Did you know that there are about 800,000 active podcasts around the world right now? In the US alone, there are about 86 million podcast listeners, prompting entertainment experts to believe that podcasts are becoming mainstream. This shouldn’t be too surprising since there are lots of great shows out there and they cater to very specific interests, making them all the more interesting for its audience.
With such massive numbers, it also means that businesses should start to get in on these podcasts to reach specific segments of the market. The listeners of these shows are already specialized and niche, so it’s just a matter of finding the right podcast to advertise in.
But then again, with the huge number of podcasts available right now, doing so can be a bit overwhelming for businesses. Who has the time to comb through all of these shows? They’re not even available in one place so it can be a tedious task to locate the right podcasts to work with!
