Podcasting has become a force to reckon with. In its infancy, podcasting was viewed as too niche and only viable when the creators enjoyed a cultlike following. Years later, podcasting has transformed into an extremely diverse and ever-expanding medium for content consumption and creation. The largest streaming service providers bid for a chance to create with and distribute content from the minds of thought leaders in every field. Paired with the communities built on social media, podcasts allow for targeted analyses and free-flowing conversation that encourage interaction and user engagement.
Podcasts work so well because they can leverage the reach of social platforms to directly address concentrated pockets of like-minded individuals. Genuine interaction between invested individuals is the secret sauce of community building online.
The e-commerce boom we find ourselves in is no exception to the rule. Across the industry trusted voices and tastemakers disseminate information for eager e-commerce sellers and buyers alike. The information they dish out is invaluable for any entrepreneur looking to take their online business to the next level.
Your first dive into the world of podcasting may seem overwhelming due to the sheer volume of programming but have no fear, we’ve got you covered. Our team over here at Seller’s Choice put together a list of e-commerce podcasts for you to keep an eye on in 2019.

We’ve decided to make a big commitment to sharing more content and we’re going to be pumping out blog posts, guides, videos, and podcasts 5 days a week. The first 30 episodes of our podcast have been so much fun to produce and we’ve played around with so many different formats: short-form, long-form, segment-based and video. Now, with all the extra written and video content we’re going to be producing, it seems fitting to make the podcast shorter and more actionable. So that’s exactly what we’ll be doing.
