Want to build your podcast audience faster?
I’ll tell you how in just a minute.
Hey, it’s Jeff Smith, the Alexa Guy. Thanks for listening.
If you’re a podcaster, you know how difficult it is to get new listeners. With over 550,000 podcasts on iTunes, there’s a lot much competition. And even after you get them to listen the first time…getting them to subscribe is another mountain to move.
But here’s an idea for you…create a daily micro-podcast called a Flash Briefing that supports your brand and drive those new listeners to your full podcast.
While there are over 50 million Alexa devices in homes, there are only 7500 Flash Briefings and theygrow audiences much faster than traditional podcasts. On average, the first month should see around 1000 downloads.
You just add a call to action at the end of your briefings that asks them to listen to your full podcast. And at that point, you have an advantage over your competition on iTunes…the listener has already heard you and knows you bring value to them.
My clients who have tried this have seen their traditional podcasts grown by 40-80% in just a few months.
