The audio revolution
The podcast industry is truly booming, and Ofcom recently reported that 6 million adults in the UK tune in each week. There’s a show for almost everything and, as a listener, it’s a great way to incorporate digestible information into your everyday.
The audio form lets us listen alongside other tasks, meaning this profitable medium is one that most of us are tapping into – whether it’s on our commute, cooking or at our desks, we’re donning our headphones and getting into the swing of them.
Finding your voice
As a business, dipping your toes into the audio revolution makes perfect sense, especially if you want to be known as a thought leader in your industry. The way you do this and the topics you cover are completely up to you and depend on your business model but should be representative of your brand’s point of view. Having a defined (and consistent) stance on the world is essential when projecting this voice to a new stage.
If you’ve got industry news or updates on trending topics, then these can be the start points for your discussions. Why not involve your partners and invite any contributors to talk about their respective fields? The stance you take has to be unique and distinct to you, that way your podcast will support your other content and messaging. Done correctly, business podcasts can add immense value from a marketing and traffic standpoint.
Consistency is key
– Keep publicising your episodes (old and new) on your social media channels to increase visibility.
Although it’s a clear win, starting a podcast can feel daunting – especially if you’re thinking of sourcing all the equipment yourself. We’ve taken the hassle out of that process – our latest Fora space in Soho will have fully kitted out podcast studios, operated by Soho Radio, upon opening in a few weeks time. Giving you more time to channel your energies into the topics you cover, and putting all the laborious admin to one side.
Watch this space for updates on the opening of our podcast studios in Soho. In the meantime you can explore all of our spaces here.
