Got Something to Say?

Got Something to Say?

Should you start a podcast? Considering the success many businesses have had through podcasting, the seemingly obvious answer would be yes. But is there a deeper question to answer here?
Take a step back to when you started your business in the first place. Most likely, you didn’t decide to embark on this journey simply because other people have been very successful. You had to start with a product. If you have a product you believe in and that you believe will enrich the lives of others, then by all means, start a business!
Similarly, before deciding to start a podcast, you must take a step back and ask yourself, “Do I have something I need to say?” This is the question posed by Joel Comm, co-host of the wildly successful Bad Crypto Podcast, which has gained over 3.5 million downloads to date. According to him, starting a podcast isn’t a simple marketing decision for your business. It’s not a clear-cut, “Yes, every business should have a podcast,” kind of situation. But if you have a message and a passion for sharing it, it’s time to think about diving in!

Content Experience Lightning Round

What’s your go-to media for entertainment?
It all depends on the situation. When it’s nice out, Joel likes to be outside and active, so he enjoys podcasts ranging from Mike Rowe’s The Way I Heard It to shows about online gaming. When it comes to TV, he’s currently watching Breaking Bad for the third time! He’s also a huge fan of Arrested Development for something more on the lighter side.
See you next week!
