Small business owners should take advantage of each and every marketing opportunity and publicity tool to help spread the word about their company. As the thought leadership space gets crowded with traditional media outlets like print, TV and online media outlets, podcasts are an ideal way to garner press coverage in an in-depth interview featuring your brand.
