How do I get more listeners?

The best thing you can set up is a marketing system that looks like this:

  • Automate your mailing list. You can configure MailChimp so it automatically emails your list when you post a new episode.
  • Automate your social accounts. Use a tool like to automatically post new episodes to Twitter, Facebook, etc...
  • For extra leverage, share iTunes URLs. Linking directly to your episode on Apple Podcasts can help your show get additional traction on the charts.
  • Engage on platforms. Apps like Breaker, and sites like Podchaser, allow listeners to rate and comment individual episodes. Replying to those comments helps!
  • Use ads. You can book ads inside of Overcast, and on sites like Listen Notes.
  • Create video audiograms. Use a tool like Sparemin to create short, shareable video previews of your podcast that you can share on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
