Podcast interviews are one of the most effective tactics you can deploy when it comes to establishing your company as an industry thought leader.
In a typical media interview, you may speak with a journalist for 30 minutes and see that conversation reduced to a single quote buried deep in a long article.
With podcasts, you have the opportunity to speak directly to the audience for an extended period of time. They give you the opportunity to tell your story, share your expertise, and spread your vision for the future.
Our research team has put together a list of some of the top industry podcasts to consider getting booked on. We recommend sorting through and finding podcasts where you can add value. Then, come up with a pitch and reach out to see if they would be open to having you as a guest.
