Start a podcast to begin a dialogue with your audience so they can understand how you approach your industry.
Over the last 10 years, podcasts have seen huge growth in the United States. According to Edison Research, podcast popularity is driven by the success of new podcast programming and participation by media influencers such as Joe Rogan, Dax Shepard, Alec Baldwin, and Sarah Koenig.

Position Yourself as a Thought-Leader in Your Field
A podcast is the perfect medium to allow you to get into the weeds of your field. Your prospective clients and customers want to know that you know your stuff and that you have what they are looking for. Clients do a ton of research before buying, and listening to a podcast about their unique needs will help sell them on buying from you.
Get Exposure to Your Guest’s Audience
When you interview someone on your podcast, they will help you promote the episode by sharing content on their social channels. It also aligns you with their business. Imagine you are a lawyer who invites an accountant to have a discussion about tax shelters; both of you could benefit from the discussion and each gain access to the other’s networks. A client of theirs might need your services and by appearing together with their accountant, they know you are someone to trust.
Make Clients Feel Special
Invite a client on to your podcast to discuss their experience. It acts as a testimonial for you but also makes them feel special and cared for as your customer. They might then be more likely to refer additional business to you or share the podcast to their own networks.
Generate more Content from a Single Recording Session
A conversation is quick to record but consider all the content that could be developed from it. You could write a blog post, pull short audio clips, create an animated clip for social media, discover new topics, or create a whole video from it. When you outsource your marketing with Borderline, we can act on all of these ideas; getting more content out there is going to help your brand and message be in more places even if your physical presence can’t be.
