That last statistic is why we’re here. Believe it or not, there are dozens of podcasts out there specifically dedicated to Salesforce. Some discuss Salesforce hacks others discuss implementation and sales. No matter your current knowledge, there’s a podcast you can benefit from. To help make the decision easier, we’ve listed a few of our favorite Salesforce podcasts below.
1.) Wizard Cast. Wizard Cast is a Salesforce-focused podcast hosted by Mark Ross and Brian Kwong. Each episode covers various topics, such as new product features, releases, and company news. Thankfully, Ross and Kwong both have a great sense of humor. Their one-liners, love of satire, and witty banter make tuning in a pleasure. Plus, you’ll close out of the media player having learned something you can implement in the week ahead.
2.) Forcepreneur. Not everyone who uses Salesforce is an established business entity. CRMs are just as beneficial for freelancers and entrepreneurs, too. That’s where Forcepreneur comes in. Hosted by entrepreneur and Salesforce user, Ankit Taneja, the program features interviews with business owners and thought leaders who use Salesforce to grow their brand. If you choose one podcast on this list, we’d recommend this one. Taneja produces one episode per month, so there’s plenty of time for you to listen and reflect.
3.) Mums on Cloud Nine. This podcast is unique in that it caters to businesswomen who are also moms. The program, hosted by Heather Black founder of “Supermums,” interviews professional women who juggle childcare and a career at the same time. Each episode includes relatable stories, Salesforce “hacks,” and in-depth conversations you’re sure to find fascinating.
4.) Salesforce Admins Podcast. You probably already guessed, but this one’s hosted by Salesforce admins, product managers, and community leaders. It’s a 30-minute, weekly podcast that features interviews with business owners who are using (and thriving with) Salesforce. Listening to this program is a great way to see what others in your field are doing.
