With podcasts, it’s radio and TV off, earbuds in, and focus on the content. They are a perfect place to introduce your brand and its story to a new audience who is paying full attention while waiting for their subscribed content to begin.
Rise Collaborative finds dynamic ways to tell stories and get information out to the public. Through podcasts, we can insert the human element into story-telling, sports analysis, and reflections on culture and lifestyle.
