The Goods

  • Focusing on the individual people is the MOST IMPORTANT thing you can do
  • Knowing first and last name, email address, and at LEAST 1 personal fact (if not more) of about 25% of your listeners
  • If you know specific people who would benefit from your episode, share it personally with them – value!
  • You can share your podcast all you want but as soon as a LISTENER shares it with others, then it explodes
  • Profits will increase faster if you focus on client retention rather than client acquisition (FOCUS ON CURRENT LISTENERS)
  • Keep being who YOU are – be true to yourself

  • Another great episode. Thanks for mentioning me. I mention my listeners on my show and it was fun to hear my name on your show.
    I love this idea of building community and getting to know your audience. I’m really focusing on this and I too heard this first from Cliff Ravenscraft. I’m doing a weight lose challenge on my Disney World podcast for example.
    As far as a personal fact, I usually tell people at networking events at work that I have a podcast I co-host with my daughter. :) (Because it’s unique) Beyond that, I’m a Tech Lead at a major insurance company in the Hartford, CT area.
    I’d really like to attend a podcast conference next year and connect with other podcasters.
    Keep up the great work! Can’t wait to hear Cliff’s interview.
