- Which topics are getting the most views or shares?
Audio content is beginning to emerge from the shadows and become a real asset in content marketing.
We know you’ve heard of podcasts… It’s arguably one of the best ways to slice through the enormous amount of online content and is more personal and intimate than other forms of devouring content.
Here are some other audio content ideas to explore:
The audiobook business is a growing market, with audiobook sales increasing by 16% in 2020 compared with the previous year.
