The best thing you can do to start growing our podcast… make sure your current listeners are actually listening.
Too often, I’m having conversations with service-based business owners who are focused ONLY on growing their listenership.
They want more downloads and more subscribers. But they’re not thinking about how they are serving their current listenership.
This can impact your show negatively from a technical standpoint. With completion rates potentially being a piece of the SEO algorithm inside of your favorite podcast players.
The real issue here is the second piece, though because it impacts your ability to use your show as intended.
If you focus only on more downloads and listeners, you may be missing the most important piece… conversion.
In this episode of The More Profitable Podcast, we talk about the two ways your current listenership impacts the growth of your podcast. The first is from a technical point of view and then from a larger strategic perspective.
