At Casted, we empower marketers to use podcast content as the center of their content marketing strategy. Our users harness the power of conversation to create rich, relevant, expert-driven content that serves their audience and delivers results.
Leading companies with brand podcasts like Salesforce, Drift, Sumo Logic, Pendo, and LogicGate trust Casted’s platform to take the conversations they have and share, repurpose, and repromote them as part of their marketing strategy.
In our mission to change the world of content marketing and help marketers get excited about their roles again, we are working every day to help people more easily access and distribute the conversations they’re having and content they’re creating. To give Casted users even more opportunities to share their content and analyze performance, we joined HubSpot's App Partner Program and became part of the Media Bridge integration launch.
Media Bridge enables users to access their Casted podcasts and videos within HubSpot to then easily embed them into emails or landing pages The integration helps marketers understand how their content is driving traffic, impacting the buyer’s cycle, influencing revenue, and more. Now, with Media Bridge and the CRM integration, the ease of use and combination with HubSpot’s contact analytics will help marketers learn more about their audience and make data-driven content strategy decisions.
Why Marketers are Combining Audio + Video Content with Marketing Insights to Prove ROI
Traditional podcasting syndication channels like Apple and Spotify force marketers to rely on vanity data like downloads and listens to gauge the effectiveness of their podcast. With Casted, marketers can use podcast and video content as part of their marketing strategy, but they also have a more clear understanding of who their listeners are, what episodes are driving the most value, and how they are impacting their business.
By connecting HubSpot and Casted, marketers using HubSpot Growth Platform can understand how their podcast is driving traffic, impacting the buyer’s cycle, influencing revenue, and affecting brand awareness through reports and dashboards and directly on the contact level.
Without integrated tools, when marketers are creating content, they live siloed in other tools. Using Casted with HubSpot lets marketers easily embed audio clips, video clips, and links in marketing content like blog posts, webpages, or in channel marketing.
“With the Media Bridge integration, marketers now have access to all of their Casted podcast content directly from the HubSpot integration, making it easier than ever to pull the important and impactful conversations directly into content, landing pages, and web pages within the HubSpot CMS.” – Holly Pels, VP of Marketing, Casted
