If you have a 30-minute podcast, it is not a bad idea to chunk it up a bit into five-minute ones. You get more downloads for the same thing.

Another tip I picked up, was to do five podcasts first. Do not publish them straight away. When you are ready to launch, have five ready to go.


In the whole processes, one of the most important things is to make it cheaper and better. You can travel further to get more organic growth and get good content.
Go through that process. Get good content and interview influential people. You will have a little, but a perfect vehicle to go well. Sometimes you need to advertise before you start. You need to get  out there and have a go. You can really push it. You get that seed. Just like putting fertiliser on a literal seed and watching it grow a lot faster.

You need to get  out there and have a go. You can really push it. You get that seed. Just like putting fertiliser on a literal seed and watching it grow a lot faster.

Make sure you always have a successful page. At the end of every event you are running, there’s should be some sort of ‘Thank You‘ and put the pixel on there. Makes it cheaper and more efficient.
