Why growing a podcast audience seems difficult

Why growing a podcast audience seems difficult

  • Podcasts are traditionally only audio. It is essential to grab your listener's attention immediately.
  • Audio is not as easy to share as text or video.
  • Discovering podcasts is a slower process and based on word-of-mouth recommendations and personal tastes.

It means you have to be strategic about how you get your show heard. Having guests on your show can help with exposure as they will share your podcast with their audience.

Do extensive research

One way to impress your guest is to demonstrate that you've done your homework on them. It will increase the chance that your guest will share the episode with their audience or refer you to other guests.

  • Use Twitter advanced search. Filter by min. faves or replies to find which topics started a conversation.
  • Use search hacks to pull up your guests best content. Use search operators in Google or BuzzSumo to find content associated with a person.
  • Research your guest's LinkedIn profile.
  • Quora answers. If your guest is active on Quora, search through their answers for ideas or questions to ask.
