Businesses today have more competition than ever, especially in tight digital marketing niches like B2B podcast production. According to industry research firm IBISWorld, as much as 30% of all business activity has taken place online since the pandemic in 2020.
To perform well, companies need to create ultra-robust online presences with profiles on every major platform and smaller platforms in their respective industries. Publishing creative and valuable content for consumers is imperative for brands that want to grow their customer base and increase sales year-over-year.
Podcasting is an important part of a competitive marketing strategy, but you may already know this or maybe even be starting your own podcast marketing campaign. But the overall quality of your podcast makes a significant impact on your listenership and traffic.
Not publishing a podcast is better than publishing one of poor quality that may paint your brand in a negative light. Here's what to know about quality B2B podcast production and how Caspian Studios can help you create, syndicate, and market podcasts that stand miles above your competitors.
Getting into podcasting is important, but this could backfire if your podcasts are poor quality and don’t reflect the quality of your brand. Podcast listeners are looking for engaging content on the topics they care about presented in an entertaining but straightforward and easy-to-listen-to manner. Listeners need to be able to hear what you are saying but remain engaged enough so as not to become bored with the content.
For example, if your podcast audio is bad or the background music is too loud, listeners may not get very far into the podcast before turning it off in frustration. The time, effort, and money your business puts into podcasting is wasted when listeners quickly bounce to look for other content. Your podcast should feature music that is neither too quiet nor too loud, pauses that are the appropriate length of time, and speaking voices with enough inflection to draw listeners in emotionally.
Many companies are intimidated by podcasting, especially if they are large businesses with a high volume of customers and little time to invest in a podcast marketing strategy. Producing a podcast involves many different steps that can be a stumbling block for businesses that attempt to produce and publish podcasts for marketing purposes on their own.
Businesses may have difficulty deciding which steps need to be completed and in what order to successfully create a podcast idea, record the show, and market these content assets, especially if no one on the team has prior experience with this type of content marketing.
Onboarding a professional podcast production company can be a great way to get your business on the playing field without putting additional responsibilities on already stretched-thin staff.
Instead of doing everything needed to bring a podcast to fruition yourself, an experienced professional B2B podcast production agency does the heavy lifting for you. This allows your company to maintain focus on its core competencies.
Big companies often lack the time and staff resources to devote to podcast marketing, especially if the strategy involves a large volume of episodes and a comprehensive advertising initiative. There are several benefits to working with a professional podcast production agency that can handle the following:
There are many podcast agencies vying for the attention of large companies and well-known brands. However, not all corporate podcast companies offer the same quality of service.
The agency you choose can make or break the success of your podcast marketing campaign. A low-quality podcast will likely cost just as much money as a quality podcast, if not more, but will not drive nearly the same results. In many cases, the damage to your brand from a poorly executed podcast may result in an overall loss of revenue.
