Josh Nielsen, founder of podcasting platform Zencastr, tells us why he thinks it’s going to become a necessity for businesses to get involved in podcasting and why a word of mouth PR strategy has worked for him.
Tech startup Zencastr is making it possible for anyone to host a high-quality podcast – but how does the man behind it put his business on the map? How does he get people to use his platform when there is an increasing number of competitors on the market?
By his own admission, Josh Nielsen knows the pains of trying to get a tech business off the ground. He’s ‘launched to crickets’ with previous ventures but with Zencastr it’s different – Josh is right at the centre of the explosion in podcasting and already has more than 15,000 clients!
Not bad for someone who claims to be a marketing novice. So how did he do it?
