Now, a podcast for your business is a fantastic way to present your products or services to your audience without constantly pushing advertisements at them. Yes, you are still advertising to your audience but it is through a medium that feels natural and resourceful to your listeners.
You are able to promote any range of content you have available to your customers. Integrate these promotions into the topic of your episode for a seamless ad. This type of organic marketing is beneficial to you and more enjoyable for your listeners. You can make a light mention about what you’re wanting to promote or create a whole episode covering a topic that is relevant to your product, service, or course.
Clocking In with Haylee Gaffin is a great example of this idea at work, most episodes feature a product, service, or course offered by Gaffin Creative.
Promote your products by creating an episode presenting the need for said product. For example, Episode 017 of Clocking In is useful to podcast creators looking to streamline their production. Haylee was able to introduce her product and refer it to the listener. This episode was even able to cover a few products and show the audience why they should be interested.
Gaffin Creative offers Podcast Production services and is able to highlight this in the majority of Clocking In episodes. Haylee is a podcast expert and is able to share her experience in the field with her audience. By sharing her expertise she illustrates to her audience the value of her services. Not only are you able to directly reference your services with ads, but you are also able to demonstrate how your services can aid your listeners.

Many business owners looking to share educational tools to help others in their field have launched courses. Through a course, you can give your students a more in-depth and hands-on look into different aspects of your business. You can promote this on your podcast, too!

Another great way to market your services on your podcast is by inserting your ads into episodes. We’ve talked about mentioning your services as a talking point in an episode, but you can also include an ad break of sorts. Many podcasters do this to highlight their services even when it does not directly relate to the topic. Think of it as a commercial break on TV-you’re pausing the topic to explicitly market what you’re aiming to promote.
With your podcast not only can you market your services in all the ways we’ve mentioned thus far you’re also able to directly point your listeners to your site in each episode.
