Best Marketing Podcasts for Your Business
Marketing is crucial to the success of your business, but it’s one of those areas that a lot of small business owners are unfamiliar with.

So for those of you that think you could learn a bit more about marketing your business, here are five of the best marketing podcasts to check out.

The Smart Passive Income podcast is a weekly show with the one and only Pat Flynn. If you aren’t familiar with Flynn, he is a former architect who lost his job in an economic downturn and turned online to start a business, he started Smart Passive Income (a great resource for your business) in 2008, and it’s now a thriving business.
