Chris Marr’s top ten content marketing and business podcasts


You may have already read my short story about how I started The Marketing Academy Podcast, if so you’ll know that I’m fairly new to the world of podcasting compared to most other podcasters.

I started my journey as a listener at the end of 2013 when a good friend of mine, Andy Brown from Triple Your Clients Podcast, threw about a dozen shows at me to listen to. At the time I never realised how much of an impact it would have on me.

I recently felt inspired to jot down a list of my top 10 favourite content marketing and business podcasts, which I thought would help you if you’re either looking for a place to start listening to podcasts or if you are looking for additional marketing and business content.

These are the shows that I listen to the most frequently and have really inspired me to change the way I do things in my life, in business and with my marketing. The majority of these shows also inspired me to start The Marketing Academy Podcast and to take podcasting more seriously as a communications channel.

I didn’t want to litter this list just with people I know (who have really great podcast shows btw!), but instead really focus down on the shows that I listen to frequently for business and marketing advice – since that’s the industry I work in and likely to be why you read my articles and listen to my podcast.

If you and I bumped into each other in a local café, and you told me you were looking for a new podcast show to listen to, these are the 10 shows I’d suggest.

I hope you discover something here that inspires you to develop and grow.

Commitment – The 5th C for content marketing success

Content Marketing Success

If you have been following our blog and The Marketing Academy Podcast you will have read and heard me talking about the 4 C’s for content marketing success. If not, you can click here to read the related article in a new browser tab and get yourself up to speed.

In summary, the 4 C’s are:

  • Consumer
  • Curator
  • Creator
  • Consistent

These 4 elements map out a journey. Typically when most of us start thinking about publishing a blog, a podcast or a video as part of our content marketing strategy we go through these stages in logical order as we start to understand what content marketing means for us and our business.

After interviewing and chatting to many business owners of the past few years, this is very much what their journey looks like. However, I recently came to realise that there’s another big ‘C’ that should be included in this mix.
