Artificial intelligence promises to transform marketing, yet founder-led brands and SMEs eager to implement AI often find themselves lost in theoretical content. Articles outlining AI capabilities far outnumber practical guides on execution.
This scarcity of tactical, applied AI knowledge is a detail worth noting for founders ready to leverage AI to maximize revenue.
Why you should pay attention to AI literacy delivered in podcast format
Podcasts remain a surprising under-indexed marketing format. In fact, over 60% of all podcasts publish less than 7 episodes before fading into oblivion. Getting to 50 episodes puts podcasters in the top 1% (of audio content producers). It’s a good idea to pick the early adopters who choose to stand out by working in a blue ocean, not a red ocean, when it comes to creating AI literacy that finds its audience with less clutter.
With a majority of small businesses overwhelmed by options when it comes to AI tools that can help them, the format and track record of your instuctors matter more than ever. Podcasts that deliver unique, high-quality AI-focused content can provide the tactical “how-to” missing in most materials. By committing to in-depth, consistent episodes, these niche podcasts become a goldmine of practical insights on using AI for small business marketing. The longer-form, conversational format also allows much needed space to work through real listener challenges and use cases. Rather than slog through vague AI speculation, founder-led brands must seek out enduring podcasts delivering strategic AI marketing training.
