There have been some brilliant Social Media Podcasts in 2020 that cover all aspects of social media and brand marketing. Particularly since lockdown has forced everyone to embrace the digital realm. We’ve been involved in some great podcasts already this year, with more scheduled in over the next few months. Here are our favourites that our founder, Alison Battisby has been a guest on so far.

The Ahead of the Game podcast is created by The Digital Marketing Institute. Every two weeks the host Will Francis meets a guest to explore all aspects of their digital marketing expertise. He also talks about soft skills like presentation and productivity techniques, that we could all learn from. Alison Battisby joined Will Francis for Episode 5 of the series. In it they explore; How To Foster Social Media Communities around your Brand? Alison discusses how brands can create real value in their social media presence and earn a loyal community.
