Side Hustle Spark 286: Building a podcast

Hubspot’s Matthew Brown posted this on August 3:

How We Built the Strategy for Our New Flagship Podcast

Key learnings from this post:

— In the formation stage, the team listened to 20 high-performing business podcasts. From that research, they gained four insights, including:

** 87% of the hosts were male.

** Very few shows used audience engagement tactics to connect host with listeners.

— “After exploring various formats, we went with a hybrid format — Chat Cast + Interview.”

— “Engineers perfect the sound of your show.”

— There are eight key components to a podcast team:

Executive producer

Senior producer

Producer

Editor

Host

Managing producer

Engineer

Editorial director

***

Yes, for most of us, eight key roles…oy! But at least learning why these are important can help you prioritize as you plan for and build your own podcast.

I hope this helps as you explore reaching your audience via audio.

How could I?

I merrily traipse along sharing good side hustler stuff with you and it took me 280+ posts before I shared something from Marie Forleo?

I’m even reading her Everything is Figureoutable book and it didn’t dawn on me that she should have been one of the first people this blog should have showcased.

If I didn’t have to live with myself, I’d fire me ASAP.

Apologies done, let’s move on to her 322+ FREE Business Tools & Resources.

She shares resources via 9 categories, each of which could qualify as an online course.

1. Make a Plan

2. Create a Website

3. Design Your Website, Logo & More

4. Support Your Customers

5. Market Your Business

6. Collaborate With Your Team

7. Be More Productive

8. Manage Your Business

9. Learn New Things

She also offers this massive blog post in spreadsheet format.
