Podcasts are becoming increasingly popular as a way of connecting with your audience and providing them value on a regular basis. They are something we should at least consider for our business if we want to grow it and move with the times. Like videos though, they are one of those approaches that many people find terrifying, myself included! I am still only tentatively dipping my big toe into the video arena and getting my head around that.
However whilst you are umming and erring about it, you should still be reaping their benefits. As just mentioned, podcasts are a way of providing value and there is nothing scary about being a recipient of that. Podcasts are a free resource available to everyone (that has a smart phone – so just about everyone). They vary from 10 minutes to a couple of hours so great for a quick fix of inspiration or driving in your car or on long journeys.
Below I have listed 7 podcasts to help you feel inspired and motivated about building your online business. Feel free to add any in the comments below that you find great.
Happy listening and by for now 🙂
