Should small businesses start a podcast? Absolutely! If you know and understand your business foundations, a podcast can help expand your reach.
Welcome to Should I Start A Podcast.
I’m Ronsley Vaz. Each week you’ll hear me, and a star-studded guest lineup, dig deep into the podcasting process. We’ll bring you tactics, tips and tricks to use in your own podcasting journey. We’ll teach you how to build an audience. And we’ll show you how to keep them coming back, show after show.
So if you want to start a podcast, or expand your current audience, this is the show for you.
In this episode, we’re bringing you a portion of my interview on The Morning Kick podcast. Andrew Pitchford and I break down podcasting in the business world. And he asks me some pretty good questions about what does and doesn’t work for business-minded listeners.
If you’ve listened to this show before, then you know my story. But if not, this interview is a good overview of what I do and how I got here. Andrew asks me about Bond Appetit, a podcast I was able to generate a 1.5 million listener base for in about 4.5 months. I don’t tell you about this to brag, but as an example of how quickly success can come in the podcasting world. But yes, I’m aware that this isn’t the average result. In fact, many podcasts don’t even make it past their first episode. I don’t want either of these extremes to encourage or discourage you, just to make you aware of the reality of podcasting.
Andrew and I also chat about what kind of businesses benefit from podcasts. And we focus on the things you need to be clear on before starting your show. This is an eye-opening conversation for those of you who may be doubting the impact a podcast would have on your business or brand.
