    Why Your Podcast Isn't Growing

    Why Your Podcast Isn't Growing

    Your podcast numbers have stopped growing - maybe even slumped a little bit. And you're not totally sure why. Does that sound familiar?

    In today's episode, I'm giving you some insight into one of the reasons your podcast might not be growing. We're getting real in the conversation about how you can't just create amazing content and expect people to find it.

    If you're not taking time to work on telling your potential podcast listeners how they can listen to your podcast and why they should, you're missing huge opportunities for growth! (I'm also bringing the tough love on why I think it's a bad idea for you to outsource this one key part of your podcast.)
     
    You'll walk away from today's episode with a newfound motivation to pay attention to the workflow of your podcast and why you're the person that's going to make or break your show's growth over the next year.

    How to Be Intentional with Your Podcast Content

    How to Be Intentional with Your Podcast Content

    She's back -- and better than ever! I'm grateful to have my friend (and 4th-time podcast guest!) Mai-kee Tsang back on the podcast today.

    Since the last time she was on the podcast, Mai-kee has done more work with people in the online space who want to be intentional with their platforms and she's sharing all about it today.

    Not only does Mai-kee give us a lot to think about when it comes to the messages we're sharing, but she reminds us to take a look at how we can intentionally support the people in our online communities. 

    As we step into a new year of creating content, we hope that you become more intentional with the messages you bring to the table.

    How to Podcast with a Co-Host, No Guilt Mom Podcast Co-Hosts

    How to Podcast with a Co-Host, No Guilt Mom Podcast Co-Hosts

    It's no secret, I don't have a co-host for my podcast. So when I get questions about, "How do you find a good co-host? What does that type of relationship look like?"...I turn to peers in my industry that have way more experience and knowledge than me.

    Today's episode is a conversation with the co-hosts of the No Guilt Mom Podcast, JoAnn Crohn and Brie Tucker. Together, they both bring decades of expertise to parenting and early childhood. But in our chat, we talk about times when -- as a podcast host -- you lean on others to add valuable information to your audience.

    JoAnn and Brie both share what they believe is important to any working relationship and how transitioning from blogging to podcasting was the right move for their business. 

    My hope is that you'll smile and laugh as much as I did listening back to our conversation as I was reminded just how much fun podcasting with a friend can be. If you're thinking about adding a co-host to your podcast, this is the episode for you to listen to!

Gonzalez rider ,

Thank you

I appreciate you so much! I’m from the streets and you were not someone I would have originally chose to listen to honestly because I would initially think that I wouldn’t relate to you. But I want to learn so I just you a try. I’m so very pleased I did. You have given me so much motivation and knowledge that I now feel i am ready to take this from a thought to an action. I also learned much about life and myself through the experience. Just cause I’m from a different background, I speak different, I look different, and sound different, doesn’t mean I can’t relate to you and it doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t be able listen and learn from you. I hope I have the write words to produce the correct understanding of my appreciation for you and this podcast. Thank you Carlos Gonzalez - advent pool service.
