People are consuming media differently in 2019 than they ever have before. YouTube videos, blogs, and ebooks are awesome, but people can't always watch or read while they're commuting to work, on a flight, at the gym, walking the dog or waiting in line at the post office.
However, they can listen to your podcast. More than half of the U.S. has listened to a podcast, and those numbers continue to rise, year after year.
Edison Research and Triton Polling have given us some incredible statistics* about podcast consumption:
- Podcast listenership grew by an estimated 20 million people from 2018 to 2019
- Weekly podcast listenership grew by an estimated 14 million people from 2018 to 2019
- Weekly podcast listeners consume seven shows per week on average
- 85% of listeners hear all (or most of) a podcast
With the rise in popularity of podcasts, competition has surged. It is no longer good enough to simply create an audio file, call it a podcast, and send it out. It needs to be informative and engaging. It needs to sound professional, and it needs to be accessible to your audience.
