Podcasting is an excellent way for marketing firms to reach new audiences and build trust with their existing audience. It also has the ability to position the firm as a thought-leader and/or expert in their space, as very few people are doing it well, especially when compared with blogging, which is so common these days.

Much of the content isn’t professionally produced, and even when it is, it’s made for much less than other media content. So what is it about youtube? Youtube is short and digestible content. That means if you want your youtube content to be successful it needs to be short and pack a punch.
