Reach More Customers with These Three Podcasts

Podcasts are important for learning more about marketing and social media

Podcasts have power. They have taught me the best internet and social media marketing lessons. This recent podcast teaches how to sell with story and make a customer the hero. Remember that feeling in Star Wars when Luke blew up the Death Star or Rocky when he beats Apollo Creed? That same feeling comes when clicking BUY NOW on Apple’s website or hearing “PsssCH” from popping open a Coke can. Apple and Coke tell the right story and make the customer a hero.

Podcast 1: Social Media Marketing Podcast

Social Media Marketing podcast put out by Social Media Examiner

Every Friday, Social Media Examiner puts out a podcast that serves as “Your Guide to the Social Media Jungle”. The show begins with a social media “survival tip” featuring a new discovery to help with social media marketing (I discovered the Ghost Codes app from this show). The podcast features Michael A. Stelzner, CEO/Founder of Social Media Examiner, and a guest deconstructing a social media marketing topic.

How Will It Help Reach More Customers?

Social media is a jungle. Someone needs a guide if they want to find any customers. The Social Media Marketing Podcast is the guide to what works and doesn’t work in social media marketing.

Two Favorite Episodes

  1. Ep 211: How to sell with story and make a customer the hero (mentioned above)
  2. Ep 205: How to film videos on a smart phone (did not have to buy a new camera to film videos, saved over $1,000!)

Find the podcast here.
