Podcasting is an amazing way to create and share content! More and more people around the world are consuming it and Canada is no exception. While blog posts and videos are still very popular as content, podcasts are growing in popularity.

Over the past few months, the marketing team has been working closely with our specialists on a series of 5 episodes that cover many topics that support the company's priorities. In order to create a constant, personalized and relevant contact with our clients, we have produced 4 episodes of approximately 20 minutes in length (available in French and English). We believe in the full potential of audio platforms and the podcast allows us to reach our clients on the job site, on the road or in the comfort of their home, at their convenience. Having collected over 600 views (clicks) since the launch 2 1/2 months ago.
Did you know that over 36% of Canadians aged 18 or older have a monthly subscription to listen to podcasts according to a study conducted by The Infinite Dial (according to the latest Edison Research report)? That's huge!
