What is video podcasting?
Video Podcasting is a combination of visual and audio content that follows a particular pattern. It could be simple or complex but it often consists of an image or videos from the hosts and guests on the show.
As people tune in every day, video podcasts bring familiarity to the brands. Video podcasts have better reach and efficiency to retain customers because of the video elements attached to them and can be easily and effectively shared on other social platforms.
