In The Binge Factor podcast for aspiring podcasters and seasoned podcasters, podcast strategist Tracy Hazzard explores whether your podcast has what it takes to create and grow a bingeable podcast – where listeners binge on your every word and get to know, like, and trust you in an accelerated way. The Binge Factor is that strategic key to making your show irresistible, influential, authority-building, and successful. Tracy’s unique gift to the podcasting and branding world is being able to identify that unique binge-able factor - the thing that makes people come back again and again, listen actively, share as raving fans, and buy everything you have to sell.

    How Actionable Business Strategy Can Actually Make Attractive And Bingeable Podcast With Annie P. Ruggles Of Too Legitimate To Quit

    You may have the best actionable business strategy to share with the entire world. However, no one would listen to it if you will deliver it through a monotonous and dull podcast. Annie P. Ruggles found the most effective approach to do this by teaching sales communications using her deep love of the 80s and 90s pop culture. She joins Tracy Hazzard to discuss the upbeat, friendly, and wacky format of her podcast, Too Legitimate To Quit. Annie shares how she invites listeners to take action and come back for more by giving them “assignments” and ripping off the final thoughts segment of The Jerry Springer Show. She also talks about treating her guests as family to create deeper connections, why getting celebrities are not always ideal, and how to effectively use a podcast to build a strong community.
