If you are a digital marketer that is on a constant search for new ideas and strategies to try out, then we have that in common. On my commute to work I have found myself listening to digital marketing podcasts instead of music. I see it as a quick learning and/or inspiration session since I only have a 15-20 minute drive to the office. And the fact is that I’m not the only one.
According to the Infinite Dial 2019 Report conducted by Edison Research, 1 in every 3 Americans reported having listened to a podcast in the last month which equals to around 90 million monthly listeners. This same report reveals that in 2019, around 62 million people listened to podcasts on a weekly basis, an estimated increase of 14 million year over year.
And so my point is that, what started as a niche, has now become an industry that is replacing traditional media and for many, becoming part of everyday life. Digital Marketing is no exception and there are hundreds if not thousands of podcasts that discuss our ever changing industry. In my opinion this is a great way of expanding our knowledge beyond online courses. I’ve found that the ideas and strategies mentioned in podcasts are more tangible and actionable than anything that I ever learned in a classroom.
Of course I have my list of podcasts that I constantly listen to and I have to admit that they are not limited to just marketing. It ranges from Marketing and Science, all the way to politics. But I decided to go on a quest, to find what other Digital Marketers are listening to and so I did. Here’s a good list of podcasts that I’m hoping inspire you to continue trying and testing new things.
My Favorite Digital Marketing Podcasts*
*at the moment. This list will most definitely change in a month or two. 🙂
What I enjoy about this podcast is that it is a no BS look at Paid Search, specifically Google Ads. Hosts Chris and Jason do a great job at answering questions from listeners and also explaining on how to audit your campaigns, test new tactics, and optimize. If you are looking to learn more about Paid Search then add this one to your list.
Let me just start by saying that this podcast is powered by SEMRush, so right off the bat, we know it will be good. It’s great for staying up to date with SEO, Content Marketing and just learning about new tools and brand strategies.
