Why Podcasting?

Here's what we know about the power of podcasting.

More than 70% of Canadians 18+ listen to online audio every month.

There is ever growing opportunity for branded content.

Why podcasting works:

Podcasting is the new paradigm of permission-based marketing.


Unlike social media, your audience chooses to listen to you and they hang on your every word.


They are accessible from wherever they are; in the car, exercising, dog walking and more

They are intimate and interactive without being distracting

They are often hyper-niche and in-depth

They are designed to be binge-worthy

Audiences love  podcasts.


Podcasting helps your business :

Build brand authority

Express thought leadership and expertise

Cultivate conversations

Strengthen corporate culture

A few ways a branded podcast can help your business

Your podcast immediately leverages your warm audience

and creates new ones through targeted marketing, cross promotions and digital networking.

It acts as an evergreen content asset

that your audience can refer to over and over again.

It instantly positions you as a trusted authority

by humanizing your brand, leadership and voice.

"Or they are led by a tired team that just wants to get the job done as opposed to proactively involving themselves in what is being created. There's a massive chasm between the two types of companies and it ultimately affects the output. We certainly had our fair share of misses before we met SSN."

" There are a lot of production houses out there, but most have no journalistic experience."
