26% of Americans listen to podcasts

By News

I just listened to my daily podcasts and learned that26% of Americans listened to a podcast in the last month.

And it’s growing.

Radio is dying and podcasts are allowing people to talk directly to their audience with no exclusive platform like Facebook, YouTube or Radio Station in the way.

And podcasts are more niche which I think is great, more passionate fans.

If you want to be a leader of what you do then you need a podcast now because your podcast is the center of your tribe.

And I want to help you get your podcast out.

I’ve studied the top podcasts. Interviewed quite a few podcast hosts and even have a best selling book on podcasts. I have a perfect podcast episode template and email template for clients that spell out exactly how long for each segment and what the segments talk about.

If you want to get the the growing podcast listeners then book an appointment with me and let’s talk about doing your podcast.

Buying Fake Podcast Rankings Are Worthless

By News

Be careful of services that promise your podcast to be in the iTunes Top 10. They are probably using a click farm (robots or very low paid labor in China that just clicks on subscribe button over and over again).

Can a top 10 place on the Apple Podcast Chart be bought?

A company called Podcast Influencer promises to get your podcast into the iTunes Top 10 for $15,000 per month.

Podnews has seen multiple emails from Podcast Influencer to prospective clients. In it, the company claims to get any podcast into the iTunes Chart – and maintain position in that chart for any period of time.

So confident are the company of their ability to buy into the iTunes Charts that they offer a 48 hour money-back guarantee. Placings start at $5,000 per month for a top 50 listing in a podcast’s primary category.

The Newark OH, USA-based company claims, in emails to prospective clients, to be able to achieve this by ‘marketing to real people, who are prequalified podcast listeners’. Their website claims they have a ‘a thorough understanding of select algorithms’, and promotes its service as a way to give your podcast “the potential to access & create lucrative partnerships with some of the biggest advertisers in the world”.

Placings on Apple’s Podcast Chart can be bought

These top 10 are not based on downloads, it’s not a reflection of the podcast’s total audience. It’s not an advertising method. The company doing this places a value of $15,000 on a top 10 listing. But, it’s worthless and only good for posturing that you have a top 10 show. It’s all fake.

8 Advantages of podcasting, #6 is my favorite

By News

I was talking to a potential client yesterday and she asked what the advantages of podcasting were.

Here are my top 6 advantages of being a guest on a podcast.

1. No travel cost

You can podcast from anywhere, literally from the beach if you want. (note to self I should do that). I would recommend a good microphone though. 🙂 But, seriously you don’t have to fly somewhere, get a rental car, stay in a hotel to speak on stage for 90 minutes. You can have your feet up and talk into a microphone.

2. Doesn’t cost you anything

It costs you nothing to appear on someone’s show. No more $30,000 speaking fees to get on someone’s stage. Just appear on a lot of podcasts instead for free.

3. Massive Visibility

That podcast that you are on will be everywhere. And people will see it, including other podcast hosts. It’s just awesome.

4. Instant Credibility

It’s like when I was on CNN radio many years ago, it’s instant credibility. The audience trusts that the host did their homework and brought on a good guest. You get an implied indorsement and it makes you an authority in your niche.

5. Bond with the audience

Podcasts are more personal than most media. Hosts are people without having to be on a big media network. It’s one-to-one with the audience getting to get a listen thru their earpods.

6. Connecting with the biggies

Sometimes being a guest or having a big guest on your show is can lead to knowing them outside the show. That could lead to future partnerships or deals.

7. Leads

You’re on the show giving great content and for the people that want to continue their journey with you they visit your offer that you mention on the show. And that leads to enrollment conversations and cash. Your presentation is your chance to present what you have to the best of your ability. Steer them directly to work with you.

8. Quick & Easy

Since you will talk about the same thing each time you are on a podcast it’s real quick and easy for you. You just get on the line with the host and talk. You can even give them beforehand questions to ask you. All you have to do is perform.

And even the tinest of shows have hundreds of raving fans listening.

The hosts (and their assistants) do most of the work. Guests just show up and answer question. It’s easy.
