Discover the list of my favorite Business Podcasts in French and in English. A digest of added value in your ears…
“Podcasting is great. Total freedom.” : Bill Burr
If you love audio content, you’ve probably noticed: Podcasting is probably the marketing content format that offers the most freedom. You won’t need your eyes like you do with text, infographics or video.
You just have to use your ears, which gives you a lot of freedom to do other things at the same time. That’s why 22% of people listen to them while driving:
Others listen to them while doing other types of work. In short, you have great autonomy with podcasts.
Being a fan of content creation, I couldn’t resist this format which has come back to life in recent years. It is in this logic that I present to you the best podcasts to add to your favorites when you are an entrepreneur.
Ps: Find in first position the podcast of Captain Marketing in which I was a guest.
Also note that this is not a ranking list from best to worst podcasts. Therefore, you will simply have a list that includes podcasts that I find interesting to listen to.
Obviously, the list is not exhaustive and I urge you to share yours with me.
Finally, I took care to add some data that is only valid at the time of writing this article. Therefore, data like follower counts may not be the same at the time you view this article.
The 14 best French-speaking podcasts to absolutely follow
1. Tame Growth Marketing
- Twitter: @Cmarketing_fr with 198 followers
- Host: Stéphane Truphème with 3,849 subscribers
- Average length: 40 minutes
- Listen here: Captainmarketing
As you might have guessed, Stéphane mainly deals with digital marketing and strategies to accelerate the development of any online business.
He had taken a break after starting in 2018 and he came back with a huge frequency of publication: Already 3 publications for this month of January 2020.
This excellent marketer invites other experts in the field to reveal the secrets that can serve as real levers for your business.
I had the privilege of being part of his guests and we had a rich 49-minute interview that you can listen to directly here:
<iframe width=”100%” height=”300″ scrolling=”no” frameborder=” no” allow=”autoplay” src=”https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/746013826&color=%23ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts =false&show_teaser=true&visual=true”></iframe>
As the title suggests, it was about knowing: “How to succeed in the digital jungle”. I had the opportunity to deliver all the challenges that I encounter as an entrepreneur in SEO and the steps that I take to overcome them.
As usual, I try to be as transparent and sincere as possible. This is perhaps what prompted Stéphane to introduce me with the following words:
“Alexandre Marotel is a summary of the values that make it possible to succeed on the Web: transparency, sincerity, passion and effort.“
Is it fully deserved? I won’t claim it, but a few people liked the podcast when I communicated on LinkedIn:
IF you listened to it, I’d be happy to have your opinion😊
Finally, note that his podcast is of excellent quality as this review shows:
“Concrete advice. Whether on the Captain Marketing blog, in his books or podcasts, Stéphane Truphème always manages to give us many examples and practical advice for our digital actions.»
