Web Finance Team: The Best Podcasts For Mastering Digital Marketing Skills

The Best Podcasts For Mastering Digital Marketing Skills

Podcasts are one of the best forms of entertainment in the 21st century. You can listen to them on the bus, on a walk, during a car ride, anywhere you want. What’s better than their convenience is that they can also be educational. 

There are so many podcasts that teach about topics in every industry. Experts have realized they can make a lot of money through podcasts, so they set up a podcast instead of writing books to share their skillsets. The digital marketing world is not different. 

There are many podcasts for those interested in mastering digital marketing, and today we’re going to interview the Web Finance Team to find out which are the best. The Web Finance Team is a team of marketing experts who have helped mentor countless businesses on digital marketing and similar business development strategies. 

All right, let’s start strong. What’s the number one digital marketing podcast you recommend? 

Spectacular Failures, hosted by Lauren Ober, is by far my favorite. It’s so unique because Ober covers failures, not successes. It shows you what not to do with your digital marketing strategy. 

The podcast is entertaining because some of the mistakes seem so obvious in hindsight, but honestly, we could’ve seen a young me make them. 

How about a podcast for less experienced individuals? New entrepreneurs, for example. 

Side Hustle Pro is fantastic for those individuals. Nicaila Matthews Okome hosts this podcast and looks at real-world examples of female entrepreneurs. She talks about their success and their steps to garner that success. 

It’s one of the most motivational podcasts that we have ever listened to at the Web Finance Team

Okay, you mentioned a podcast for what not to do, but how about a podcast for what to do?

In that case, you’ll want Amy Porterfield’s Online Marketing Made Easy Podcast. She covers the very basics of digital marketing. Finding your niche, lead magnets, mailing lists, CTAs, all of it. 

We recommend it to anyone, whether they’re new or experienced because the team at Web Finance Team guarantees that you’ll learn something. 

How about something inspirational? Side Hustle Pro is a good example, but are there any more Podcasts that you listen to to get motivated for digital marketing?

How about A Bit of Optimism? That’s the name of the Podcast! A Bit of Optimism, hosted by Simon Sinek. The Podcast is highly entertaining and exciting. Simon talks to many entrepreneurs and gives you a real glimpse into their life. 

They get genuine; they don’t sugarcoat things, which can be a little intense at times but very motivational in others. If you’re an entrepreneur or interested in becoming one with the help of digital marketing, this is the podcast for you. 

All right, so finally. Daily podcast? A podcast that keeps you up to date on current events in digital marketing?

Today In Digital Marketing is aptly named and precisely what you’re going to want. The podcast is hosted by Tod Maffin and gives a super quick rundown of everything happening on social media platforms and Google. 

We listen to it every day, and we recommend others to do the same, as it’s one of the best ways to stay up to date on what the big guys are doing. 

Energize Your Podcast Focus With Seated Exercise

Podcasts are informational, fun, and an easy way to get our news either while on-the-go or in chill mode.  They are also a way to energize our minds – and our bodies – at the same time. Finding the time to exercise just got easier for both podcasters and podcast listeners.  By engaging in seated exercise, at a slow pace, while engaging your audience, or when listening to  a new podcast, you can clear the cobwebs, focus better, and be far more strategic.

Harvard Medical School recently published another study demonstrating a clear link between exercise, brain health, and focus.  According to this study, “exercise helps memory and thinking through both direct and indirect means.  The benefits of exercise come directly from its ability to release insulin resistance, reduce inflammation, and stimulate the release of growth factors – chemicals in the brain that affect the health of brain cells, the growth of new blood vessels in the brain, and even the abundance and survival of new brain cells.”

In other words, exercise not only changes our ability to focus and work, but it also enhances our ability to process inputs – like podcasts – on a different level.  Low intensity exercise, like that found on a treadmill, is known to be more effective, with literally hundreds of studies globally stating similar findings.  Whether you are time challenged, energy challenged, or physically challenged, the need for exercise remains the same.  The question is which modality of exercise is right for you? And how will you fit it into your already-packed day?

When researching this article, I came across a new exercise machine called the miniTREAD®.  This is likely exactly what you think it is: a compact seated treadmill that can be used anywhere at your convenience.  There are no straps to attach, and this fully compact device gives one heck of a workout.  In fact, there are professional athletes that have used the miniTREAD and felt it has given them a very challenging workout.  And, to this frequent exerciser who loves to be challenged, that’s saying a lot, especially for a product that can fit under a desk or in front of a tv.  In fact, it’s the perfect complement to listening to a daily or weekly podcast because it enhances focus on the podcast content itself.

Created and sold by OnTheMuv, this simple-to-use seated treadmill is even easier to put together.  The controller was designed with raised, color-coded buttons so anyone can use the machine – even while focusing their attention elsewhere.  For podcasters, our attention is always in other places – whether we are recording a show, listening to someone else’s show, or interviewing a guest.  For listeners, our focus is on the content as it whizzes by in our ears (or on our screen).

For those who want to focus more deeply on the content in a podcast, the miniTREAD is perfect.  It enhances productivity and the movement from the repetitive steps you take and helps increase focus and memory. If you are “muving” while listening, podcast content will be retained longer, mean more, and resonate more clearly.  Maximizing your podcast experience, while exercising at the same time, is what it’s all about.
