Podcasting at the heart of your marketing mix
In recent years, podcasting has become an increasing trend in marketing territory. The FD Mediagroep believes podcasting should be at the heart of a good marketing mix. But that’s easier said than done, which is why we’d love to tell you more about the best way to do it. And what better way to convey that than in — you guessed it — a podcast!
In this podcast, we discuss the latest marketing trends and linking podcasting to them, figures from the podcast market and what it’s ultimately all about, i.e., conveying your brand’s message to your customers.
Opportunities offered by podcast marketing
This show explains why podcasts work so well. For example, Tom van Bommel explains that when we hear something but don’t see it, we’re going to visualise it mentally. And that visualisation has a more lingering effect in our brain than when we watch a visual advertisement.
Susanne van Nierop explains that podcasts are largely so successful because they respond to people’s desire for instant gratification. Listeners can choose where and when they want to listen to the content.
Podcasts are here to stay. They’re part of the marketing mix and an attractive format to experiment with, especially now that the prices of different media are rising.
The podcast market in numbers
Forty-two percent of Dutch people sometimes listen to podcasts, and this number rises to as much as 57% if you focus on the highly educated business market. In addition, 6 out of 10 podcast listeners sometimes look up something after listening to a podcast, e.g., a product or a brand.
