Podcast Growth Hacks Learned in This Episode

  • Pick a podcast topic that’s both trending and underserved
  • Don’t spend money marketing a podcast prematurely. Be patient. Take some time to see where it goes on its own first.
  • Pick a good podcast name versus a clever podcast name. This helps with podcast searchability on podcast players.
  • Use Facebook Ads to build your Facebook page and brand awareness, but not to directly grow your listeners.
  • Budget $5 to $10 per day, or $150 – $300 per month on your first paid ads experiments. At around $3 CPA (cost per acquisition), you’ll get 50 to 100 new listeners every month.
  • Keep growing at some rate, to decrease the chance of burning out and pod fade.
  • If you use Buzzsprout Ads…run experiments on the lowest spend tier, track your results by using a link shortener to track attribution, remember to say your call-to-action in your actual ad read to find that link in the show notes.
