Building An Audience With Podcasts

  1. 1. 1
  2. 2. My name is Douglas Burdett and my day job is running a marketing agency called Artillery and our focus is manufacturers and industrial companies who are serious about growing their sales. I’ve been in the agency business for over 30 years. 2
  3. 3. On a personal note, about 10 years ago, in lieu of a mid-life crisis, I started performing standup comedy. I’m all better now, thanks - and I no longer perform standup comedy but I do channel some of that into my public speaking and my podcast. If you met my wife, she would counsel you not to laugh at my jokes because it only encourages me. 3
  4. 4. For the last 5 years, I’ve been the host of The Marketing Book Podcast where each week I publish an interview with the author of a new marketing or sales book. I recently passed the 250 episode milestone and I’ve read every single book featured on the show. And no, when I started the podcast I didn’t realize I was going to need to read each book, and yes, that’s really cut into my Scotch drinking. Anyway, the podcast now has listeners in over 150 countries, over a million downloads and has been named by LinkedIn and Forbes as one of the top marketing and sales podcasts. 4
  5. 5. Before we talk about building an audience with podcasts… 5
  6. 6. Let’s review the significant changes that have occurred in our world in recent years as it relates to the media world. 6
  7. 7. There was a time when there were somewhat captive audiences, held in place by media gatekeepers. It was very much about filling up the existing space, either advertising inventory or media coverage. I’m talking about businesses that had the resources to build their own audiences like media companies, TV stations, newspapers, magazines, direct mail printers. To build an audience you had to go through some kind of media gate keeper. PR was much more about gaining coverage from a media gatekeeper. 7
  8. 8. But with the internet, you can avoid media gatekeepers and build your own audience. You can cut out the media gatekeeper middleman. A lot of PR work has added creating content in addition to media (or influencer) outreach. And that's why a lot of former journalists are finding their way to working in marketing. This has led to a massive decline in traditional advertising supported media. There will always be advertising, it’s just changed. Two-thirds of digital advertising is now with 3 companies: Google, Facebook and Amazon. 8
  9. 9. And that’s why, if you think about it, EVERY organization is (or can be) a media company. 9
  10. 10. If you’re not trying to build your own audience, you’re doing in the hard way. And podcasts are just one of the tactics commonly known as content marketing whereby you can build your own audience. But remember, YOU DON’T HAVE A CAPTIVE AUDIENCE! 10
  11. 11. Keep in mind that in building your own audience, you’re competing with cat videos. 11
