I have been a podcast listener for several years now. Why? I receive personal on-demand audio information when and where I want.
If you are podcast listener, you know exactly what I mean. If you have never listened to a podcast, you may be thinking, “What in the world are you talking about?”
In a very basic sense, a podcast is simply on-demand radio that you can listen to from your computer, tablet, or mobile device. Although almost all podcasts have a home in iTunes, you can listen to podcasts in multiple forms (more about that later).
The power of a podcast is that you choose the time you listen, what you listen to, and how long you want to listen for. If you get interrupted or have to stop listening, you can resume right where you left off.
As an insurance agent, I was always looking for ways to improve my skills in the areas of productivity, sales, communication, marketing, business, or personal development. Podcasts have turned my commutes into learning jam sessions and my showers into “power showers.”
I want to share my top five podcasts that can be most beneficial to any insurance agent. Some of these are directly related to the insurance industry and others are more general, but all of them provide tremendous value with each listen.
This podcast, hosted by Ryan Hanley and Marty Agather at Trustedchoice.com, is a new podcast, but if you are an insurance agent trying to gain leverage in your marketplace this is a must listen. Topics range from insurance marketing, sales, automation, and how to achieve more growth for your agency. This podcast is fun and informative.
This podcast is part of financial guru, Dave Ramey’s organization. It is focused to help small business with leadership and business strategies.
I look forward to new episodes of this podcast every week as it is well produced, entertaining, and always filled with a tip or two that I can apply to my business immediately. They also bring on some big time guests like Mark Cuban, Seth Godin, Jim Collins, and Simon Sinek.
This is a podcast for insurance agents, by insurance agents. My friend Jason started this podcast a couple years ago because he has a passion to help insurance agents succeed.
