The fight for our ears: how to navigate podcast content & advertising

Podcasting is one of the fastest growing mediums for brands to get in the ears of potential customers. Having enjoyed years of boom with relatively low barriers to entry from both a content and an advertising perspective, what does the future of podcasting look like and is this a medium that’s here to stay?

Join us for a closed-doors Q&A with Petrit Berisha, Producer at 11FS and creator and host of the Football Index Podcast, frequently featured as one of the most listened to sporting podcasts.

Join as Petrit covers everything from how to record and market original content to the cost of advertising, how to approach sponsorship and getting a handle on analytics.
