The mind of a marketer is always racing with new ideas. Any marketer will tell you that from the time they wake up, to the minute they fall asleep (often difficult!), they are constantly busy and under pressure thinking up the next big thing.
Because time is of the essence, learning as much as they can, as quickly as they can, about new trends and tactics is crucial. Thank goodness for podcasts! Whether driving, going for a run, or in line refueling the coffee habit, podcasts are an easy way to get new and vital information. Here are just a few of the top ones recommended for marketers.
