2. The UnPodcast with Scott Stratten and Alison Kramer.

Alison is the producer/co-creator and Scott is the President of Unmarketing. Scott is currently one of the most memorable, if not well-known speakers on today’s ‘circuit’ and many people say he has made his career by calling out the BS companies tend to get caught up in, especially when marketing online. One of his most popular books is titled ‘QR Codes Kill Kittens’, so you already get a sense of how he gets his point across.

Scott and Alison’s ‘Unpodcast: The Business Podcast for the Fed-Up’ focuses on telling you what not to do in business before you get to figuring out what you should be doing. And they’re never short of examples. Real-life examples, tips and guidance and a mission to get companies to stop marketing, start engaging. Disclaimer: no Kittens were killed in the making of this podcast.



3. The Small Business Big Marketing Show with Tim Reid.

This last suggestion might not be one the more regular podcast listeners are aware of, but I love the amount of inspiring content that Tim, or Timbo, as he calls himself, covers in the show. The Big Marketing Small Business Show features a host of examples of how smaller businesses and those with more modest budgets have managed to compete in a noisy world to grow their businesses. Some with extraordinary results.

What I like about this show is some of the more creative nuggets of inspiration you can get from the many business owners Timbo gets on the show. Definitely one to give a test drive if you’re interested in quirky ways to market your business and a marketing podcast I’ve dipped in and out of for over 4 years. Staying power.
