Great resource.

This is an incredible resource. The podcast, the newsletter, and the Content Inc book. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to learn more about marketing and building a business.

Content entrepreneurs’ #1 fan

Joe is content entrepreneurs’ #1 fan, and it shows in every episode. He provides tons of value and tactics to help content creators find their path for achieving their goals. I’ve been consuming his content for years, and I still learn something every time I tune in.

Must listen

I’ve been consuming Joe’s content for years and one thing has remained true: he knows where things are going. He defined content marketing for business, and now he’s turned his attention to content entrepreneurs. These quick episodes give advice on ways to build an audience. This builds on the basis of what Joe learned about creating great content to build an audience that knows, likes, and trusts you. But now, it’s time for creators to capitalize on these content creation skills.

Content Inc. Podcast - Inspiring - UPDATED

Been listening to this podcase since 2014, and it's a Monday-Maker for me at the gym as I prepare for a new week. Like most everyone who listens, being so busy affords only so much time during a day to listen to our faves and doggone it, another fave.... Insightful and inspiring, Joe gets in, gets it done, leaves you with something to think about and gets out. Good job outta Joe.

Simple yet actionable advice

Joe keeps things short and to the point with The Tilt. Any creator should listen to stay up to date on trends and learn from his experience growing content businesses. Love the newsletter too.

Do Yourself a Favor and Subscribe

Just good ol vitamins and minerals. Joe always delivers something valuable here. Great actionable info that gets you thinking about things a bit differently. Highly recommend.

Old school (blogs and e-mail newsletters) + New school (crypto and social tokens)

My favorite part about Joe Pulizzi’s perspective - that is unique to what he’s written about in his book, Content, Inc. - is his blend of proven audience building techniques woven together with cutting edge ways of enticing audiences to stay with you. In each quick 3-5 min issue you’ll get old standbys of how to market your work and new options to use what works now through the lens of a seasoned, but not jaded, veteran.

Godfather of Content Marketing

Genuine, simple, and delivers!

Great actionable content

I really enjoy Content Inc and Joe’s perspective. Great packaging of the content in stackable, actionable bites too. As someone who’s been around marketing for over a decade, I feel like he still keep his content quite fresh. Worth the listen.

A Great Way to Spend 4-5 Minutes

Joe Pulizzi manages to cram a lot of thoughts and information about content marketing into just four or five minutes every week. Eight out of 10 episodes provide you with a solid action item you can use to get better at content marketing. The other two episodes provide a good framework for thinking about an issue and help you decide what you want to do. This is a must-listen podcast every week.

Always thoughtful and useful content

I love the bite size episodes that address a challenge or problem. Joe provides solutions that are doable and feel appropriate for me, a solo entrepreneur. I also appreciate it when he shares his thoughts on current trends and events. It helps me know where I need to stay informed and whether or not I need to take action. Joe's a great marketer to follow if you want to stay on top of where business is going and how to gauge whether or not it's the right path for you.

Joe’s work delivers.

Joe provides hype-free, down to earth insights, ideas, and ultimately value to those who develop content. Listening to his episodes reminds me of business meetings over breakfast at a local diner - I always left those in a good mood with new things to think about. Joe’s work has the same effect - enjoyable to consume and always sparks ideas for me to work on. This podcast is on my shortlist of ones to listen to as soon as new episodes drop.

A cup of Joe every Monday morning with an expresso shot of content excellence.

This is a podcast and the host really deliver on giving you a quick and fulfilling guidance on being a better content creator. I’ve been listening to Joe for years now and a little shamed to say this is my first time writing a review when he’s impacted my entire content career trajectory. I’m proud to say that as a minority creator and entrepreneur this podcast has given me a unique advantage of obtaining actionable insights and knowledge that I’m able to share back with my community who wouldn’t get it otherwise. If you’re looking for a content marketing booster to help improve your overall opportunity for success, you honestly don’t need to look much further because this podcast “Get’s the People Going.” (in the words of Will Ferrell)

Great show🔥🔥

I just wanted to take a moment and say thank you for creating such an impactful podcast! I believe that we all have a voice that deserves to be heard. Thank you for putting this into the world! BE UNBROKEN! @MichaelUnbroken

Bringing Creators to the Next Level

Joe KNOWS! While he seems like an “average Joe,” that is what makes him all the more relatable and reliable. He understands the long game, staying power, and just the right mix between a sprint and a marathon. This short and sweet episodes pack a power punch! A must listen for anyone desiring a deeper understanding of how a creator can become a creative and connected economic force.

