The best DropShipping podcasts

Dropshipping-Podcasts-Avasam

Whether you’re starting out in business, learning a language or want entertainment without needing to be glued to a screen, podcasts can be a fantastic resource. If you’re on a commute on public transport, on a long car journey or you’re doing your daily exercise, you can be learning as you go by listening to a podcast. Essentially, podcasts are on-demand radio shows that you can listen to both on and offline, and we love them.

Since podcasts are another way to reach an audience, they’re becoming almost as popular to record as YouTube videos – and audiences are looking for them pretty regularly too. That means there are absolutely loads to choose from! Today we’re taking a look at some of the best ones that busy retailers, business owners (and those who aspire to be business owners) can use to continue to learn from.

While we’ve tracked down where you’ll find most of these podcasts, in many cases you’ll find them on other platforms too. If we’ve not mentioned your favourite way of listening on one of these posts (such as if you’re a Luminary subscriber, for example) then it is still worth checking to see if the podcast is available there. If you don’t want to listen on any of the platforms we’ve mentioned here (because you’re saving space on your phone for photos maybe!) in most cases you’ll also be able to listen on their website in your browser.

The Takeaway

When you’re handling a busy eCommerce or retail business, being able to get the information you need to stay up to date during downtime is essential. If you don’t know about an important development that is going to impact upon your business, you’re likely to lose money – which is definitely not what you’re aiming for.

But finding the time to get that information can be a challenge. The convenience factor of podcasts is exactly we love them, and we think you will too. They are a really efficient way of getting the information you need without spending lots of time additional time at a screen – which is important, since when you’re running a retail business you’re likely to already be spending a lot of time with your PC or your mobile.
