Brand Background

The most important aspect of a podcast, is that its voice matches the scope of its brand.

BuyBoxer is one of the top 10 FBA amazon distributors/sellers. They specialize in the optimization and automation of your amazon store. Before working with LaunchPod BuyBoxer used Reddit forums and Instagram as there primary source of marketing and advertising. They were at X Million in annual sales revenue. The business had seen itself hit a ceiling and knew it needed a new marketing medium to generate different streams of revenue.

If the purpose of your podcast is to solely get downloads, you'll lack listener loyalty. Targeting an intentional audience is essential.

The Challenge

Scott Needham the CIO of BuyBoxer (He has since been made CEO) was determined to use a newer method of marketing. Scott was considering using a podcast to promote BuyBoxer but his schedule was too busy to do some of the key components of a truly successful podcast. Scott knew the podcast needed to meet certain audio quality requirements, and also to be distributed and promoted carefully to grow and become a tool to the business rather than a hindrance.

Teaming Up

BuyBoxer found LaunchPod through its network and we began market research to determine the appropriate length, title, branding style, SEO, and outreach strategy for the podcast. With all the data on BuyBoxer’s ideal client persona and our data on how to reach them, we worked with Scott who would host the podcast to build out the content for the initial media bank of recorded episodes with which to launch.

Working with those familiar with the brand we helped get the show into the New and Noteworthy category of iTunes so it could quickly be discovered by those looking for new content. Scott was provided with a Rødecaster and ideal microphones so he could record anywhere of his convenience and just send in the recordings to be edited, distributed and promoted.
