12 Podcasts Digital Marketers Should Follow
I've been an avid follower of podcasts since my varsity days, it was always a great way to kill time during my daily commute to town and also a source of insight and new ideas. It also saved me from having to listen to prank calls, traffic news and the radio DJ's wisecracks, every morning and evening. Podcasts are an amazing source of targetted content, where users can find a topic they're interested in and immerse themselves in the content in a completely different way.
Podcasts usage in SA
Overall podcast listening stats in South Africa are almost non-existent, while In the US, an estimated 46 million Americans over the age of 12 now listen to podcasts on a monthly basis. That's 17% of the 12+ US population and showing consistent annual growth. For digital marketers in South Africa, podcasts are an untapped resource and early adopters can gain an edge by listening to experiences and expertise from people in the digital field. Having access to insights that may otherwise go unexplored can give you and your business the competitive edge.
