7 Reasons to Add a Podcast to Your Content-Marketing Strategy

Publishing content online is a great start, as long at it's high-quality material that truly helps consumers within your target market. Potential customers in your target market are struggling with something. In his book "Epic Content Marketing," Content Marketing Institute founder Joe Pulizzi offers the best definition of "content" I've seen.

Get a decent microphone and a program for recording and editing your episodes, and you'll have everything you need to produce audio content. It builds trust with your audience. It helps acquire more customers. Make it as easy as possible for listeners to follow through and create your desired result.
