If You Don’t Have a Website, YouTube, and Podcast, You’re Just Plain Screwed!

Hello, fellow business owner! Let’s drop the formalities and cut straight to the point. Your business, your brand, your beloved entrepreneurial baby is on the line here! If you’re still resisting creating a website and integrating your digital marketing with podcasting and YouTube, then we seriously need to have a chat. 


Why a Website? 

A website, for God’s sake, is not just a cybernetic placeholder—it’s your 24/7 salesperson, your international storefront, and your own digital Picasso on steroids. It provides a helluva lot more benefits than just being a place for your business name and phone number.

It’s 2024, not 1999. A website is more than a digital business card—it’s the foundation of your online presence. Your website is the place where all other digital marketing efforts should lead back. It’s your authoritative home base, where you’re the landlord, not some renter at the mercy of algorithmic changes (I’m looking at you, Instagram). 

Websites build credibility like no other. Just like you’d trust someone in a suit more than a chap in a Batman onesie (unless you’re at a comic-con), customers tend to trust businesses with websites more than those without. It’s just how the cookie crumbles. 

Now that we’ve established your website is the digital heart of your business, let’s talk about supercharging it with YouTube and podcasting. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth a million, and a podcast is worth a quiet evening at home with a hot cup of cocoa.


Why YouTube? 

One word: engagement. It’s the digital marketing equivalent of the golden goose. YouTube is the second-largest search engine, right after Google. It’s where people are spending their free time, their work time, and, let’s be honest, their bathroom time, too. It’s like TV, but better because you can choose what to watch, when to watch, and do so from any device that can connect to the Internet.

Creating quality video content helps your brand tell a more comprehensive story, explaining products or services in a way text just can’t. Videos humanize your brand, offer more engaging customer testimonials, live demonstrations, office tours, and more. And let’s not forget, YouTube videos can be easily embedded into your website, or shared across various social media platforms. It’s like the Swiss army knife of content marketing!


Why Podcasting?

The answer is in your ear. Literally. Podcasting brings your brand right into the personal space of your customers. It makes your audience feel like you’re speaking directly to them, fostering a sense of connection. It’s the equivalent of having a one-on-one conversation with each of your customers or followers, but without needing an endless supply of throat lozenges. 

Podcasting also allows you to delve deep into topics, far more than what you can do in a blog post or a video. It’s a medium where you’re encouraged to talk, talk, and talk. And let’s not forget, it’s a multitasker’s dream! Your audience can consume your content while driving, exercising, cooking, or pretending to work. What’s not to love about that?


By integrating a website, YouTube, and podcasting, you’re hitting all angles of digital marketing: text, video, and audio. This powerful trinity can supercharge your online presence, keeping you on top of mind and in the earbuds of your audience.
