Enhance your Expertise Through Podcasting

How to Add Value to your Expertise by Using Podcasts in Your Content Strategy ?


Being all the rage for the last few years, the podcast is still attracting the French. Indeed, 2 out of 3 listeners of native podcasts were not listening to them a year ago!


In addition, it is interesting to point out that according to a study conducted by the CSA (end of 2019), 89% of listeners consume it for information.


Thus, this media represents a great opportunity for brands that want to speak out and show their expertise by addressing the problems of their target. This is one of the reasons why more and more companies are interested in this format and launching their own branded podcast.

In fact, it’s about a particularly interesting format for :

  • Displaying your skills and your knowledge; 
  • Showing your legitimacy in your working field;
  • Creating closeness and a trusting relationship with the audience.


However, podcast (like all media) can take various forms. We will therefore see how to produce your podcasts in order to add value to your expertise. 

Here are several podcast formats you can produce to showcase your expertise.

👂 The tutorial


The tutorial is an excellent way to promote your expertise. Like a blog post that answers a question, you can attract people who are interested in your solutions. The podcast is a format that is perfectly adapted to tutorials because all you have to do is listen: the listener has his hands free and can follow the tutorial while doing something else.

How to Produce a Podcast Tutorial ?

In a Narrative format :

  • Record a professional voiceover that will simply explain your topic to your listener’s ear (sound design will make the content fun!). The narrative format is particularly relevant for a tutorial. It creates a certain closeness with the listener and allows for a clear and practical explanation.

In a Conversational Format :

  • Stage the tutorial by having two people interact around your tutorial. This can be one of your employees and an outside guest. (an expert, an influencer or a person representing your typical customer).

👁‍🗨 Decoding

Thus, it is to explain a subject or a concept specific to your sector. You will be able to study it in order to develop it and explain it to your public.

You can go further by decoding a news topic, which will allow you to show that you are aware of the latest trends in your sector. Decoding makes it possible to have a more in-depth analysis and/or discussion on the approached subject. Indeed, it allows you to show that you have a real vision of your sector and a well-defined positioning.

In a Conversational Format :
