254. How to Create Relationships with Your Podcast Audience

In the podcasting world, you’re bombarded with the importance of the “Call to Action”. A CTA is indeed important, but what about the call to engagement? Engagement can’t happen until you create meaningful relationships with your podcast audience.

On This Episode Of Should I Start A Podcast

Never underestimate the power of listener engagement.

Engagement is the number one reason why your listeners keep coming back show after show. It doesn’t matter what your podcast is about, if your audience trusts you, you’re an authority on that subject. So how do you get listeners to trust you? The answer is by creating and building meaningful relationships.

This episode features my appearance on Podcast Me Anything. The host of this great podcast, Mathew Passy, aka The Podcast Consultant, grills me on all things engagement. If you haven’t heard my story about how I got into the world of podcasting, this is a great introduction to the craziness that is my life. But after all that is out of the way, we get into the meat and potatoes of sustaining a show.

When it comes to monetising your podcast, you’re not going to get very far without audience engagement. So Mathew and I discussed my somewhat unique approach to engagement and why I always put a strong emphasis on listener relationships. If you’re unsure of your listener engagement approach, or just want to amp up its effectiveness, this is the episode for you!
