What is a social media marketing podcast?

A social media marketing podcast is a podcast that’s main focus is on social media marketing (wild concept, we know!). Usually, on these podcasts, the host(s) will discuss what’s going on in the world of social media, give their best tips on how to level up your marketing strategy, talk to other experts in the field, and more. Podcasts are a great way for a marketer to keep up-to-date on all the latest happening in social and to make sure they have all the news and trends that are happening in the ever-changing world of marketing.

#1 Talk Social To Me

Our personal fave on our list of the best social media marketing podcasts is ‘Talk Social To Me’. Talk Social To Me is a “podcast bringing you all things social media news, memes, lolz, and everything in-between.” It covers the latest in social media news, with conversational topics and key learnings about what’s going on in the world, and what you should know, but don’t have time to research, because you’re a Social Media Manager and you have no time for anything, right?

The podcast also covers tips and techniques when it comes to strategy, featuring different speakers who actually work in the industry. Hosted by Mackenzie from Flick, it makes understanding a complex and sometimes ambiguous industry, a lot easier. It’s the perfect balance of learning/staying up to date, with laughs, interviews (with fellow creators and social media marketing managers!), and attempts to dissect Elon Musk’s psyche. There’s never a dull moment on the Talk Social To Me Podcast, so give it a go below!

#2 Social Media Marketing Talk Show

This weekly podcast is hosted by The Social Media Examiner team, so you know it’s legit. The main focus is trending news stories in social media, with an aim to improve your social media marketing strategy, across multiple platforms. If you work across YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and everything in between, this is a good podcast to gain insights on specific topics that you want to upskill or catch up on current news and its link with social media.

#3 Hashtag Authentic

‘Hashtag Authentic’ is hosted by Sara Tasker, who approaches her advice from the lens of a Creator who has built up her platform successfully over time. Sara covers tips and strategies, linking them with real-life moments, which makes it feel like you’re part of a conversation with an old friend. Hearing advice, especially from someone who has genuinely seen organic growth on her channel gives listeners real actionable insights they can apply to their own personal (and professional) pages. Sara is an inspiring example to listen to, as she focuses on growing your page from scratch.

#4 The Science of Social Media

The Science of Social Media is a weekly rendezvous from Buffer, which explores best practices and “insights from marketing experts.” A lot of these episodes are geared towards brands, and how they can stand out in an overcrowded market, especially on socials, with crash courses on custom ads, engagement, and more. With this Podcast, rather than listening to each episode in succession, we prefer to pick the episodes that are relevant to our interests, as each installment is niche and targeted toward different audiences within socials.

#5 Social Media Decoded

This social media marketing podcast is hosted by Michelle Thames, a social media strategist and influencer, who has worked with the likes of Olay, Subway, and Lenovo to name a few. Michelle shares tips on social media and business strategies to help brands succeed online, alongside actionable tips and interviews with other social experts peppered in here and there. What’s great about Michelle’s podcasts is that the episodes range from 8 minutes to 38 minutes, which means you don’t have to set aside too much time to have a listen.

#6 The Shine Online Podcast

This one is geared towards smaller businesses, personal pages, and entrepreneurs, who want a collaborative and community feel from the podcasts they listen to. Hosted by Natasha Samuel, each episode focuses on different social media features, and how to use them effectively as part of your strategy – it also goes beyond the social media industry, with advice on speaking to your consumers, starting a podcast (how meta), and landing your dream job.

#7 Savvy Social Podcast

If you’re looking for quick insights and techniques to implement in the social media space, then the Savvy Social podcast is for you. Andréa Jones takes on a new social media strategic technique every week, speaks to other experts, and passes along her own advice from her career experience. Often, Andréa will bring on guests who are able to offer insights and expertise from their point of view, covering Pinterest marketing, SEO, and general marketing advice. Jones also records all of her episodes, so if you prefer video content to pure listening, this one might be more your bag.

#8 The #AskGaryVee Show

Every week, Gary Vaynerchuk (and sometimes a guest!) will choose questions submitted via Twitter through the hashtag #AskGaryVee about anything related to branding, marketing, business, mental health, and more. In each of the episodes, Vaynershuk will give his personal advice on the subject in the short-form podcast episodes. If you’re looking for simple and solid advice on how to get better at marketing your business, you’ll want to listen to The #AskGaryVee Show.

#9 Soulcial Scoop with Kristen Bousquet
