Hello pod buds 👋🏼
Do you also daydream about growing your podcast?
If you’re anything like me you’ve probably wondered about techniques other podcasters have used to grow their shows.
Will their strategy work for my podcast?
Is there something more suited to my show I should try?
Do I have to be on Youtube? Or should I incorporate TikTok instead?
What do I need in place to host a live event for my audience?
Whether you have 5 episodes or 500 episodes under your belt, sometimes we need a gentle reminder on how to calibrate our success.
You’ll find more on this below.
Also, 25 May is Africa Day so I have selected 4 podcasts for you to celebrate the occasion with. May also sees our local RØDE microphones distributor celebrate Podcasters Month offering up some game-changing deals.
