An expert from Megaphone (by Spotify) will be exploring how to build podcasts into a network, and the benefits for publishers including cross-promotion, scalability, sales and efficiency.

Building out multiple podcasts as a publisher

Whether you're a publisher with numerous brands or have a growing herd of podcasts, managing multiple audio products requires a whole different way of thinking. Immediate Media is one of the best examples of a UK publisher we've found managing this effectively. Their centralised podcast team manages the recording, editing and production, making it easy for a title to test the waters with audio, as well as the benefits of cross-promotion and knowledge sharing. Ben Youatt, Head of Podcasts for Immediate Media talks to Spotify's Chelsea Bradbury about the benefits of a centralised hub and what other publishers can learn from Immediate's podcasting success.
