10 Podcasts Every eCommerce Entrepreneur Should Follow in 2020

As an entrepreneur, you receive a barrage of business advice from different quarters – friends, family, investors, and of course, the internet. The problem with an information load is that it’s nearly impossible to separate good advice from bad. And as someone juggling multiple roles in a day while chasing growth, you don’t have the time or the patience to filter through the dense forests of insight.  

This is where podcasts come in. In 2018 alone, 51% of the U.S. population listened to a podcast, and 660,000 unique channels have created 18 million episodes of the U.S. population tuning in to podcasts in 2019. This number is estimated to hit a whopping 74% in 2020. 

They are much more convenient than reading a blog and are short, sweet, and brimming with expert interviews, creative content, and exciting conversations. Some focus on boosting sales and improving marketing efforts, while others focus on the intricate nature of the e-commerce industry. Read through the following ten podcasts that inspire you to do more for your e-commerce business.
