Benefits of Podcasting : Lunch & Learn

Benefits of Podcasting

Lunch & Learn
10 January 2020 | 12pm – 1pm

It is the golden age of audio right now and podcasts can be a fantastic asset to your business, but you don’t have to start your own podcast to enjoy the benefits.

Your customers are time poor, and many just do not have the time or inclination to sit and read a whole lot of information on the web

…and that is if they even make it to your website. This makes helping them get to know you, your brand and your products and services challenging to say the least. 

We know that ‘word of mouth’ works. Telling your story verbally can help make it easier for potential customers to get to know you exist, learn about what you do and why you are great at it, and start to gain some comfort that you are trustworthy. But, who has time to go and talk to every potential customer one-on-one?!?! The concept means you are limited by time and geography…not a very scalable marketing strategy…

You may have heard about podcasts…you may even listen to a few yourself. But have you stopped to consider how you could use this platform for your business.

If you have, and you are thinking “yes, but I don’t have the time or skills to start my own podcast” then this week’s Lunch & Learn session is for you. 

It is not all about starting your own podcast…it is about learning how you can use podcasts to benefit your business.

Come along to find out 3 ways your business can benefit from podcasting in 2020

Ellen from Perk Digital will:

* run through the best podcasts to listen to as a business owner

* the ways you can benefit from starting your own podcast, and

* how you can leverage being a guest on someone else’s podcast to tell your story and promote your business

Your lunch (if you forget, you can pick up something from Flour & Bean Cafe or August Moon Chinese Restaurant, located next door) 

Please note:

This session is not focusing on HOW to start your own podcast (although we will cover WHY). If you are interested in learning how to start your own podcast, please come along to the information session on 3 February 2020 for the ‘Start Your Own Podcast’ course which begins on 24 February 2020.

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.
