    Let's get into the show:

    - How Important is Distribution?
    - Spreaker’s NEW Announcement: One-Tap Podcast Distribution in Spreaker Studio on iOS
    Our goal is to create the best all-in-one podcast creation app, one which is portable, flexible and works for every level of podcasters.
    This year we’ve made two further steps towards achieving this goal: in February we announced our first post-production feature, allowing iOS users to edit while on-the-go, and in January we added a new navigation bar, giving users clear access to their episodes drafts, previous episodes, and stats.
    Continuing this mission of creating an app tailored to podcasters’ needs, we’re super excited to announce the launch of a new update.
    Be ready to enjoy our one-tap podcast distribution feature, a function we know will help to remove some of the complications and fuss out of creating a podcast!
    One Tap Distribution – Minimum Effort, Maximum Results. One tap will give you (both Android and iOS users) the power to reach literally millions of new listeners by publishing to Apple Podcasts via Podcast Connect Apple ID login as we pass your feed URL to Apple Podcast Connect No Cut and Pasting, Spotify, iHeartRadio and Spreaker.

    Also, once a podcast is available on Apple Podcasts it automatically becomes available on other key listening platforms such as Breaker, Pocket Casts, Overcast and more – giving you the opportunity to literally double your audience.
    The importance of good distribution is equally as important as creating excellent content,...

    Let's get into the show:

    - Power of Impactful Content & Being Easily Found
    Deliver Value and being entertaining drives desired sharing and word of mouth recommendation. I subscribe to a podcast when the content matches my interests and name, audio quality is good, focused, and they drive value to listener life - What does the listener get from the content or what emotions are driven… impactful!!
    Deliver undeniable value first, and then ask for the commitment of a subscribe in Apple Podcasts or other listening apps.
    Send listeners to your website and place “Subscribe” links to Apple, Google Podcasts, Spotify, etc. You can include directions on what to do with these links if you want… many folks just don’t understand all that stuff

    - Voxnest Data Shows Women Over the Age of 55 Listen to More Podcasts than Men +55
    When looking at the gender split, podcast listening takes a turn when looking at age groups. 2019 might be the year of the woman, with listening jumping from 41.5% to 44.9% for women, while decreasing from 58.5% to 55.51% for men.
    Females aged between 55-64 and over 65 have been listening to more podcasts than males in the same age groups. This likely is due to more content being published for a female audience, as shows focused on genres such as true crime surge in popularity.

    Let's get into the show:

    -The Power of Joining or Starting Podcaster and Listening Communities
    Spreaker has published a terrific blog post about this topic at Blog.Spreaker.com
    The two platforms that dominate for building these communities are Meetup and Facebook or mix of both, but Google Groups does still exist but is a little old school

    The one exception is “Telegram” a platform that has gained traction in Spanish speaking countries.

    Generally Meetup excelled in event discovery by attendees, but Facebook was more appropriate for group discussion. Totally makes sense to me.

    Seems like the power is to use both Meetup and Facebook Groups
    Organizers discussed in the blog post generally feel like Meetup is great for RSVPs but those people aren’t as likely to show up. Those that find out about events on Facebook do tend to show up more. Meetup attendees are notoriously flakey”. I agree, I have run Podcaster Meetups in Seattle for Years.

    Attendance will vary a lot based on month of the year, venue and purpose of the event
    Communities attract all levels of podcaster

    Being an Event Organizer can have many professional benefits - building your leadership brand can help your podcast grow too.
    On the listener community side, I would recommend to create just a Facebook group for your listeners to engage with each other and ge listener feedback on topics and building intra-listener relationships.

    On the show today:

    -5 Steps to Creating a Podcast Budget
    It’s a myth that setting up a podcast needs to be costly or expensive (of course it can be!) but podcasting on a budget is totally achievable. Whatever your budget or level, you can make podcasting work for you

    -Understand Your Income

    Therefore step number 1 is to make a clear goal of exactly what you want to do with your new podcast. By defining the purpose of your show and its format (how and where you are producing it etc) will help you create the foundations of the budget you need to create.

    TIP: Always remember to take into consideration whether this is your profession or a hobby – how much you initially input will differ if you see this having cash rewards or not!

    Determine your fixed costs
    Next on your to-do list is to identify all of your fixed costs necessary for running your show.

    Based on your planning around how you’re going to produce your show, you’ll need to do some research what options there are for your show’s needs and requirements. The things you need to take into consideration are items like your host platform, microphone.

    -One of the main fixed costs (your host platform) can be kept to a minimum, by choosing free or low-cost podcast hosting platforms such as: Free getting started plan options.

    TIP: Make sure you haven’t missed anything by taking a look through past bank statements and tick off everything in there.
    Identify your variable (and one-off expenses)
    Variable costs are those which are necessary for your business to continue functioning but change from month to month. And, if this is the beginning of your podcasting journey you’ll also need to include your one-off costs – money to cover your basic equipment: microphone and headset and also some $ to create some awesome cover art (we’ve written a guide to creating great cover art, here).

    Wondering how to identify your variable costs? Look at what you’ve spent on office supplies, marketing / promotional costs or replacing old equipment over the last 6 months and calculate an average outgoing cost. About to start your podcast? Try and predict what you might spend (we’ve written a blog on launching a podcast you might want to take a look at) and use this to structure your budget for...
