So my difficulties with marketing the podcast have taken yet another turn. When we re-launched the podcast, we did so with a business mindset and with the intention of it making money. That was my approach anyway. So how does someone do this? Do most people even know what podcasts are? What makes someone want to listen to podcasts?
These are all questions that I have been using to find ways to share our show. I am a pretty judgmental person, and I usually can tell when my own work is crap. Our podcast is great, genuinely. I like listening to it because I laugh, and it has been the trend that anyone who actually listens to it feels the same way- with our newer material anyway.
So if our show is great, then we should be making some headway, right? We have been podcasting for over a year, and we have barely budged with our listeners. We are on all of the social networking sites and we advertise everywhere we can. We network with bands and other podcasts. Something is still missing, because my blog gets more daily views than our website.
There are a thousand new podcasts each day, and the success ratio is like 2%. There has got to be something better..
All of the popular podcasts have hosts who were already popular prior to their podcast show. People get popular off youtube by being retarded and becoming a meme. We are putting in hard work and we have a good show and we hardly get any recognition.
There is something missing that I need to find.
