I’ve been on a podcasts kick lately consuming all the awesomeness that I could find. After listening to over 10 business podcasts I have whittled it down to my top 5 which I have subscribed to and have been working through past episodes. If you are in marketing, an entrepreneur, thinking of creating passive income, a blogger or work in social media then keep on reading!
Here are the descriptions of each show and why I like them…
Description: How to create influence that matters and content that creates conversion. Interviews and practical strategies from top internet influencers on how to build your email list, create a virtual community, strengthen a tribe and bring a powerful group of like minded people together to make a difference in the world. How to create passive income by learning best practices to cultivate, build and care for customers , community and tribe. How to serve your community with integrity and value, with tips to work less and create more.
Why I Like It: Chalene makes it seem like she’s talking to you as if you were the only person in the room. She has an ease about her and an energy that makes you excited to build a business. She’s also really good at reminding her listeners to stop consuming and implement. She’s the reason why I launched the wedding cancellation checklist website and an Instagram account for my future book Love Lost Life Found. Some of her Periscopes are created into podcasts so if you watch her on that platform and listen to her podcast you’ll get a double dose of content.
Description: “Facebook Marketing All in One for Dummies” co-author and online entrepreneur Amy Porterfield shows you exactly how to monetize your online marketing and blogging efforts using her own tested, ACTIONABLE lead generation strategies — so you can successfully launch and promote a new program, grow your email list, get more leads, build your authority, turn your customers into raving advocates OR simply find the time (and mindset!) to rock your social media and content marketing. From creating an online course to video marketing, webinar recording, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, new content creation (including eBooks, guides and cheat sheets) and email marketing, Amy is going to reveal what works (and what doesn’t) once and for all. Why? Because after an awesome, inspiring stint with Harley Davidson and Tony Robbins, Amy figured out what she really loves: helping small business owners like you break down BIG, powerful strategies into step-by-step actions…so you can see BIG, powerful results, fast.
Why I Like It: Amy is a detailed oriented and action taking woman after my own heart. Her free downloads to accompany each podcast are golden and so easy to follow and use. I found her podcast through Chalene Johnson and they’re podcasts are well paired together. Chalene is sometimes big picture inspirational and then Amy tells you how to take the right steps to implement. I’ve had to take a quick break from listening to Amy’s podcasts because there is so much goodness that I need to schedule time to go through her free print outs and implement action.
Description: Pat Flynn from The Smart Passive Income Blog reveals all of his online business and blogging strategies, income sources and killer marketing tips and tricks so you can be ahead of the curve with your online business or blog. Discover how you can create multiple passive income streams that work for you so that you can have the time and freedom to do what you love, whether it’s traveling the world, or just living comfortably at home. Although Pat confesses he is not a millionaire, he’s been supporting his family 100% with passive income generated online, easily earning a six-figure salary while working only a few hours a week. Automation, outsourcing, crowdsourcing, search engine optimization, building authority and trust, niche sites, social media, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Podcasting, eBooks, online courses, affiliate marketing, getting things done and everything that works (and doesn’t work) to help you better understand how to crush it with your online business.
Why I Like It: I found Pat Flynn’s podcast through Amy’s podcast. I’ve just started to get into his casts. I’ve been slowly working through them but I think he’s a great interviewer and also discusses tactics in detail so you can learn a bit more information then some other podcasts. If you want to build your own online business and learn about the fascinating world of passive income he is your go to guy!
Description: Business strategist and digital visionary Nathalie Lussier is an award-winning entrepreneur who inspires you to re-imagine what’s possible in your business with each episode of the Off The Charts Business Podcast. Nathalie’s topics range from tech tools to grow your business and book reviews that you take action on in both your personal life and your company. She shares her experience running a multi-six figure business and the goal-setting, mindset, and productivity skills required to get there, and beyond. Each episode is a short focused burst on a relevant topic for women entrepreneurs and the men who love them. She gets honest about location independence, email list building and online marketing, how to launch digital products, website creation, business management, and her top recommended online business resources. Nathalie Lussier started making web sites when she was 12 years old, and graduated with a degree in Software Engineering and a job offer from Wall Street. In a gutsy move, she turned down this job to start her own business right out of college. Today, Nathalie helps thousands of people all over the world use digital strategy to match their ambition, and has been featured in Forbes, Inc., Fast Company, Venture Beat, Mashable, Business Insider, Yahoo! Finance, and Under 30 CEO.
Why I Like It: I also discovered this podcast from Amy Porterfield. What I love about Nathalie’s podcast is they are extremely short and useful. If you don’t have 30 – 40 mins to listen to longer podcasts then these are perfect for bite size morsels of thinking that range from 5 – 15 mins. I like listening to a few of hers while I’m getting ready in the morning. I like listening to the more in depth podcasts when driving as I’m not multitasking.
