Podcasts for German listeners
Audio marketing is a thing
As your digital marketing agency in Germany, we’d like to recommend using audio marketing to reach and inform/entertain your customers. Podcasts should be among your preferred instruments in your 2020s communications portfolio. In Germany, the number of podcast listeners more than doubled in the past five years and this trend is bound to continue.
A German podcast will strengthen your external and internal communications. There are several reasons why. It’s a great tool to communicate your brand to German-speaking consumers in the DACH region.
You can inform potential customers on the benefits of your products and services and you can establish thought leadership on the topics that are important for your brand positioning. And with a podcast, you will have many options concerning the format and the tone of voice.
Podcast targets & podcast target audience
Before starting a German podcast it’s necessary to evaluate the need it should fill within an organization. Is the aim to create a better environment for open communication and to therefore drive innovation? Would you like to make the brand narrative more comprehensive to your local subsidiaries or employees in general?
There are many reasons why a German podcast could be a great way to foster communication with your German customers or within your organization in Germany. But it is essential for its success to be clear on its purpose, first. As your German digital marketing agency, we will find the optimal way to weave your German corporate podcast into your existing communications strategy.
Research for German podcasts
Especially for company internal podcasts which aim to improve the communication within an organization, it is necessary to assess the status quo first. This can be done with the help of surveys to gain quantitative data or by interviewing stakeholders in different departments or branches. Digital marketing companies in Germany can help you with this task.
The results of the initial research phase will form the basis for identifying relevant KPIs and defining benchmarks to measure against later on.
Your German digital marketing agency will help you develop the right format for your podcast. If you choose us, and based on the targets, target audience and research, we will find the perfect format for your German podcast. Whether your podcast will consist of weekly episodes of 20 minutes in length each featuring a Q&A between your CEO and selected employees or rather 60 minutes long discussions of team members with other industry thought leaders will be determined in this phase.
There is no “one size fits all” approach in the podcast market. Finding your niche and the content that works best for your purpose is at the heart of this process.
