The Business Podcast Blueprint Show

The Business Podcast Blueprint is a show about running a podcast for your business or company. Podcasting FOR your business or company is different than podcasting as a passion project, or even with your podcast AS a business.

You need to meet real organizational goals with a minimum of time and energy, because the podcast is just one part of all that you do. Whether you’re a solopreneur who is running a whole business, or the marketing manager overseeing multiple cross-channel campaigns company podcasts have specific requirements, restrictions and opportunities that hobby, passion and solo-project podcasts just don’t have. But if you can work out a good system, you can shorten sales cycles, pre-warm leads, meet new partners, increase your brand awareness and authority, and generate weekly (or more!) fresh, dynamic content, all in the course of producing your show.

This podcast will help you do that, with answers to every question you’ve got about podcasting, and interviews with different subject matter experts in the content marketing and multi-media industries.

Megan Dougherty is a digital marketer with over a decade of experience consulting and supporting business owners, who co-founded One Stone Creative in 2017 as a podcast production agency for business owners. One Stone Creative helps plan, produce and promote podcast episodes with a high-touch, consultative approach.

Every business is different, and so is every business podcast. Over 5 years, and thousands of podcast episodes, we’ve identified the “blueprints” that make a company podcast successful, and are thrilled to be sharing that information with you. 

Please enjoy our shownotes and more!
