10 of my favourite podcasts for content creators, designers and small businesses

I’ve been a big fan of podcasts for a long time now, but my love for them as grown since moving to London and commuting. I’ve even wanted to create my own… but with my 9-5, client work and content creation, that might have to wait until I have more time to dedicate to it!

So until then, here are my favourite podcasts for content creators, WordPress users, bloggers, designers and small business owners.

Blogosphere: Serious Influence

Obviously have to mention Blogosphere’s podcast Serious Influence, firstly because I work there but also because I love it and think it’s super valuable to anyone in the content creation, influencer, talent space online.

It’s all about the business side of the influencer industry and Alice (CEO of Blogosphere) interviews influencers, influencer marketers and brands about their journeys and work within the industry. It’s full of useful information and insider tips discussing money, brand campaigns, strategies and the future of influencers.

Start with one of these episodes:

PS. Alice is launching a brand new podcast on March 8th called Fundraising as a Female Founder.

Buffer: The science of social media

Each episode has something valuable despite being less than 15 minutes long. It’s a great way to stay up-to-date with all things social media as well as learn some new strategies, insights and stats.

PS. Buffer also have another podcast series called Breaking Brand, which takes you behind-the-scenes of building and launching a business.

Blogtacular

I have listened to the Blogtacular podcast for as long as I can remember. I loved the unique format they have put together for the earlier episodes, but every episode is informative and inspiring. Kat interviews some of the top UK creators across a number of different niches, while also providing tips, answering questions and keeping us updated on all things blogging and social media.
