    Lessons Learned From Getting Your First 5500 Podcast Downloads

    Lessons Learned From Getting Your First 5500 Podcast Downloads

    What sort of transformation and results are possible once you launch your podcast for the first time?

    Dr Amy Robbins, host of the Life, Death & Space Between podcast, joins Rob Cressy one month after her first podcast launch to give an update on her results. In this episode you will learn:



    * How Dr Amy Robbins received 5500 podcast downloads in the first month despite having only 300 followers on Instagram and 9 on Twitter

    * How to gain more confidence as you go through the podcast launch process

    * How to connect with more people and get guests to come on your podcast

    * How to do more of exactly what you are meant to do

    * How launching your podcast can be easy

    * Why making your podcast episodes bingeable can lead to huge results

    * How launching your podcast can help more people





    Here is a transcription of our conversation and some of the best nuggets from it:

    Rob Cressy:

    And the reason I wanted to talk to you again, is I wanted to get an update on what’s been going on with your podcast since we last spoke a month ago, which was one week into your podcast launch.

    Dr Amy Robbins:

    So much has been going on that I can barely keep up. This has turned into a full-time job. On top of my part-time job, on top of my full-time job of being a mom. So the podcast has probably close to 5,500 downloads. I’ve reached out to some of, really, the kind of predominant people in the field of what I’m exploring, which is death, life, death, near death experiences, mediumship. And so I’m partnering with some of those people to do sort of mini-podcasts about some of the offerings they have on their sites. I’m going to New York in a couple of weeks to promote my podcast on Cheddar!

    Rob Cressy:

    Nice.

    Dr Amy Robbins:

    What else? Those are the big highlights, and then just like the every day. I mean, I just am floored. I think I talked about this last time. I only have now like 300 followers on Instagram. I think maybe I’m up to 9 on Twitter. And so this is just been a viral experience of people just spreading the word to their friends, to other people they think would be curious. And everybody’s listening to all the episodes, or it seems that way because the episodes have consistent downloads across the board. So it’s like if someone’s getting there because they were connected to the person that I’m interviewing, they’re not just listening to that podcast. They’re going and listening to all the podcasts, which shows me that there’s an interest in this topic.

    Rob Cressy:

    Which is fantastic. So have you started working on increasing the level of fan engagement that you can get? So now that you’ve got these interviews where people are consistently listening to them, and even though you don’t have big social numbers, I would think that the next level for this would be, you’re going to slowly start building a community of people and having people reach out to you and say, “Amy, I listened to this episode and I was inspired by this, or it made me think about this, or this was my story.”

    Dr Amy Robbins:

    Yes, I’m trying to. So I’m integrating some more like themed podcasts around people who have had spiritual or mystical experiences that they want to share, to either write me about them, tell me about them, get on an interview, and I will turn those into podcasts. So I’m just starting to do that because the interest has just grown and I’m trying to get feedback as to what people like, what they want to hear more about. And I think people really are loving the personal stories and the encounters that they hear other people have had that give them comfort and hope.

    Arete Syndicate Live Recap | Rob Cressy Show (Ep 286)

    Arete Syndicate Live Recap | Rob Cressy Show (Ep 286)

    The first ever Arete Syndicate Live just went down in St Louis and it was a life changing experience. One of the lessons from the event was to take action immediately. Because of this, Bacon Sports Founder Rob Cressy decided to record a podcast episode with his guest to the event Joe Zangrilli talking about their experience. What is the one action item they are going to take immediately? Since Joe had very little knowledge about the Arete movement heading into this, what was his perception afterwards? What was the thought process behind Rob asking Ed Mylett and Andy Frisella a question in front of the 1000 people there?
