Kajabi has launched our newest product, Podcasts. Now, you have access to the podcasting tools you need to import, create, distribute, and monetize a podcast from the same platform that can manage your entire knowledge commerce business.
What are podcasts?
A podcast is a series of episodic audio based content. They have roots based in radio series and have been called audioblogging or internet radio.
In the present day, podcasts are available for download or streaming from various audio platforms. Whether entertaining or educational, there’s a podcast about almost everything, with some of the most popular genres including business, comedy, true crime, and history.
Podcasts are a rising content medium because of their convenience and breadth of content topics. Listeners can enjoy them while doing a number of other tasks and may enjoy the story-based, humorous, or informative nature.
Why should you start a podcast?
Podcasts can be incredible lead generation and branding tools. Business owners will use a podcast to share their expertise and grow their audience by sharing content that people in their target market are actively seeking.
Podcast producers like using them because they are often more accessible to produce and distribute than video.
Some podcasters will have both public episodes and private episodes, with exclusive content only available for purchase. This means that the content can turn into an income stream in addition to a promotional medium.
Podcasts on Kajabi can be private. So, you can monetize podcasts or include them as part of another product, like a membership community. With Podcasts on Kajabi, you have another option of a product to add your offerings, meaning you can diversify and generate more revenue.
