As a business, staying alive in the current times without content marketing is hard. Buyers are more cautious than ever before and think twice before trusting a brand. If they don't see content from a company online, they’re likely to view it with suspicion.

So getting good at content marketing is important, bordering on essential. But how do you do that? 

This is where content marketing podcasts come in. These are a treasure trove of insights where industry leaders share their experiences, tips, and tricks on the content marketing industry. 

If you don't have time to read a book or attend a course on the topic, you can listen to a podcast while commuting or doing chores.

But what are the best content marketing podcasts? Read on to find out. 

What should you look for in a content marketing podcast?

Here are several elements to consider when choosing a content marketing podcast

Hosts' expertise

Try to see what the host has accomplished in the content marketing space. You can go to their LinkedIn profile, their webpage, or their YouTube channel to ‘spy’ on them and find out what they accomplished. 

Also see what people on the internet have to say in general. 

Checking for credentials is important in the podcasting space, as plenty of people start podcasts without really having expertise in their area. 

Relevancy to your niche

Are you a social media manager? A content creator? A copywriter? 

Which part of the content marketing industry are you a part of? 

You’ll want to find a podcast that’s related to your domain of expertise – it can be a waste of time listening to podcasts that aren’t relevant. The exception being if you wish to specialize in another field!

Actionable insights

Listening to podcasts can be entertaining, but it shouldn’t come at the cost of educational value. Look for those episodes that provide actionable tips, strategies, and techniques that get you tangible results. 

Keeps itself abreast of the latest developments

The rules in the world of content fluctuate constantly. Platforms like Google, Facebook, and Twitter are constantly changing their algorithm. A strategy that worked marvelously a month before can become a total dud now.

So look for a podcast where the host stays updated with the latest news and trends. Ideally, they should also have relevant insights on how to capitalize on the new changes. 

Episode variety

Having a variety of episode formats keeps things fresh and entertaining. 

Sometimes, a solo podcaster ranting for minutes on end can be engaging. Other times, you’ll learn more from a nuanced conversation with a guest. Yet, other times, a deep dive into a case study might be just what you need to grow your business.

Plenty of engagement

A large following and plenty of engagement is a good sign. This kind of social proof signals that people have gained value from the podcast, and you probably will too!

Get Started

Here’s how to start your own content marketing podcast with Riverside:

Step 1: Choosing a topic, create branding, and plan the podcast 

Which part of the content marketing world do you want to tackle in your podcast? Copywriting? Blog Posts? Landing pages? Or are you knowledgeable enough to take on the whole field? 

Choose your field of interest depending on your expertise. Ideally, you’d want to find a niche that hasn’t been explored and is interesting enough to draw people to your podcast. Also figure out the target audience that will be interested in your niche. 

Once you know what your podcast will be about, it’s time to figure out the name of your podcast and decide on its format. Do you want a solo, co-hosted, interview, or storytelling style of podcast?  

Get into a creative mode and come up with your brand’s cover art, descriptions, intro and outro music, etc. 

Then decide on the topics for the first few podcasts, and come up with the outline or script for the first podcast. 

Step 2: Equipment and software

It’s shopping time. You’ll want to purchase the right equipment to record your podcast.  

Hardware-wise, you’ll want to purchase a microphone, a camera (if it's a video podcast), quality headphones, a recording device, or a computer. 

Software-wise, you’ll want a recording platform and an audio and video editor.  Riverside is a great option for this as it can record in 4K video and lossless 48 kHz audio. It comes with a text-based editor that lets you edit content by making changes in the transcript.  

Other recommended but not vital gear includes an audio interface, pop filter, lighting, mic arm, and a shock mount. 

Step 3: Record your podcast in high-quality

Find your quiet recording space. If you’re shooting a video, set up lighting and the background. Also add your guests and make sure that their mics are working properly. 

Finally, when you’re all set record your podcast. Here’s how to do so with Riverside.

  • Log in to Riverside,
  • Create a recording studio. Add a studio name and select the recording type. 
  • Enter your recording studio, choose your ideal settings, and then click Join Studio. 
  • Now click the Record button and start recording! 

Step 4: Edit and polish your podcast

Remove any auditory distractions, discard any irrelevant/boring pieces of content, and spice it up with audio effects. 

Riverside’s Editor makes editing super easy thanks to the below features:

  • Text-based editing so trimming your recording is as easy as deleting text in a transcript
  • Changing layouts between 9:16, 1:1, 16:9 so you’re ready for any social media platform
  • Seamless timeline for trimming and adjusting your recording
  • Customizable background and logos so you can keep on brand
  • AI transcriptions and captions in over 100 languages
  • Background noise removal and automated audio-fine tuning

Step 5: Publish and promote your podcast

Submit your podcast to directories like Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and others for distribution.

After publishing, you should also invest in getting your podcast out there. Market your podcast on social media platforms, blogs, and newsletters, or join a Facebook group where you can mention your podcast. 

A good way to create viral clips from your podcast and share them on social media is using Riverside’s Magic Clips. It uses AI to automatically find viral-worthy clips from your long-form podcasts and extract them.
