    The growing popularity of podcasts cannot be overlooked with the number of people listening to podcasts each month at an all-time high of 73 million people, according to Edison Research.  CEOs of major brands and top industry thought leaders are frequently featured on the likes of How I Built This, TechCrunch’s Equity, and Freakonomics.  Additionally, more companies are hosting their own branded podcasts as a way to develop authentic relationships with their customers, employees, and the public. Podcasting lets you and your clients tell a deeper brand story. But where and how do you begin?

    Join Podcast Allies on April 25 for an interactive workshop to learn the basics of podcasting from pitching a podcaster to hosting one yourself! You’ll learn:

    • Pros and cons of the three different ways to get involved with podcasting: serving as a guest, sponsoring podcasts, and producing branded podcasts
    • A high-level overview of Podcast Allies’ “Six Ps” that take you from idea to launch
    • The crucial importance of the planning stage: Focus your show for strategic success
