Episode 109: Using a Podcast to Grow Your Consulting Business—with Zack David

Having a podcast can help you get business as a consultant. It can be a powerful marketing tool because people in your market will get to know you as an authority and expert, like you as a person and consultant, and trust you to deliver the results they want.

But does starting a podcast can seem like a mysterious, monumental endeavor? It doesn't have to be if you look to folks who know the ins and outs of how to do it—and do it in a way that serves your business goals.

In this Craft of Consulting podcast episode, I interview Zack David, aka The Podcast Man, who shares his insights on why a podcast can help your consulting business and demystifies the basic approach, processes, and equipment you need to start your own podcast.
