oct. 27, 2020- The Branded Content Project, an initiative by the Local Media Consortium, Local Media Association and Facebook Journalism Project, today released the results of a report on content marketing in collaboration with Borrell Associates Inc., which found that, despite the effect Covid-19 had on businesses, content marketing remained relatively steady and is projected to be more of a priority in 2021.
In this segment of E&P Reports, Mike Blinder speaks with Julia Campbell of the Branded Content Project and Corey Elliott of Borrell Associates about the report’s findings and what local media can do to seize the opportunities of content marketing.
With expenditures on advertising falling by double-digit percentages in 2020, the report, “Sizing the Content Marketing Opportunity,” projects that the amount spent on content marketing will be down just 1.5%, to $63.3 billion. The decline is due almost wholly to the retraction of marketing activity in a few dozen categories that have been hit hardest by the pandemic. Travel/tourism, live entertainment, sporting events, clothing, and recreation have reduced content marketing expenditures an average of 19% due to business slowdowns or shutdowns.

Content marketing has increasingly become …