Most value packed into 5 minutes

Love the podcast Joe - I get more value in these 5 minutes than from any other podcast all week

Valuable Insights In Under 5 Minutes!

2021 Update: Years later after my original review, Joe is still delivering enormous value each and every episode. You’ll get more out of 5 minutes here than you would after 30 in any other show. I recently discovered this podcast and love it. It's rare to find a great podcast that's so short and sweet, which is nice, but it's even better that I can walk away with great new ideas after every listen. Kudos to Joe for creating another valuable resource for marketers aspiring to create better content.

Michael Jr Episode - Must Hear

The Michael Jr. episode was one of the best ones yet. Keep the great conversations and content coming.

Must Listen for any Marketer or Business Leader

Joe’s work is phenomenal. He’s one of my all-time favorites for content marketing. His passion for marketing is infectious. This podcast is great because it gets to the point, brings all the best knowledge, and feels like your one-on-one with a good friend. Hit the subscribe already and listen to all the back catalogue.

Literally opened my eyes to the world of Audience first Porducts

I first came across the term “Audience First” from the Author Blogger(The writer guy and Write of Passage)- Dave Perell. Though he is not a content marketer, he advocates that one needs to build an audience and then sell to it. I discovered Joe’s content Inc podcast almost accidentally. I think I discovered CMI first which led to his book which led to his podcast. Talk about content diversification!. Joe condenses the information about how SMBs should leverage content marketing to develop a narrative to a niche audience and win their trust by establishing themselves as a “Media company” and then after not mentioning anything about their product or trying to sell anything to the audience until You have won their trust. It takes a while to do all this but at the end of the day, You establish Yourselves as an authority in the chosen niche and generate content that aligns with this niche that helps Your potential customer. And Joe’s energy is a BIG plus. Overall a great listening experience.

Golden nuggets on content strategies!

I just discovered that Joe Pulizzi is back with his podcast! I love these bite size golden nuggets of amazing information. Everything is actionable and easy to listen to. So happy to have rediscovered this podcast.

It’s my map to success

It suddenly dawned on me: what Joe has laid out here - and is laying out - is a treasure map. A treasure map to the content marketing treasure that he followed with Content Marketing Institute, from its founding in April of 2007 to its acquisition by UBM (now Informa) in 2016, and what hundreds of others have followed to successful exits or resounding success. It really should be a paid podcast because the information here is too valuable to be free, frankly. Please keep on laying out the knowledge Joe!

Go out and change the world

Quick, thoughtful and relevant ideas to change the world (and your content strategy). Highly recommend


Glad I happened upon this. Thanks for the helpful content.

Needs to be longer

Everything CMI does, or folks affiliated with it, is fantastic. Too short though!:)

Joe Pulizzi

I follow Joe for a year and a half now. I love that this podcast is back. Keep on with the great insights, Joe. I also highly recommend Joe’s books.

Great show for marketing pros of all levels

There’s a ton of content for marketers in the world. A lot of it’s great. Then every once in a while, you find something like Joe’s podcast. Wisdom, advice, insights and personality make Content, Inc. the podcast for marketing professionals of all levels. I love it!

Wonderful, brief show!

Joe I wish you did this 7 days a week! Thank you for sharing your insights for free on this show, it is invaluable to me as I start my own content marketing journey. My two young kids bought me Content Inc for Christmas - if only they could read it to me while I drive them to music practice!

Valuable Insights In Under 5 Minutes!

I recently discovered this podcast and love it. It's rare to find a great podcast that's so short and sweet, which is nice, but it's even better that I can walk away with great new ideas after every listen. Kudos to Joe for creating another valuable resource for marketers aspiring to create better content.

I binged. Can't wait for the book!

