When planning and creating thought leadership for your brand, many times that responsibility falls with the marketing team, and more specifically, your content marketer to create that supporting content. For many businesses, thought leadership originates there. But these brilliant marketers, while experts in marketing your business, are likely not the experts in your company’s products and services. Why put the pressure and expectation on them to create thought leadership for your brand? What if they could harness your brand’s expert voices to create true thought leadership, unique to your brand?
“Podcasting is a powerful tool that can help marketing teams capture and amplify the voices of experts within the company as well as external stakeholders,” said Jeanne Hopkins. “It’s incredibly effective to simply share soundbites of various content, and it’s not difficult to get over the hurdles and start a podcast, if you haven’t already. Maintaining consistency is always key.”
Jeanne has 30 years of experience in data-driven metrics, team building, and customer experience. Previously, she was Chief Marketing Officer at travel management software company Lola.com where she launched a series of podcasts that won the 2020 Finny Award for audio content. She has held various executive marketing roles at Ipswitch (now Progress), Symmetricom (now Microsemi), SmartBear, MarketingSherpa, Continuum (now ConnectWise), and HubSpot.
