Advantages Of Podcasts and Books

Last week, we posted about the best books that can help you with Facebook ads. Now with this list of shows, we hope you’ve now found the perfect books and podcasts to help you grow your online business’s marketing.

While some books are available as audiobooks, unfortunately not all are (until the robots get less…roboty, that is and AI can read us all bedtime stories! 🤖). The best part about podcasts is that you can listen to them literally anywhere! Whether you’re commuting to work in the morning (once that becomes a thing again, that is!) or going for an evening run, you can take your podcast with you to constantly learn throughout the day.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on any other podcasts that have helped you with your business. Let us know what you think on our social media and make sure to let us know what you think of our newborn podcast Optily Radio by leaving us a review.
