Podcast Network

A podcast network is a collection of podcasts under the umbrella of one company, which promotes those shows with a shared platform of advertisers. While the original goal of podcast networks was to bring in more ad revenue, becoming part of a network today often comes with other benefits, like help getting your podcast produced and distributed.

What do podcast networks do?

Podcast networks can help creators focus on what they do best — making their podcast — by taking on other important tasks, such as the following:

  • Help podcasts with their marketing and advertising. Podcast networks usually have existing relationships with companies that are already sponsoring other shows. So while you do share the revenue, you may gain access to better sponsorship opportunities. Plus, you don’t have to do the legwork of identifying sponsorship leads, pitching to get their support, and negotiating their rates.

  • Offer production help. You may also get support from a podcast producer to help with editing and post-production, which takes another responsibility out of your hands. They might also help with administrative tasks like researching show topics and booking guests.

  • Audience growth. Podcast networks have built-in audiences with other shows in their collection, as well as a marketing team to take over audience growth for you. They also cross-promote on their other podcasts, which can take the form of another podcast airing one of your episodes or you going on another podcast as a guest.

  • Develop opportunities beyond the podcast. Some podcast networks may have connections in other media channels, such as television, film, and books. That could potentially open the door to opportunities for your brand beyond the podcast, like speaking engagements or a book deal. Some podcasts have even been turned into their own television series, such as Homecoming and Lore. Read More

Capture Attention

Year after year, video retains its rank as the most popular form of content among consumers. In 2018, Cisco forecasted that video would make up more than 80% of all internet traffic by 2022. Given the ever-growing number of online platforms catering to consumers’ preference for video in 2023 and the billions of users who continue to gravitate toward it, this prediction seems to have been on track.

From TikTok to YouTube Shorts to Instagram Reels, social media and video go hand in hand, but brands looking to reach their target audiences with video shouldn’t forget about other outlets. Whether they opt to leverage TV, streaming services, digital billboards or any number of other video-friendly marketing channels, as the members of Forbes Agency Council know, the most important thing to consider is how to stand out among the torrent of video content consumers encounter every day.

We believe that meditation is an incredible tool to quiet the mind so you can get to know yourself intimately. And when you know yourself, when you practice over and over again listening to your inner voice, you know what you need and you know what decisions to make. You’re able to separate the “noise” of the world (anxiety about current events, for example) from the “voice” inside, who guides you to peace.
