Branded podcasts are created and produced by a company or a brand, primarily as a marketing tool. These podcasts are typically designed to align with the brand's identity, values, and target audience.
The content of branded podcasts can vary widely depending on the brand's goals and target market, but they often focus on topics related to the brand's industry or niche without being too promotional or sale-oriented.
Having a branded podcast can significantly benefit your company in multiple ways. Here are some of the key benefits:
Brand awareness and visibility
Thought leadership and authority
Expand audience reach and brand identity
Build meaningful relationships
Improve internal company culture
Support other marketing channels
A branded podcast can be about a wide range of topics depending on the goals and target audience of the brand. We suggest considering things like your target audience, how relevant the subject is to your brand, and how engaging, entertaining, or educational the topic is.
Try to find a happy medium by choosing a subject area that’s broad but not too broad, while also ensuring each episode adds value to the listener through entertainment, advice, or insights.
There are a variety of metrics that Quill tracks that provide insight into the performance and impact of the podcast on your brand. Some of the metrics we look at include unique listeners, episode and show consumptions rates, B2B Analytics, audience demographics, and advertising performance.
Once we’ve identified your company’s goals for your podcast, we’ll build you a custom analytics report to provide answers and data-driven insights into whether or not your podcast is achieving the goals you set out for it.