Took me about 4 days (and some really long walks) to binge listen my way through the first 64 episodes. Another piece of EPIC content from Joe. Can't wait to get my hands on a copy of the book when it comes out.

Mighty Bursts of Content

Thanks to Joe and his team at CMI for producing these mighty bursts of powerful tips and tools for creating a better content experience. I especially loved Episode 46.

Content Inc is Content Gold!

I have been following Joe and his team for awhile and he never disappoints! The man creates a phenomenal, shorter podcast that all leads up to his book release...can you say, "GENIUS!” His goal of getting excited for the book is working and you are guaranteed to walk away with more than one idea from each podcast. So I guess where he says you will walk away with one thing, he is falsely advertsing. Grab your Moleskine and pen, be prepared. - @colinmhaas

Excellent! Useful and real info for all!

Joe practices what he preaches in this informative and helpful podcast series. I really do get something I can use from each episode to build my own marketing consulting business. I would give Content Inc 10 stars if I could!

Another valuable service from CMI

I have been a fan of Joe's and the entire CMI team for years now. I also have a passion for the small business person. Seeing this new podcast series from the folks at CMI makes total sense and warms my heart. (I like the shorter episodes too.)

ESSENTIAL wisdom for the audience-first business

The Content Inc. podcast will empower you-the-entrepreneur with essential nuggets of practical wisdom for taking an audience-first approach to business, and for using content as an effective means for achieving the goals of that business. OKAY THAT’S OBVIOUS. You would expect nothings less from a guy who sits at the center of a community of practice; with an unparalleled view across the world of content marketers. But what Joe is doing here goes beyond just conveying standard content marketing best practices. Joe is distilling the very essence of content marketing wisdom into quick, approachable, easy to consume and enjoyable bite-sized chunks. Furthermore, Joe draws from the teachings of some of heaviest cats who blur the boundaries between business and wizardry, such as Napolean Hill, Robert Kiyosaki, and others. Including this podcast into your routine of audio inspiration, will encourage and help you to move forward with vision, commitment, and certainty, on the path of success, delivered to your by someone who has lived that journey, and burns with the fire of someone who can’t help but evangelize a path to a world of abundance that leaves no one behind. There is an alchemy here that can convert doubt into faith; that can reveal the risk that lies in the ‘safe path’. If you are a latent entrepreneur, howling from the depths of your current employers ‘S-curve’, this podcast will be good medicine and possibly a knife for carving your own path along which you will provide value to communities they may have yet to cultivate, as this path becomes your true road to fortune. An audience first approach to business is a very powerful trend, and Content Inc. will help you ride it. More and more we see organizations starting with engaging prospective customers about what THEY WANT before they even make a product. And because they engaged with the audiences up front, they established a relationship, insight and an invested clientele. Crowd-funded ventures and innovative line-extension approaches like Betabrand are instructive and inspiring. And we in the content marketing world have learned that by creating a, valuable, hepful, relevant product in the form of content, that we can identify what people find relevant, establish a relationships of listening and generosity, and gain tremendous insight from the engagement that follows and evolves as our customers become subscribers to us. Content Inc.’s 7 minute moments of audio scripture will compile into a veritable the audience-centric content marketing Tao Te Ching. Which, like the Lao Tse’s text, appears deceptively simple at first, but are in fact ever-lasting-gobstoppers of generative meditational productivity. Like the Tao Te Ching, you can revisit these concepts over and over, and they only deepen in their significance, and as mediating concepts of reflection for you to evaluate where you stand with regard to the directions and standards they convey.

Content Inc. is inspirational & practical!

Joe provides useful advice, tips and inspiration for budding entrepreneurs and startup leaders who want to transform their careers and companies through the power of content marketing. Using his own story as well as those of others as examples, his short lessons provide a great guide for those who are ready and willing work to build a loyal (and valuable) audience.

Wow! Exactly the content I need in my ears!

I am really excited about this podcast! As a marketer professional, I struggle with moving the needle every day, so employing content marketing is really important to my strategic focus - and Joe Pulizzi is the best of the best when it comes to the topic of content marketing.
