"The ones that get it right are all doing a key thing: They're not making a 30-minute podcast that's basically a sales pitch. People want their time to be worthwhile," says Rob Walch, VP of podcaster relations at Libsyn. Garnering 500 downloads within the first month of release should also be seen as a success; Walch compares it to talking to the same amount of people at a conference. But with a podcast, "people are tuning in every week."
“How to Make Branded Podcasts That Pop”
Quick Facts to Consider
Audience is growing, exponentially.
According to market research firm Edison Research:
- 55% of the U.S. population have listened to a podcast
- An estimated 104 million people listen to podcasts monthly
- An estimated 68 million people listen to podcasts weekly
Currently there are more than 2,000,000 podcasts!
Sounds daunting, doesn’t it?
It might, until you consider there are:
- 5.7 million daily blog posts
- 90 million business Facebook pages
- 25 million business Instagram pages
- 600 million blogs
- 1.7 billion websites
- 5 billion YouTube daily video views
That’s a lot of competition. Suddenly, 1,600,000 seems pretty manageable and a great way to break through the clutter and noise.
“Social media usage appears to have stalled. Facebook and Twitter have declined, especially with younger users... Podcasting has reached a milestone, with the majority of Americans now saying they have listened to one... Online audio has reached a new high in weekly time spent listening, driven by podcasting and smart speakers.”

(Expertise, Authority & Trust)
Not every company is high profile enough to be considered a household brand. E.A.T. podcasts are designed to demonstrate expertise in an industry or field, position your company as the authority, and develop trust among prospects, current customers and employees. These are not intended to generate a large audience, but establish credibility among specified target listeners critical to the success of your organization.
Branded podcasts align customers with the core value proposition of a brand. It’s more about the “why” you do it and less about the “what” you do. Branded podcasts are intended to leverage primal and emotional connections to brands and what they represent. These types of shows are difficult to produce and often take time to generate a following, but essential to larger brands seeking to create long-term loyalty.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I host my own show?
We strongly advise against this. First off, it’s more difficult than it might seem. Second, it’s incredibly time-consuming and most executives simply don’t have the bandwidth to dedicate. Having a professional host for your podcast also indicates organizational strength and authority. The Morey team interviews and selects professionals who are trained to conduct interviews, read scripts naturally, and convey a sense of authority.
Why can’t I do this on my own?
The short answer is that you can! Podcasting has a very low barrier to entry if you know what you’re doing, own the right equipment and have the time to dedicate. However, producing a great podcast is a much higher barrier to entry. Quality is essential, particularly because it represents your brand. Producing a great podcast involves proper audio controls with quality microphones and soundproofing, skilled engineers with editing skills, the knowledge of how to distribute the show on available networks, and the ability to create compelling narratives that truly tell your story.
How many downloads or subscribers should I expect?
This depends on a number of factors, beginning with the type of show you choose to produce. For example, E.A.T. Podcasts are designed to target a select group of individuals, such as current customers, top prospects or employees. Branded Podcasts are designed to reach a wider audience of net promoters that fall into multiple categories. Depending upon the interest in your industry or chosen topic, the number of followers your brand already has, or your willingness to promote the show through paid channels, these numbers can vary significantly. Our advice is to focus on creating high-quality content that provides useful information to your target audience.
How do you determine the ideal length of an episode?
This is equal parts art and science. The art is to create a compelling narrative that is long enough to provide value but short enough to maintain engagement throughout a complete episode. The science behind the proposed 35-minute average length is based upon research into listening habits. For example, this is approximately the length of the average American commute. But since 50% of podcast listenership is now considered “in-home,” there is a strong rationale behind producing episodes that can be heard in their entirety whilst multitasking in the home.
How often will you release episodes?
Seasons are designed to be “dropped” (released) all at once. Once a listener is captured we want to engage them for as long as possible. The idea of “binge-releasing” an entire season allows the listener to digest episodes at the height of their engagement.
Will my podcast have ads?
Since your podcast is designed to promote your brand, this isn’t something that we recommend. Ads can be noisy and disruptive, and the idea behind producing an E.A.T. or Branded Podcast is to engage your target audience, specifically. No need to muddy the waters. Having said that, if your podcast garners a large following, it’s something to consider, as long as the integrity of your core messaging isn’t negatively impacted.
