During my MBA program, we had some long classes that were split into two halves by a 15-minute break. During many of those breaks, two classmates and I discussed all sorts of topics, from blockchain to time travel. Others would gather in the hallway to listen to our conversations, made more entertaining by the fact that we have totally different perspectives on most topics. So, over a year ago, we started Positive Feedback Loop.
Why listen to a podcast?
I spend so much time at the computer managing social media for my clients that reading more on the computer screen gets tiring. Podcasts are a great way to learn while resting my eyes. I can do relaxing tasks like washing the dishes or doing stretches while listening to a podcast that keeps me up to speed on the changing world of social media.
Let me tell you about some fun and educational podcasts about social media marketing.
- Social Media Lab is a new podcast by Agorapulse. The Agorapulse team does cool social media experiments and tells you the results. For example, "Is Twitter penalizing 3rd party apps?"
- Social Media Marketing Podcast by Social Media Examiner is a podcast that is more generally devoted to sharing knowledge about using social media marketing for business success.
- The Science of Social Media is a podcast by Buffer. They interview people from different industries about their social media marketing.
Add these three to your playlist and let me know how it goes. Tweet me @hatchsteph to share what you're learning! Also, if you're interested in listening to Positive Feedback Loop (PFL), try one of my favorite recent episodes: Internet Exaggeration.
