Thank goodness for podcasts and audio books, right? It’s so nice to be able to consume content while doing other things! While I love a good ol’ fashioned book, I have limited time to sit on the couch and read as much as I’d like since having kids.
Listening to podcasts has helped to keep me informed in regards to social media trends and tips for entrepreneurs. They’ve really helped to make me feel connected to others on this crazy journey of starting a business. While there are several informative and entertaining ones out there, I thought that I’d share some of my current favorites…
My Top Podcast Recommendations
1. Social Media Marketing Podcast with Michael Stelzner
This podcast offers so much great information in regards to *surprise* social media marketing! I always seem to get some valuable actionable tips from each episode. If upping your social media game is on your to-do list, check this one out!
2. The Portfolio Life with Jeff Goins
I love this podcast for the authenticity and perspective. I think anyone who is trying to carve out their own creative niche, would find this podcast insightful. If you read last week’s post, you already know I’m a big fan of his message and what he’s doing.
3. Online Marketing Made Easy with Amy Porterfield
I could listen to Amy talk all day! Her calm voice makes me feel like I can anything! Amy is great about giving practical, tested advice on her show. I’m super excited to hear her talk and attend her break-out session at the upcoming Business Boutique conference this November!
4. Read to Lead Podcast with Jeff Brown
A couple of my favorite episodes ever, have been from this podcast. The guests on this show are top-notch, amazing individuals and I get so much wisdom and value from them. Jeff’s interview with John C. Maxwell about adding value to people was absolutely life-changing. I shared it with my husband and it impacted him deeply. I seriously feel like things make so much more sense when I’m done listening.
5. Art of Paid Traffic with Rick Mulready
I’ve really been digging more into Facebook Ads and I plan to offer this as one of my services. The targeting that can be done on this platform is impressive and can help scale a business. If this is something you’re interested in utilizing to spread awareness, grow your email list, and get leads, you’ll find this podcast to be highly informative. Rick does a great job of breaking things down and explaining them in a way that’s easy to understand.
6. The Business of Story with Park Howell
We’ve all been hearing more about the importance of story when it comes to marketing. This podcast fascinates me and I’ve learned so much about the criteria for a good story. I have a lot to learn still, but this podcast has been a good start!
7. Build Your Tribe with Chalene Johnson
I know there are a lot of Chalene fans out there, and I’m one of them! When I first came across her podcast, I instantly felt connected to her. She’s originally from the midwest and says “dude.” I was sold! I love her short little snack-able episodes on entrepreneurship and social media.
8. Catholic Creatives
This is a fairly new podcast, and as you can tell from the title, this podcast is directed towards a pretty specific group of people. If you happen to be a Christian who is passionate about hope, beauty, and quality art being used to make a positive difference for the Church, then check this one out. The interviews are great and the discussions are insightful.
There are so many more that I’m subscribed to and enjoy listening to. I could quickly turn this list into 20!
