April 18, 2023
Forging Customer Connections with Podcasts
According to eMarketer, there will be approximately 144 million monthly podcast listeners in the U.S. alone by 2026. And with 43% of B2B and B2C decision-makers reporting they get their thought leadership content from podcasts along with e-newsletters and webinars (Sapio Research), it's hard to think of a reason why brands should not launch a podcast.
However, we need to be honest, a lot of available thought leadership content is just not that good. In fact, only 33% of thought leadership producers believe that the overall quality of their content is very good or excellent. And that number drops to 29% among execs, according to a 2022 report by Edelman and LinkedIn.
