The best marketing podcasts get me thinking, with hosts who are both fun and smart. So, I started by asking for recommendations and then dug into research.

After countless hours of listening to tons of podcasts, I found the ones I believe can benefit anyone from the marketing industry, be it content marketing tips, leadership, strategy building, advertising, or team building.

What To Learn

While you can find a lot of topics of your preference in this podcast, my favorite episode is “Content Marketing Strategy in the Age of AI,” discussed with guest Robert Rose, renowned content strategist.

The reason I personally like this podcast is that it has given me great insights into how we can explore or revisit our content marketing strategy in the age of AI. I learned how created content and constructed content are two different concepts in marketing.

Robert Rose states how AI is good for constructed content (those that are already created) but not for created content (inventing). I could learn how content strategy is not a vision or tactic but a logical plan/ roadmap toward the goal.

It is all about how you are overarching a set of activities and planning and fitting it as a part of your business. To explain his thoughts, he also gave examples that make it even easier to understand.

She said her primary reason for writing her book on Organic Social Media Strategy was because she felt that there was a gap in the organic social media space. In her book, she points out that teams in organizations have a tendency to forget social media or take it seriously as they should.

She points out how social media is not always brought into strategy planning, so the social media manager is often left to figure things out themselves, and this book can guide them through it.

I also learned how we just can't replace or transition our target audience from one channel to the other. They have to be willing to move and adapt themselves. To explain this, she gives the example of Threads and how people are gradually transitioning to it every day.

According to Tim, you can either do it for fun or take it as a serious business and progress accordingly. While doing so, how to focus on a particular thing, topic, or platform at a time and not try to be everywhere at once.

"The Ahrefs Podcast" By Tim Soulo

Host: Tim Soulo, Frequency: Daily

What Does It Offer

I recently started listening to the Ahrefs podcast, which is on my preference list because of its comprehensiveness. Honestly, I learned a lot of new things, and what’s best is that Tim or any of the guest speakers he brings do not gate-keep. Most importantly, the conversation was very insightful and natural.

What To Learn

I like the particular episode “Million Dollar Marketing Secrets: How Laura Roeder Positioned Her Way To SaaS Gold Empire.” And if you are an entrepreneur, creator, business owner, or someone just into the industry, please listen to this episode. You will thank me later.

From running a brand-new SaaS ramp up to $1M ARR in just 11 months to discussing how Laura grew MeetEdgar, I got insider tips on how Ahrefs marketing operates. They both share what marketing tactics they follow for their company and whether those tactics still work.

Currently the CEO of Paperbell, Laura shares that to grow MeetEdge, she first built an audience and then the product through guest blogging, early podcast interviews, running Google ads for blogs, and offering shorter trial and referral schemes to customers.

She invested a lot of time and money in Facebook ads in the initial years and then started blogging to build up a library of good articles, having organic traffic to get a position at SERP.

I learned how good articles will fetch good results when properly optimized and that it's better to promote and put money on interesting articles than promote every other one.
