Which Types of Businesses Will Benefit Most From Having a Podcast?



We often get questions from CEOs and entrepreneurs asking if a podcast will benefit their unique business in the areas of thought leadership, visibility, lead generation and sales growth.


The really good news is that all types of businesses can benefit from having a podcast, but what you need to know is that success isn’t dependent on just launching or having a show. 


At Produce Your Podcast, we want you to focus on the long-term strategy and how your show will drive that strategy forward. If you are currently looking for a great agency to help you bring your show to life, make sure you ask questions about how that team will support the growth strategy in both the short and long term.


Read on for examples of different types of businesses that are utilizing podcasts. If you have a question about your specific business and how a podcast can support it, send us a message to discuss!



 Locally-Focused Businesses


Whether you’re a solo entrepreneur, a coaching or consulting firm, an author, or even an attorney, podcasting offers unique advantages. By creating valuable audio content, you can position yourself as an expert in your field, reach a wider audience, and attract new customers. 


One success story is that of Lesa Koski, the host of “Doing Divorce Different.” Through her podcast, she experienced a surge in business, necessitating the hiring of additional staff. Lesa is able to communicate with her target audience and provide them with valuable information directly benefiting them. She has also secured sponsors and is working on an online course that she can promote to her audience, too.


 “My Podcast has helped my business gross tremendously… I can’t even take on all the business that I have.” – Lesa Koski, Doing Divorce Different



Nonprofit Organizations


Podcasting is not limited to businesses driven by profits; it is equally effective for nonprofit organizations. Consider the example of the YMCA of Metro Atlanta, which successfully utilized its podcast to raise awareness about its programs, memberships, and fundraising initiatives. 


By leveraging the power of audio and video storytelling, the YMCA has not only connected with its community but also attracted new members and enhanced its funding prospects. A podcast enables nonprofits to communicate their mission, engage stakeholders, and build a strong support base. By adopting a strategic podcasting approach, nonprofits can drive both social impact and organizational growth.



Global Enterprises


Even for global businesses, podcasting holds immense potential. Take the case of Sectra, a $650M+ global tech company. Seeking to drive traffic to their booth at industry trade conferences, Sectra developed a highly specific podcast strategy. 


By educating and informing their target audience in advance, they ensured that attendees were well-prepared and eager to connect. This strategic podcasting approach resulted in increased visibility, a surge in qualified leads, and ultimately, more sales. Global companies can harness the power of podcasting to establish thought leadership, expand their market reach, and achieve their business objectives.



Remember, it’s not just about having a podcast; it’s about developing a well-thought-out strategy tailored to your business goals.
