    Why Isn't My Podcast Marketing Working?

    Why Isn't My Podcast Marketing Working?

    Before we really get started with 2021's focus on podcast marketing, I want to talk to you about why, generally, marketing doesn't work for people, companies, brands, content creators and of course, podcasters like you. There are usually specific and identifiable reasons that marketing fails, no matter the industry or product being marketed, and your podcast is no different.

Podcasting Mini Morsels

I have been a podcaster for about six months. I found The Podcast Accelerator around the fourth month into my journey. I love, love, love each episode and the gold nuggets I take away from each one. Mark is fun, fast paced and dynamic. I would highly recommend this podcast to anyone who really wants to rock their podcast journey. Thanks Mark for shining your light and love for podcasting the way you do.🚀👍🏼😎

Mr. B Superstar ,

Great resource

This is such a great resource for podcasters. Daily bite sized pieces of food for thought about growing your brand. And the tips are broad enough that they’d be valuable no matter what kind of show you produce. Mark is currently sharing a wealth of knowledge based on his history working in SEO.

No-nonsense advice for podcasters who want to grow

Finding Mark’s show a few year’s back was a breath of fresh air in the “advice for podcasters” space. His short-form episodes are laser-targeted on one thing that working podcasters can do to build and grow their show. Don’t show up expecting 101-level “how to podcast” content. Instead, consider Mark’s episodes as a checklist of solid marketing, branding, and solid podcasting fundamentals you really should be following to ensure your show reaches as many people as it deserves.
