Podcast Stat Update – One Day Launch

In my last post I told you the strategy I’m using to promote my 4 / 5 day a week podcast. For a quick recap, here is what I’m doing:

1. Interviewing people in advanced so I have a ready made archive.

2. Giving each interviewee the social links (sound cloud, direct link, facebook share) of their podcast when it goes live.

3. Having a few Twitter Peeeps (who have 1,000 – 10,000 followers) tweet out a certain podcast episode: stripper episode

4. Have a mailing list so I can remind people about the upcoming episodes.

5. Start pushing out the podcast on all my media channels (YouTube to Facebook)

6. Wrote an article on Thought Catalog to push people to the Stripper episode.

7. Ask other Podcasters out there to be on their show (Guest Appearances).

8. Ask audience members to review my podcast because I only have eight weeks to get on the New & Noteworthy on Itunes (Free Advertisement).

I haven’t done all of these steps. So, let me recap what I’ve done with the steps above, how it’s affected the stats, what is working, and the next steps to figure out how to make this podcast grow.

Some people would say, “Jonathan, why do you care so much about this blog when only (on average) 50 people look at your blog a day & when you post something the maximum number of people who have read this page on a single day is 1,000.” I say I do it because to those 50ish people who visit everyday… this blog is for us. The community of people who know that this is an insider look into my the life of my struggles. YouTube & Thought Catalog is what is important when it comes to the viral exposure I want.

I’ve been having Writer’s Block. I’ll tell you what it is and why…
