Smart Marketers Listen To These 7 Podcasts

Dave Delaney

I am a big fan of podcasting, which explains why I have written about the medium so much over the years. I have hosted and produced multiple podcasts, and I have even co-hosted a workshop to teach people how to create a podcast from scratch. As a digital marketing consultant, I need to stay abreast of new trends and technologies to recommend to my clients. To stay up to date, I subscribe and listen to several fantastic marketing podcasts. The following are a few of my favorites that will help you too.

7 Marketing Podcasts You Should Try

The BeanCast. Each week host, Bob Knorpp, welcomes a panel of advertising and marketing experts to discuss current industry news. There are always a few laughs and ah-ha moments. This show leans more towards advertising than marketing but is still extremely valuable to marketers.

Marketing Over Coffee. I still remember back when hosts, John Wall and Christopher S. Penn, used to meet early in the mornings at a local Dunkin Donuts to record this show (hence the name). Both hosts are true kings of marketing who share industry secrets and opinions that will help you fuel your own marketing efforts. If you are seeking a conversational podcast that leans more towards marketing technology, this one is for you.

Beyond the To Do List. Erik J. Fisher hosts this interview show about ways to improve your productivity. It's not a marketing show, but everyone should strive to be more productive. If you are looking for clarity and techniques to get more done in a day, don’t miss this one.

Six Pixels of Separation. Mitch Joel is a well-respected thought-leader, author, speaker, and business leader in the digital marketing space. Each week he welcomes a guest author who shares insights. Mitch isn’t afraid of playing devil’s advocate, which helps keep the discussions interesting.

Duct Tape Marketing. If you are seeking a podcast that leans more towards sales but still includes plenty of marketing tips, don’t miss John Jantsch’s podcast. John is one of the best small business marketing consultants out there.

Marketing Smarts from MarketingProfs. Kerry O’Shea Gorgone is a smart, personable host. This podcasts delivers actionable insights and real marketing advice from industry experts. Kerry brings a refreshing sense of humor and personality to her style. She interviews authors and experts in marketing. I recommend subscribing to the MarketingProfs email newsletter too.

Social Media Examiner’s Social Media Marketing Podcast. Michael Stelzner interviews his guests to discuss marketing tips related specifically to social media. I love how Michael reiterates key points and pushes his guests to outline their tactics simply. If you are seeking marketing knowledge in social media, check out this show.

Everyone needs to be a better marketer

Whether you are building your business or career, everyone needs to be a better marketer. I am confident these seven podcasts will help you achieve this. 

If you enjoy the shows, be sure to leave a review in iTunes. Consider paying for the free advice with some positive words and a five-star rating. I know each host will love you for it.
