Editor’s note: Today’s post comes to us from Betsy Aimee, a writer, speaker, podcast producer, and entrepreneur. She will be sharing her go-to podcasts with us.
Podcasts are all the rage lately! I started my own podcast called The Currently earlier this year and it has been a great way to reach a new audience and highlight people in my network who are making their mark in the world. It has also been a way to make sense of what has been a crazy year of news, world events and personal transformation.
Podcast audiences are growing as they allow you to connect with your audience in a personal, captivating way. With podcasts, you are less likely to be competing for your audience’s attention as there is less competition. Most people are often listening during their drive to (or at) work.
Advertisers have taken note and there are many opportunities to connect with sponsors as a place to connect with a very niche audience. They have also paved the way for many new voices that offer guidance and tips to those who are self-employed or side-hustling.
These are the podcasts that have been keeping me company lately and that have given valuable tools and insights to tackle challenges in work and life. Tells us your favorites in the comments!
