Podcasts are all the craze when it comes to on-demand listening. While radio has seen a slight comeback, more individuals are turning to podcasts to satisfy their listening needs and to stay up to date on subjects they care about. In fact, according to Buzzsprout, 75% of the U.S. population over the age of 12 had listened to a podcast just under a year ago. That same report states over 90 million Americans are weekly podcast listeners. With the number of individuals who listen to podcasts, they are a great medium to increase visibility and brand awareness and should be considered an asset for nonprofits.
When it comes to your nonprofit, appearing on podcasts can allow you to expand your reach and deliver your message to an audience that may have originally been unreachable through normal print mediums. But how do you land an opportunity with a podcast?
Partnering with a PR agency that specializes in nonprofit public relations can give you the tools you need to secure opportunities with podcasts in your space.
