The power of the spoken word as a means to convey a story is also a powerful strategy when it comes to your content marketing plan. With so many content strategies to choose from, using audio is often overlooked and underrated. This event is designed to show how audio can be a strong, effective content strategy that offers new ways to connect and engage with your audiences! Go beyond the basic idea of what you think podcasting is and expand your knowledge of how digital audio and social media can work together successfully.
PAGATIM’s media experts will start with a short presentation on the audience for on-demand audio content and then we will hear 4 perspectives from current podcasters on why they have invested in this growing media channel.
Moderator will be John McPhee, Vice President of Formic Media and some of the panel members include:
