To Podcast or Not to Podcast
You’re already sharp because you read the Daily Carnage.
If you wanna be even sharper, you should consider adding a podcast to your content strategy. Yep, we’re going there.
Here are 5 reasons to consider adding a podcast:
- Competition is Low: For comparison sake, there are 80m Facebook business pages and only 700k podcasts. When you niche down, that number shrinks even more.
- Easily Digestible: Podcasts require little effort on the listeners’ end. They can listen while they workout, drive to work, etc.
- Mobile-Friendly: 69% of podcast listeners are on their phones. Wrap your head around that for a second. As we continue to shift to a mobile-first mentality, why not take advantage of mobile-friendly content (like a podcast)?
- No Slowing Down: According to Statista data, there were 48m weekly podcast listeners in 2018. That’s expected to be 115m by 2021. Don’t wait to jump on the bandwagon.
- Loyalty: Think about your favorite podcast at the moment. Have you checked out the host(s) on social media? Audiences have the ability to connect and engage like never before. Start now and establish a strong, loyal audience before it’s too late.

Last year, Ikea partnered up with some world-class designers for a limited rug release.
The result: People went nuts! Literally. It was like Black Friday at WalMart.
So, Ikea mixed it up this year and only allowed customers to purchase rugs if ‘they were touched.’ Yes, you read that correctly.
Watch the video to see what the heck we’re talking about.
