What Goes into a Successful Podcast?

  1. Know who your target audience is and know what they want.
  2. Give it to them via audio that is not distracting
  3. Use a consistent schedule so they can add you to their routine
  4. Your content should be so good it inspires people to tell their friends.
  5. Don’t quit
  6. Don’t worry about making money for three years.
  7. Don’t OBSESS about your stats
  8. Focus on your audience.

The math of podcast downloads is

Total Number of downloads = Value X Promotion If you promote an episode that has no value, your results are pointless. If you deliver value but don’t promote it (and by that I mean you might have to get out of your chair) then your podcast will grow slowly.
