Is It Worth Doing A Podcast In 2024?

The podcasting opportunity has indeed changed, but in this episode, you will hear why we believe Podcasting is still one of the best organic mediums for marketers and entrepreneurs (no matter what type of business you have).

Smart Marketer CEO (and veteran Podcaster) Molly Pittman talks with Darren Clarke (Executive Producer for HubSpot Original Podcasts) and Jessie Clarke (the producer of this show) about how far Podcasting has come and where it is going.

You’ll hear about the impact of Podcasting on Molly’s career (and how the medium continues to feed and grow their businesses), as well as the impact of AI, YouTube, and the value of Niche Podcasts.

You Will Learn:

  • The biggest reason to do a Podcast in 2024
  • How to fuel and improve your content distribution system
  • How much should a Podcast be scripted?
  • An episode planning tip that will remove 80% of the potential problems


And More…

“Talking into the mic is probably 20 percent of what actually goes into making a really amazing show”. Molly Pittman
