How to Name A Podcast

distribute Mar 18, 2020

So many people get stuck on this. And let me tell you a story I did too early on, after spending weeks trying to name my second show. 

I realized there needs to be a better way to do this. So over the years I’ve borrowed ideas from smart people and modeled what seemed to work.

So today here are 4 important things to consider when you are naming your show. 

Take into consideration your audience and what they are already listening to and what their goals, fears, verbiage, etc. And other factors.

3 Ways to Overcome Self Doubt

launch Mar 18, 2020

Starting a podcast sounds fun but often as you approach the launch a lot of people will tend to get timid about sharing their story and message with so many strangers.

It happens very often. It happens to everyone. Even today as I was creating this video and podcasts, I had the same feeling of that little voice in the back of your head saying you cannot do it and who are you to advise people on podcasting. 

If you want to get validated by other people, you will never launch. You will never share anything of value with other people. Even when I was 23 and 24 years old, I had people emailing me with raving reviews about the concert I shared thanking me for being so generous and giving away such amazing helpful content.

 Before every one of those shows, I had self-doubt and felt like I wasn’t good enough.

This is 100% normal and you shouldn’t let it stop you from sharing something. Now, there is a huge chance that I even say bad things. 

And that’s...

There are lots of tools out there but I BET you’ve overlooked this one  

It’s a great easy and free tool to get exposure for your show, send traffic to your website, contest, music and more. 

The website is producthunt.com.

Now, this website is normally used by the founders of tech companies and people who make apps and different online tools. However, podcasts are big along with these types of people so it lends itself to being a great tool for promotion.

Apple Podcast Category Update

distribute Mar 18, 2020

I'm sure you heard by now about the new Apple Podcast categories. On this episode, you are going to hear me speak about it. You will hear me talk about why they are important, where you need to go, how you need to position yourself and I will run through you the whole entire list. 

But before you dive into that, press fast forward. I want to let you know this is important because one of the biggest things you can do to A. climb up the rankings and B. separate yourself and position yourself as an expert is to be in the right category. 

Guess what, if your customers are looking for a podcast about football and you're in the wrong freaking category and you talk about only football then there's a problem. They are not going to find you. 

This is important. Pay attention. Get in the right genre.  Enjoy.
