For independent podcasters, maximizing your creative output with a limited budget is key.
For podcast listeners, a great guest can make or break a show. Choose the wrong guest for the inappropriate topic? You’ll likely lose listeners. But selecting the perfect company to explore your niche can elevate your show and help you attract new listeners.
Running an independent podcast isn’t easy. You have to be your own producer, editor, marketer, and webmaster. It’s a full-time job and then some. As a one (or two) person show, you’re building a brand from the ground up.
Are you thinking about starting a podcast for your brand? Now is the time.
