    What Transformation Are You Promising Your Listeners?

    What Transformation Are You Promising Your Listeners?

    Your podcast is like a rope bridge connecting two islands. On one end is confusion, and on the other: clarity.
    Each episode is a wooden plank that forms part of that bridge. People will listen to your podcast if you can be clear on the transformation you’re offering, but when we’re busy shipping regular episodes, we can lose sight of that island of clarity.
    Let’s work on describing your show to your next listener, so they know exactly how it’s going to help them cross the bridge, and get the transformation they need.

    Stop Trying to Design Your Own Podcast Artwork

    Your artwork is the first thing new listeners see, and if they like what they hear, it’ll take up permanent residence on their phones.

    One Small Tweak Will Bring Your Listener Closer to You

    One Small Tweak Will Bring Your Listener Closer to You

    There are three elements of trust: positive relationships, expertise, and consistency. We can show up each week and share our knowledge and insight, but I hear so many podcasters hold their listener at arm’s length, and most of them don’t know they’re doing it. The good news is there’s a really simple fix.
