How to Promote Your Podcast

Podcast Promotion Guide

Promoting your podcast is easy if you're doing it right. We'll help you figure out how to reach out to your potential listeners and convert them into a loyal audience.
Publish in as many podcast directories as possible
You never know where your podcast audiences will choose to get their podcast. So to play it safe, try to publish your show in as many podcast directories as possible.
Improve your podcast's SEO
Ranking high on Google and other SERPs will help you bring more traffic to your podcast website and increase your listenership. Post podcast transcripts on your website and naturally fill them with as many keywords as possible to improve your podcast's SEO and make it more visible.
Advertise your podcast
If you can promote your podcast for free by just providing good podcast content, taking care of your social media, and using word-of-mouth, then great. If not, consider podcast advertising. Include social ads, display advertising, and email marketing in your podcast marketing strategy.

How to Promote Your Podcast Episodes

Podcast Promotion

Be passionate about your podcast topic

The podcasting industry is highly competitive, so if you're not genuinely interested in your podcast topic, your audience will feel that and tune into someone else. Research your topic, invite someone influential on as a podcast guest, and make your show as engaging as possible!

Podcast Promotion

Consider podcast marketing

Podcast marketing is when you promote your show on someone else's podcast. Try to use it by creating a short ad that will be heard on one of the well-known podcasts in your niche, inviting its listeners to check out your show. You can also try cross-promotion if the podcaster agrees.
