590 - Podcasting Growth Lesson #8 - Learn Marketing Basics

February 20, 2019

This is a big one for me. So much so that I even created PodcastSuccessAcademy.com to help with it. To become a podcaster you need a mic and a host, to become a successful podcaster, you have to learn what feels like 35,000 other things - but marketing is something you NEED to get a basic handle on, just like I believe that every startup founder should, too. Let's get into it.

589 - Podcasting Growth Lesson #7 - Consider Developing Your Own “DIY” Podcast Network

February 18, 2019

I get SO many messages on social platforms asking me which networks people should try to join to try to build their audience. Dan & Steve at Pacific Content recently shared their opinion about "DIY" networks, something that I've been implementing for a few years now, and I want to talk to you about why that could be a great idea for you and your show - because guess what, if a listener isn't listening to a podcast that YOU own, then they're listening to someone else's.

588 - Podcasting Growth Lesson #6 - Ask Your Audience What They Want and When

February 15, 2019

Entrepreneurs online are ALWAYS saying "ask what someone has a problem with and then create a solution" - it's a cliche, but just like any cliche it has a solid founding - as a podcaster, we can sometimes get arrogant and believe that because it's OUR show, we can always do it on OUR terms. I disagree - let me explain what I did for THIS podcast, The 7 Minute Mentor recently to illustrate...

587 - Podcasting Growth Lesson #5 - Understanding the Three “Pillars” of the Podcast Discoverability Triangle

February 13, 2019

Discoverability is a huge problem in the podcasting field and often, it's seen as mainly a "tech" issue - but it's not, not really. Whilst tech IS a challenge, I believe that as a podcaster you have to understand the three "non-techy" pillars of podcast discoverability woes so that you can begin to overcome them. Here's what they are...

586 - Podcasting Growth Lesson #4 - Develop Marketable Segments for Your Show

February 11, 2019

Ah podcast quotes on Instagram, aren't they cute. Nope. They're boring. Who cares. Radio and TV has been creating segments for years and years and years now, and the reason is clear: they are seperately marketable assets - and because we aren't regulated (not yet anyway!), we can get even more creative here - let me talk to you about the segments we created for the "Captivate" podcast.

585 - Podcasting Growth Lesson #3 - Create ONE Consistent Call to Action for Your Guesting on Other Shows

February 8, 2019

We've all been asked "thanks for guesting, where can people find you online" at the end of a podcast (sidenote: put that at the START, who listens until the end?!) - what you tell people here is VITAL and MUST be consistent, promoting one thing only. ONE.

584 - Podcasting Growth Lesson #2 - Understand That Engagement Means Interaction, & Promote That

February 6, 2019

"Engagement" can feel like a yucky buzzword at times. But for a podcaster it can be vital to a show's growth. You need to understand that engagement means interaction with YOU, the host and more: you need to ASK for it! People WANT to be led and told to do something, not left to guess.
