Why Content Marketers Should Consider Starting a Podcast

Podcasts are having a moment right now, and they've become a great tool for content marketers to reach and connect with their audiences.

CMSWire's Dennis Shiao spoke to the experts to find out how starting a podcast can benefit a brand.

Seth Price, VP Industry Relations at Placester, hosts a podcast called The Craft of Marketing in which he interviews marketing experts.
