How to promote a podcast

How To Promote A Podcast

Before you launch a podcast, you should know that it takes time to cultivate a crowd who’ll listen to you. Beyond that, you’ll have to formulate great content, interview the right people, use the proper equipment and much (much) more. Then, you’ll need to publish and move on to marketing and promotion. It’s certainly no small feat!

In actuality, most people don’t know how to promote a podcast and, instead, rely solely on social media. While this strategy works on occasion, it’s not the only thing you can do to rack up podcast listeners and spread your brand across the internet.
