Episode Summary

At Motion we believe a podcast is more than an audio channel. When you create shows designed to help your customers it can actually drive your company’s entire content marketing strategy.

You create content through collaboration industry experts internal experts partners prospects and customers.

You create content that answers your customers biggest questions not Google’s algorithm.

You create content you’re excited to share because it actually helps.

You create content that’s distributed in audio video or written formats whatever works best for your customer.

With a podcast you create a flywheel of activities that helps your company grow.

In this episode of Recorded Content our host Tristan Pelligrino shares how Motion approaches branded podcasts and highlights why Motion has built its own network of shows.

Key Insights

  • Podcasts have outgrown their initial form of only being audio content. Instead, you can use each episode to create videos, long-form videos, video clips, and videos for social media such as Instagram Reels and Stories, and written pieces.
  • A podcast can drive a company’s entire marketing strategy when exploited in such a manner. It allows you to reach your customers on the channels they mostly visit.
  • You create content through collaboration whether that’s with industry experts, internal experts, partners, prospects, or customers.
  • You create content that answers your customers’ biggest questions, not Google’s algorithm.
  • You create content you’re excited to share because it helps you create content that’s distributed in a way that works best for your customers.
  • Success comes when you know your niche. So creating a podcast starts with defining the audience and the topics you want to cover. If you try to make it for everyone, you’ll probably make it for no one or end up with an inconsistent listener base. And what you want to achieve is an audience that trusts you and turns to you for specific answers.
  • However, it is possible to cover various fields through multiple shows if you have the resources. Take Motion for example. We have more than one podcast at Motion. It’s what we call Motion’s Network of Shows. Each show that’s a part of our network is designed to help a very specific audience in a different way.
  • Explore, test, and release your creativity through a podcast. That’s the great thing about our space. It enables you to try something new. No one expects you to reinvent the wheel but to approach the same topic from a different angle, structure, and sources.
  • For instance, Motion’s Network of Shows included Recorded Content, Rep Your Brand, and Content Logistics, and we later acquired Taking the Lead. But at the end of the year, we’ve launched three more shows. The first show I want to highlight is the Notorious Thought Leader. The show is hosted by Erin Balsa and explores what it means to be a thought leader in B2B. I’m looking forward to what we do with The Anonymous Marketer. It is a brand new podcast hosted by Nick Bennett. Finally, we’ve launched a new show in collaboration with Juice. Slice and Dice is a video series for B2B marketers looking to get inspiration from the best content available.

Rep Your Brand has been running for two years, and I’m excited to say that we’re pivoting the theme for Nick’s show and launching a new podcast that’ll take the place of Rep Your Brand.
