LinkedIn is venturing into a new digital network platform, podcasts. In February 2022, LinkedIn launched a podcast network pilot program. The pilot program is called LinkedIn Podcast Network and allows listeners to connect with leading professionals. The podcasts range in topics from recruiting, technology, and mental health in the workplace.
LinkedIn’s Podcast Network
The network will consist of podcasts created by LinkedIn’s in-house news team along with professional experts. LinkedIn shares professionals like Jonathan Fields, Mita Mallick, and Dee C. Marshall will be a part of the pilot.
LinkedIn is differentiating itself from other podcast platforms as it’ll utilize its social platform in conjunction with the podcast. After listening to the podcast, hosts will continue the conversation through posts, videos, newsletters, and live events hosted on LinkedIn.
The good news is that you won’t have to download a separate podcast platform to access these new shows. Podcasts will be accessible on major podcast platforms like Apple Podcasts and Spotify and LinkedIn.
Why We Care
Podcasts continue to expand and are no longer just to hear about political news, celebrity gossip, and true crime theories. Businesses are continuing to use this digital platform to connect and engage with their audience. LinkedIn is targeting its own global community and creating content that is aimed at its professional user base. This medium is evolving into a strategy to communicate with potential customers.
