Show Notes: Leveraging Podcasting to Establish Credibility and Expertise

Joseph discussed how sales teams can work with customers to build relationships instead of relying on traditional methods such as cold calls or emails. One method to help with “relationship enablement,” as Joseph calls it, with current customers, prospects, and industry influencers, is to launch a podcast.

“Starting your own podcast or hosting it is extremely valuable for growing all the skills you want to grow in as a marketer.”

According to Joseph, hosting a podcast requires skills such as asking the right questions, going deeper into the topics, being curious, writing posts for social media yourself, and doing guest outreach at least for the first few times.

Whether you’re launching a new podcast or you already have one, Joseph has a few tips on how to establish credibility as a host:

• Focus on the category side of things by bringing industry experts from outside the company onto the show
• Gain credibility by associating yourself with the experts
• Show your expertise by asking specific and informed questions during the podcast recordings
• And use your guests as a way to demonstrate your expertise in specific areas by sharing your thoughts on the topic

Most of all, you need to be curious and dig deeper to find unknown unknowns.

Building a personal brand is key to career growth. 

As a final takeaway on the importance of personal branding and podcasting, Joseph shares, “I highly recommend that you jump on your personal brand because it is absolutely the best thing you could do for your career. 

If somebody’s in college right now and they start a podcast in their senior year, interview leaders at companies they want to work for, and start being active on LinkedIn, they are going to get a way better job coming out of college than somebody that’s just applying to whatever companies might want them.

And if they continue doing that over the next couple of years, they will skyrocket their career growth.”
