Why Should I Listen to Podcasts?

Keeping up with trends via newsletters and blog posts requires your full attention. While some podcast episodes can be around an hour long, you can be doing other things at the same time. It’s also a very portable medium, and since audio files are small, they don’t take forever to load nor do they require lots of data to load on mobile devices. 

In terms of eCommerce, interviews are much more popular over podcasts rather than on video and print. You can find lots of interesting, smart people in the industry through podcasts without having to lift a finger. 

In terms of actual content, listeners can learn about various topics in a casual and easy-to-understand format. You also have the opportunity to network and make connections with fascinating people, as the hosts and guests usually talk about ways to reach them at the end of episodes. 

We know choosing a show can be overwhelming. Now that we’ve convinced you to listen to eCommerce podcasts, we can help you decide on which is best for you!
