Podcasting Smarter Tips From Austin Petersen:

  • It can be dangerous to share how you truly feel on your podcast. You risk alienating people. You may lose career opportunities.
  • On the future of podcasting: Podcasts will be important in advancing individualism, and will take power away from mainstream media, and corporations.
  • Find a niche that is not being served well and hopefully aligns with your passion and/or your business. Don't do what everyone else is doing unless you can offer a unique value proposition.
  • With regard to social media: Think of your followers and fans as customers. Give the people what they want. Always serve your audience. Think about what they want to know, and what interests them.
  • Social media engagement has a dollar value of about $1.50 per thousand, so build your audience and engagement to attract advertisers.
  • Your audience will connect with you based on your attitude. What you put out there, you will get back.
  • You can attract people to you through your podcast that can help you advance your cause, promote your idea, or even marketing your business.
