Some of your favorite podcasts were not overnight successes. If you’ve never launched a podcast before, chances are you don’t know how to begin.
Here are 4 simple starting strategies to launching a successful podcast:
- Have a Strong Mission & Goals
It’s important for you to know why you want to launch a podcast. Figure out what your goals and purpose are, that way you’ll have a better understanding of how and where you want to take this platform going forward.
2. Clearly Define Your Target Audience
Your podcast should never be everyone’s favorite podcast, because a good podcast isn’t for everyone. A good podcast has a strong niche with a specific target audience–an audience that will most benefit from listening to your podcast. It’s okay to aim narrow and start with a small but mighty audience!
3. Expand Your Network With Your Podcast
Podcasting provides a major opportunity to elevate your visibility among your partners and prospective clients. Here's how: when you start a podcast, you automatically have a media platform that communicates your thought leadership to your audience. People want to get in front of your audience. Use your podcast as a business development tool to have conversations with those in your industry. It will open new opportunities for your brand.
4. Utilize Social Media to Elevate Your Visibility
Including your podcast in your social media strategy is a great way to increase your podcast’s visibility and drive listenership. With highlights from your episodes shared on social media, your listeners can stay up to date with the latest episodes and see the best of the best of your content. Additionally, social media provides a community for your listeners to engage with you and each other in the comments.
