Podcasting Course

Podcasts in the UK are booming!

Nearly 6 million adults are now tuning in each week and the number of weekly podcast listeners has almost doubled in five years!

Podcast consumption is a fast growing trend that businesses are only just now beginning to leverage. Podcast audiences are highly engaged – 89% of them listen right to the end of an episode.

Podcasting offers a great way to grow a deeper connection with your customers, to display your passion and expertise, and to build affinity, trust and loyalty.

Every business is made up of people.

We all have stories to tell.

I recently attended Social Brighton’s new podcasting masterclass. An excellent day which showed me that podcasting isn’t a dark technical art that only a few know how to do, but one that can be done very easily with the right know how. From planning the podcast, producing it and dissemination on all major podcast platforms, I can highly recommend this course for any business or organisation wanting to take advantage of growing trend of listening to podcasts.
