I am a bit late to the podcast game, but I’m rapidly catching up! If you are still not sold on listening to podcasts, you’re missing out on a learning and entertainment style that is highly addictive! Whether you are looking for how to build a kick-ass web site or a fun science podcast for your kids on the drive to school, there is something for everyone.
I’ve listed below my current top five for building your SEO on your website/blog posts and marketing with social media. There are dozens of fantastic podcasts full of great content, and I’ve been obsessed with these particular podcasts because the material is all actionable and fluff is minimal!
I listen to podcasts on my phone with the preloaded podcast app. These are also available on I-Tunes, Spotify, and other formats.
BONUS: I have also included an affirmation podcast. Blogging can be a bit of a drain on our positive energy sometimes. I find it to be helpful to start the day or week with a focused affirmation. There are many inspirational shows out there. The one I choose will focus in on topics such as sleep, school, and gratitude.
