In 2023, 2 billion people will be listening to podcasts globally. Is your magazine brand part of the audio evolution? This new media frontier has audiences exceeding social media giants like Twitter, TikTok, or Snapchat.

Magazine brands are story-tellers, and that makes them ideally suited to make the leap to podcasting. Maybe all the steps to DIY have you spinning your wheels? From production to monetization, to fast-tracking your distribution on podcast platforms, partnering with a specialized agency could be the answer. For content studios, podcasts can be an ace in your sleeve to create winning proposals.

In this audiotainment and educational session, Jennifer will help you understand how compelling storytelling and world-class production can amplify your podcast as a superpower for your brand.

This session is built for marketers, editors and publishers – anyone who depends on making good strategic decisions to grow the brand and audience. You’ll learn where the podcast channel numbers are headed, what it’s like to partner with an agency to develop your idea, which distribution platforms are surging now, what White Label podcast production is, how to monetize your podcast, and more.

Members of AMPA, Magazines BC, Magazines Canada, and AQEM members are eligible to register for FREE.
