The podcast industry wasn't even an industry a few years ago – it was this quirky, independent thing that hobbyists were doing. Now it's a full-blown media industry that will soon be worth more than a billion dollars. What does it look like? What roles do various kinds of people and organizations play? Many companies who have a need to more effectively reach their audience are trying to figure out how podcasting fits into their plans. They know it's important but they don't understand the medium.
This interactive workshop, created especially for organizations that are ready to move forward with their own podcast program, helps communications departments and marketing teams get their podcast from idea to launch. Elaine guides participants through the steps and techniques necessary to create and operate a successful podcast campaign.
This workshop helps participants understand the light-speed at which businesses are changing. It's no longer just "nice" to innovate – it's imperative. But we are all individual human beings and change is inherently hard.
