Psst… This post was originally published on Road Warrior Creative.

Just think – what if you could absorb marketing and business knowledge while driving, exercising, showering or even cleaning the house?

You can! If you’re not quite sure what I’m getting at just yet, I’m speaking of podcasts. Podcasts are recorded interviews or mini-trainings, that can usually be downloaded to most any device.

You might be thinking, ‘Yeah… I know!’ If you are, I’m assuming you’ve already jumped on the podcast train. According to Journalism.org and PEW Research Center, in 2006, 11% of the population 12 or older had listened to a podcast. In 2015, that number rose to 33%! Podcasts have been on the rise for a while, and I’m thinking that in 2016 their popularity will spike even higher.

I’m not here to talk to you about starting your own podcast (surely we can do that later). Instead, I’d love to chat about some of the podcasts I’ve found most beneficial to learn social media marketing tactics. I can also assure you that listening to podcasts doesn’t have to be another item on your to-do list, requiring you to pull more time out of a hat.

Let’s get to it!

BENEFIT FROM PODCASTS:

Sadly, it’s not enough to just listen to podcasts. How I wish my brain could listen to something one time and store it away for good. It’s not possible! Many times, these podcast episodes are full of actionable information nuggets. You might remember what they said a few days after, but even those memories have an expiration date if they aren’t acted upon. Here are a few tips to move from listener to action-taker.
