Podcasts are becoming ever so popular. Especially podcasts to help you build your brand. For some, podcasts are replacing TV time, radio and books. Whether you are interested in business, tech, life coaching, academia, culture, comedy or chat shows, there’s a podcast out there for you.

We’ve recently been chatting to fellow business owners about podcasts in our Facebook group, ‘Highly Unforgettable Brands‘ and our neighbours in the Canolfan S4C Yr Egin. They have shared their current podcast list which add value to their business and personal development.

Which topics came out on top? Fellow business owners are listening to leadership and entrepreneurial advice podcasts. How to build successful brands and podcasts on how to engage customers.   

Why listen to podcasts? At Highly, we listen to podcasts because it’s a good way to relax and learn at the same time. You can top up your knowledge on a topic and come up with new ideas for your business. Learning from other business experiences (the do’s and don’t) can guide you on your own business journey.

Podcast Apps

Getting the balance right between work and life is tricky, and the majority of us are listening to podcasts and audio books in the car. There are a number of apps out there you can use whether you have an apple or android phone. Spotify is also very popular for podcasts, take a look at this guide from Podcast Insight.
