Do you enjoy learning new things but never seem to have the time to devote to seminars or classes? Are you an avid multitasker who likes to exercise your brain while in the car, on the treadmill or out walking the dog? If you prefer a more casual way to stay on top of new trends in the design world, podcasts offer a quick and easy way to learn about the trade, listen to interviews with top designers, catch up on the latest new products or just find a bit of inspiration.
The “on-demand” format is great for listening on the go, and you can always pause and return later if something more pressing pops up.
Podcasts are also a great way to promote your business, whether creating your own podcast for consumers in your market or doing a guest stint on an existing podcast. If you like the idea of growing your presence, check out some of these hot podcasts, and if you think you’d be a great fit, why not pitch yourself as a potential guest?
