It’s 2019. Over 61% of the US has listened to a podcast in the last year.
Podcast listeners are 50% more likely to buy from a brand they’ve heard on a podcast. There’s now even a Netflix for Podcasts which raised money.
Whether you’re a content creator, a personal brand, or a micro-influencer, launching, growing and monetizing a podcast is now one of the top ways to build your brand.
